Hungry Poodle Pack Expands

by Anne Bennett on February 10, 2012

Meet Whitman, Julia’s half-brother and the newest member of the extended Bennett poodle clan!

Whitman, named after poet Walt Whitman, belongs to our daughter Elizabeth and her husband, Brendan, and he is partially the reason why I’ve been incognito recently. Early last week I flew to Tampa to help Liz and Brendan pack for their move to Kansas City. Champ and I drove behind them in their second car back home, and on the way we stopped in Atlanta where they bought Whitman from Karen, preeminent poodle lady.

Whit was a very good boy on the drive from Georgia to Kansas, and as you can see, in the four days he’s been here he has acclimated to his Midwestern home. As his grandmother, I am also proud to say that he’s very hungry, which makes him right at home with the rest of the pack. Karen says he’s going to be a big boy too, perhaps 65 pounds. For a poodle, that’s livin’ large!

Speaking of which, we’re all living under the same roof (and a half) until they find a house of their own. For the foreseeable future I look forward to lots of poodle adventures, culinary and otherwise.

How lucky am I?

How cool having your daughter move here. The little poodle is so cute. You will have to google dog treat recipes.

My son just moved from Austin, TX to Parkville, MO. I am so happy to have him, his wife and my three grandchildren so close. They also have four dogs, a Mastif, a Boxer, a Skipperkey, and a Yorkey. So, I have four grandchildren and four granddogs. I miss you at WW.

Adorable! What a cutie. For a minute there I thought Anne got a puppy and it’s not a black little furry face. Gordon sends his love.
