What is/are your dog's name(s)? Barney, his first owner called him it, he had learnt his name when we bought him so it had to stay. We often call him, barney rubble, barn face and barn egg.
How old are they/When did they become a part of your family? Around three months
How did they become a part of your family? My mum had always said if we had a dog it would have to be a poodle as they don't shed their fur so no fur to hoover up all day and it wouldn't effect dads asthma. We were in town and saw an advert for a toy poodle puppy in a petshop window, so we were talking about it all weekend, dad thought mum was depressed that she couldn't have a dog (haha she wasn't!), so for that reason dad let us go to the owners to house to see what he was like, then me and my sister pretty much forced out mum to get him.
Why did you choose that breed? As above, toy poodles don't shed their fur and he is nice and small
Can they do any tricks? No!
Tell us about your dog's personality/likes/dislikes, or feel free to add a few random facts about your precious pooch: He is very weird, if you hit things, such as hitting the sofa cushions to plump them up, he barks like mad and nips your hands to stop you from hurting the cushion! He cries when you play wii as well as he thinks you are hurting the tv. If you are walking him and he sees a dog he will often cry until you let him go and sniff them to say hello, or he will randomly decided growling at the biggest dog in the world is a really good idea!
He has a girlfriend, it is a little red furry bed mat, if you ask him where his girlfriend he will go and find her then hump her, if you have hidden her he will cry and just walk around humping the air.
He is very very jealous, if you are reading the paper he will jump on your knee or paw at the paper so you have to pay him attention, if you stroke another dog he starts crying.
He is scared of our cat, when he is laid out on the sofa she will jump up and he will get off almost straight away and then she will lay in his spot, so now she sits in all his favourite spots, especially the windowsill.
He will eat anything, apart from his own food of course.
He tries to look at you so you don't notice, he will be laying down and he will just move his eyes to look at you, as soon as you look in his direction he looks away really quickly.
When he wants something, normally your food, if you are sat on the sofa he sits on the floor in front of you and cries, because our flood is wooden his back legs slide apart, so he has to shuffle backwards to close his legs. As he is so used to that happening when he begs, even on carpet he will stand up and take a step backwards while he is begging!
