We’re running towards the Serpentine Gallery for our last 2015 Hyde Park Doodles Meet! But no one was there – so maybe we’ll go squirrelling for a while Mummy said – not a good idea, poochies! So we hung around waiting for the others to come …And they did! All 14 of us! Our group photo –Left to right – Alfie, Miuccia, Bobby, Rusty, Darcy, George, Rupert (cavapoo-bichon), Spencer, Lucca, Dudley, Monty (Goldendoodle). And Bubbles (shih-tzu) running away from the group! Missing from photo – Merlin and Tiger
We had two new friends today – Rupert, a cavapoo-bichon frise (in navy jumper) and Monty, the golden doodle that we met last week! And Miuccia got to play with her half-brother Merlin Awww! Isn’t that sweet!While Rusty’s taken a liking to little Bubbles (shih-tzu) – he probably thinks it’s a Poppy (his girlfriend) lookalike! Then along came Tiger …Tiger came to our last meet and we hope she will continue to come to ours for a long time yet – As long as she’s able to we would be so happy to see her.
An impromptu mini-group photo for Tiger –Left to right: Bobby, Bubbles, Rusty, Monty, Tiger, George, Darcy and Alfie
There were others who were curious about us –A Pomeranian who also has meets in the park was mistaken and thought she was there for her meet – but Bubbles, the shih-tzu went to her and said – hey you! You’re my size.
But we didn’t really like this poor bull-dog. He got chased away.And along came this giant of a dog … and it was the smallest of us who went to check him out – George and Bubbles! The Great Dane was desperately wanting to play with us but George was being bossy boots and told him off Then all the others started to create quite a raucous – but not me! I was very curious about him and maybe because I know better that if he chose to, he could probably chomp up George in one gulp. But he wouldn’t – he was a gentle giant and I rather liked him.But his owner thought he had enough abuse and led him away – with difficulty.Goodbye O great one! (Mummy said – beautiful dog!)
I had a contemplative moment – But Mummy knew better – she came over and told me – “Don’t even think about it!” She knew I was on the lookout for squirrels and would make a dash for it if I saw one! And she was having none of it. 🙁
This is our last meet of the year. The next time we meet we will be way into 2016 – our fourth year of Hyde Park Meets! We’ve met so many new friends and our once Cockapoo meet is now a doodles meet pour all sorts of others! LOL!
May’s comment: Given the not so nice weather plus in between holidays, we had a pretty good turnout of about 14 doodles. We look forward to seeing all of you again in the new year. The next meet will be 31st January – the last Sunday.
Till then – HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
