Dog of the Day: Duchess the Diabetes Alert Dog in Training

I’m at the Maker Fair today, and forgot to post something from home, so y’all get a little something live from the fair: Duchess the 5-month-old standard poodle. She is in training for an important job, and I think she’s doing just fine. Even if she does get a little tuckered out sometimes.

    looks like the bear from that old kids show, in dog form

    Duchess seems like a very nice dog, but I wish someone would have her professionally groomed so she would look like a standard poodle. Poodles look wonderful when
    properly groomed! Duchess could be gorgeous!

    I like groomed poodles (they are so soft!) and the ungroomed look. When their hair is long like Duchess’s, it’s a huge pain to brush though! Poodle hair gets terrible tangles and mats. I keep my own poodle clipped fairly short, because I have no patience for brushing…

      I never really thought about that. (Can you tell I’ve never had the actual opportunity to own a dog myself?) Does sound like a lot of work! And I definitely am not a big fan of the dreadlock poodle look.

    Duchess looks awesome! What an amazing dog and she has a very important task too.

      Isn’t she pretty? And for a dog that young, she was really taking very well to training. Calm, friendly but not too friendly, and very polite.
