standard poodle




In Oslo we met the sweetest dog in the world (shh don't tell Rufus): a beautiful, white standard poodle! I never really knew how incredibly soft poodles are! i always thought their curls would be more rough to the touch. but this poodle was one of the softest things i ever touched and it was so calm and cuddly, just leaning into the stroke of two complete strangers acting like mad-dog-people! we so wanted to steal it back home! now we have to add Standard Poodle to the list of dog-breeds we need to own at some point along with basset hounds, greyhounds, scottish deerhounds and of course more whippets :)

Nidhi: yes the light in oslo was so beautiful!
Emma: yeah it was really funny and weird! My sister played a showcase at Mono and it was their first time in Norway -and were some really sweet people there who seemed to enjoy the music which was very cool
Epe: I have only been skiing on norway a couple of times when i was a kid but that is so long ago that i don't really remember it. there are so many places to visit in this world -how are we gonna get around to all of them??

Aww what a cutie! I thought I heard somewhere that poodles can be quite agressive... That was clearly wrong!

dogs dogs...its si strange how different they can look!? always so fashinating. And the personalitys too, always surprising! I cant see me with another dog than Stina, but it would be fun to have a ..grand danois..or boston terrier..bullterrier...and I think weimaraner is cool! And whippets. Our neighbour bought a chocolatbrown whippetpuppy yesterday! Hope Stina get to say hi to it some day..!

Especially the last photo melts my heart every time I see it - that poodle was amazingly soft, like I imagine a baby-lamb would feel like
