Welcomes you to O'Shannonville
Home of Gus Gus O'Shannon and his family of RED POODLES...and much much more!
O'Shannonville is a small community nestled deep in the Oregon woods, once inhabited by a large Human Family with six children, 2 parents and ONE dog plus a big organic garden.
Life was peaceful and serene in O'Shannonville until Mrs. O'Poodles was stricken with the dread post-PMS disease known to only a few, as MPS or "Multiple Poodle Syndrome"!. No cure has been found for this puzzling condition, however some folks seem to be totally immune...but not poor Mrs. O'Poodles. Actually, it's poor MR. O'Poodles who has suffered the most from this invasive disease, even though he shows strong signs of immunity. Meanwhile, MRS. O'Poodles remains oblivious to her condition.
An example of MPS...You can't have just ONE Poodle!
Mr. and Mrs. O'Poodles' six children having mostly grown up, now with little ones of their own, fled the woodsy homestead, hoping to remain unaffected by MPS.
Most succeeded, however one is highly suspect, although she tries to hide it.
Here is Stormy with her daughter Honor.
Looks like Honor takes after Granny O'Poodles. heh! heh!
Honor helps Granny O'Poodles by loving and holding all our new puppies.
Mama Stormy, Papa Richard and big sister Madison all love their dogs and are in real danger of developing MDS...Multiple Dog Syndrome.
They have recently added two Great Danes and a Yorkie to their family.
My youngest son Andy and wife have a Beagle...just one. How impoverished!
I guess that's OK 'cause they have a gorgeous son to keep Lulu company...his name is Judah and he loves dogs, just like Granny O'Poodles.
Andy "fell for" a little blonde puppy, an eight week old Double Doodle from Mrs. O'Poodles Pack, in Jan. 2015. He named her Barkley (big mistake!) and took her home to meet his young wife (she loves dogs) and their 2 year old son, Judah.
Everyone loved Barkley for about 24 hours!
Wife/Momma Ashley was the first to notice that Barkley had a strong mouth drive! Judah's toys were being shredded, furniture was being destroyed, chewed up garbage and diapers were spread around the yard and house, worst of all...Barkley put some skin punctures, with her little razor-sharp teeth, into Ashley's sweet Mother! She loves dogs!
Fearing for the tender skin of baby Judah...Andy tearfully brought her back to his Mama (me). What's a Mother to do?
So Barkley is now part of our pack! Where in the world, did he get that self fulfilling name?
So Miss B will be bred to St. Poodle Rusty next year, after her testing is done.
My oldest son Cedar and wife Brettani used to have a LabraDoodle...but now their kids get plenty of dog-time at Granny O'Poodles. Yet I am still very concerned that they are "dogless" at the present. They do have chickens...at least.
Their kids help Granny O'Poodles by playing with puppies.
4 yr old Lucy has found a new friend...
My youngest daughter Willow and family have a Border collie cross.. just one. They also have pygmy goats and two cats, but that Boomer doesn't let those catz get into any mischief in the house...Looks like the catz win out! and where's Boomer?
My oldest daughter Robin and husband have a Pit Bull..just one. Gee! They used to have 4 dogs in the house...what happened? Itza puzzle to Mrs. O'Poodles!
My 2nd oldest daughter Margo and husband have a cat...and NO DAWGS! I'm worried for them...
All my kids seem totally unaffected by Multiple Poodle/Dog Syndome and appear to be normal animal lovers...except for Stormy and Richard and their girls..
OOPS! That looks like a goat!
Maybe MPS is mutating to MADS (multiple animal/dog syndrome)
I feel so comfortable when visiting their home.
Last year when I arrived to house sit for a couple of days, I found this: pictured below.
Those considerate dogs...they just wanted to make me feel right at home. Wasn't that just so sweet? They shredded the trash, and spread it all over the house, pee'd on the rug...and chewed up a few toys! Boy!
Mr. O'Poodles aka THE Mayor of O'Shannonville resides outside the city limits in his "Dog Free zone". Is he IN or OUT of the city limits in this pic?
The Mayor has many fine friends around the outskirts of the city whom he calls his COMMITTEE.
They have secret conferences with THE Mayor, in their own private "NO-Dog Zone" quarters and have elected Willy, the Mini donkey to be the secret tale-bearer and spy since he has super abilities with those long ears and can hear THE Poodles/Doodles scheming and conniving against THE Mayor and his Committee.
Blackie, the committee enforcer and 2nd in command takes his job very seriously, and is diligent at keeping those pesky Poodles away from THE Mayor's door!
The Hilariously Happy Couple!
MR. and MRS. O'Poodles
Uh Oh! check out the Mayor.....
Is MR. O'Poodles exhibiting symptoms of MPS?
Meanwhile... Mrs. O'Poodles and her beloved Poodle/Doodle Pack continue to enjoy life in O'Shannonville.
There's nothing more relaxing than taking a nap with good friends!
