My gift to me



Wishing everyone a marvelous holiday, no matter what your belief.

Here are some pictures of the gift I gave myself.

He's become my personal shredder

His name is Captain Nemo, he’s five months old, a miniature poodle, and he promises to keep me walking every day and to help me think up some new mysteries (or maybe a romance).

  1. Captain Nemo? I like it! Almost as good as Mister Fancypants. I’m saving that one for a future pet. Have a wonderful holiday!

      If he had been a she I this Miss Fancypants would have been a good name, just Fancy for short. We’re hoping we can take this boy on the sailboat. Can you imagine him on the bow of a boat with a sailor’s cap on?

    reminds me of your mother’ Fifi she had and loved.

    • Maris Soule says:

      I thought of that, too, Janice. Mom’s was white. I wasn’t fussy about the color, but I sure hope this little guy calms down and is as sweet as Mom’s was.

    Congrats on your newest family member. I love having little feet running around the house! I wish you and Captain Nemo all the best!

  5. Diane Burton says:

    He really is cute! Merry Christmas, Maris.

  6. Lucy Kubash says:

    Glad you gifted yourself with your new puppy. What a cute little guy. Merry Christmas to all!

  7. He certainly seems up to the tasks you’ve given him. ‘Walking – no problem.’ ‘Stories ideas – I’m on it!’ Merry Christmas and congratulations to both of you!

    Love your gift and so happy for all 3 of you.

    We had a poodle when the kids were growing up and I still refer to all dogs as Poodsl We also had a fun poster–long gone–announcing Poodles are People, and ours surely was. Bottons always sat on chairs: near the dinner table when we were eating, in the Vet’s office waiting for an appointment, and everywhere else there were chairs.

    Have fun making happy memories.

    Happy New Year,
