Oy with the poodles already! (part 1)

It was a good mail yesterday.  Some of my poodle family arrived & they're incredibly sweet.

Papa & baby poodle are still on the way but they should be with me soon, so i'll take more photos of the whole family together when they're reunited.

I've been considering naming them after characters from Gilmore Girls because I love Gilmore Girls (so excited that the show is coming back for new 4 episodes!) & because of ''Oy with the poodles already!'' (from I Can't Get Started, season 2, episode 22).


I might name them;
Lorelai (after Lorelai Gilmore), Luke or Luc (after Luke Danes), Eustace (after Paris Gellar's middle name), Michel (after Michel Gerard, the Independance/Dragonfly Inn's concierge) & Babette (after Babette Dell, Lorelai & Rory's neighbour).  Also Babette had a garden gnome named Pierpont, which might make a good surname.

I'm not sure what I'm going to name them yet, I jotted some other ideas after I initially bought them, but seem to have misplaced it. I'm going to have to look for it before papa & baby poodle arrive, however the Gilmore Girls related names feel kind of perfect.

I think the poodle family are supposed to be apricot coloured, & Babette's cat in Gilmore Girls was named Apricot, so maybe the naming gods are conspiring & saying ''yes! go with those names!''.


  1. Aww, you poodles are so cute! I have my own blog too!
    Hopefully daddy and baby poodle will come soon, it is terrible to have to wait for something to complete your families.

    1. Hi Emily, thanks for the link to your blog! My other poodles arrived today, so I didn't have to wait much longer :)
