Happy tongue out Tuesday my friends. This was taken in the Taringa train station pedestrian tunnel. I was tagged by @therorycalhoun to do the ten facts about me challenge so here I go.
1. I'm called Ralphie because my mum likes old fashion names and I'm red hence Ralphie the red toy poodle. 2. I'm 7 years old. 3. My mother really wanted a red poodle so we went to the same wonderful breeders my brothers relatives were from. My brother and I didn't share blood lines at all though . 4. My parents chose toy poodles because at the time small dogs suited our family and my parents have low tolerance to dog hair . 5. I have two human brothers , a human sister , a human sister and brother in law and a human nephew. I'm only just starting to really like my nephew . I'm very anxious so have always been very nervous and unfriendly around him. 6. I absolutely love laying around sleeping all day but I'm happy to go for a long hike or any other activity . People are always surprised to see such a tiny dog on the terrain my dad hikes but I never have any trouble. I've been doing it for a long time . 6. I eat very little. My parents were advised many years ago by their vet that dogs only need one meal a day so I only eat dinner . I do have some dry dog food in a bowl which I'll occasionally nibble on but not often . I have treats but I won't chew on things which are hard or a challenge hence my teeth need to be cleaned under anaesthetic. I'm not motivated by food at all. 7. My favourite toys are my flea , flamingo and poodle . I like to shake and thrash them. I also love my small balls . I don't like squeaky rubber toys or hard chew toys . 8. My dad is my number one although technically I'm my mothers dog. My dad was my brothers number one as well. Silly us 😉. 10. My brother Timmy was an apricot toy poodle who lived to be 18. He died when I was 2. My family still miss him . I'm going to tag some friends very randomly to play along if you wish. * *
