While looking for something else, I ran across this old birth announcement card from 1960. Greeting cards have sure changed in style, haven't they?
And inside --
This came from my aunt and uncle who had no children. Instead they had two full size poodles. I think they found a very appropriate card, with their additions, to announce their new puppy, don't you?
Today, when I think of a poodle I think of the small miniature poodles that are so popular now. But my aunt and uncle had full size poodles and they are large dogs - and in the house. I remember my aunt telling the story that when their dogs got mad at them, they peed on their bed pillows! I don't think I would leave my bedroom door open in that case. I would even be tempted to get rid of the dogs, but I know how difficult it is to get rid of a fur baby.
