The Lion

At the playground on the 4th of July, a lady had her Standard Poodle on a leash as she was watching her small grandson play.  Suddenly she saw the grandson climbing to high on the play equipment and rushed in to help him down, dropping the dog's leash in the process.  The poodle walked under one of the playground bridges and just stood there, watching his owner.  We were sitting on a picnic blanket just a few feet away watching Noah, when he came running around the corner, spotted the dog and came to a screeching halt.  He was facing us, so we saw his eyes open as round as saucers.  He stood there for just a split second looking at then dog, then came running over to us, excited and scared.  "A Lion!", he said.  We all just cracked up, so cute and funny.  Chris explained to him that it was just a dog with a haircut that made him look kind of like a lion, then he took him over to the dog's owner, told her the story and asked if Noah could pet him.  She laughingly agreed. 
Noah petted the "lion", talked to him and when he came back to where his Mommy and Bana were sitting, he told us, "I love the lion!".

Haha -- what a beautiful dog and so beautifully groomed. My flat-coated retriever looks like a fluffy bear compared to this coiffed beauty.

Now that was a really sweet story! Gotta love anything to do with dogs (especially) and little kids!

LOL Hope he doesn't try and pet a real lion!

That is a beautiful dog though. I wouldn't mind having a standard poodle. Except for paying for the doggy hair cuts!
