(UPI) What this nation apparent!; needs: an Association for thi Advancement of S u r v i v a Techniques with Poodle Pet (AASTPP). The initials aren't easy t sound--but that's almost po-] etic justice. | Judging from laments of poodle owners, scribbled after reading a column relating poodle antics, survival of a sane family tie with poodles taxes humanity as even Uncle Sam can't. One reader has a poodle ·who o n l y responds to the "come" command out of doors when it is accompanied by the sound of a car door opening. The same mbced-up poodle only obeys the "comeTM command indoors when it's accompanied by the sound of the refrigerator door opening. THE PRIZE for complicated troubles with a poodle pet goes to C L Douglas, managing editor of The Fort Worth Press in Fort Worth, Tex The ban of fluff causing turmoil in the Douglas household is named Bijou. "Before she came to us 15 months ago we had a well ordered household which included a ladylike white and tan cocker spaniel and a gi Fantic cat of many hues named Scat -- both housebroken and altogether man nerly," Douglas wrote. -But now. under the influ cnce of this poodle juvenile delinquent, all this has been changed into chaos." For one thing. Bijou has become arbiter of the cuisine. Her only food these past 15 months: meat taken from chicken neck. She terns down the drumsticks and other nice pickin's. NATURALLY, she won't cat from a bowl on the floor. She gets indigestion or goes on a hunger strike unless she can sit on a Up and be hand- fed And, naturally, she re-; quires a bib! The animaTs fastidiousness has spread to th« cocker and the feline. The cat now wants| only braunschweiger. The' cocker wants just hamburger. The.poodle, in effect, has forced the family into the restaurant business. Douglas puts out $29.95 for cEppers. But his first experience ia shearing the poodle turned into bedlam. To help make a second dipping more peaceful, he obtained canine tranquilizeri from the dog doctor. · * · · "I FAILED to read the leg end on the bottle which warned that the tablets 'might tend to make a temporary change in animals' personalities and cause them to become viciousV* he said. "Wen, after my little poodle came out of her lethargy she tried to chew off the cocker's ean and then went after the cat- It's reached the point where Douglas and his wife eras take separate nations. One or the other must be on haiu at an times to minister to the whims of the poodle and the'whims she has communicated to the other two animals. "We have thought of selling Bijou ia the interest of a peaceful state of mind, bet of course, we know we could never do that "Home just wouldn't be the same without her."
