A BABY CALF WAS JUST BORN IN THE SPRING OF 2011. SHE IS A GIRL AND HER NAME IS ROSE PETAL. SHE IS AS PINK AND CUTE AS THEY COME! TWO MORE BABIES WERE BORN THREE DAYS APART-2012. THEY ARE PLAY MATES FOR ONE ANOTHER!! SOOOOO CUTE TO SEE THEM RUN AROUND WITH EACH OTHER!!

DARLENE STARTED OUT EARLY AS ALWAYS WANTING TO WORK AND MAKE MONEY. SHE STARTED HER OWN BABYSITTING BUSINESS WHEN SHE WAS 9 AND WEEDING BUSINESS WHEN SHE WAS FOURTEEN. SHE THEN WENT TO RETAIL BUSINESS WITH MR. DONUTS AND CLOVER DEPARTMENT STORES.
SHE WORKED TWO JOBS ONE AT GOODWILL AND ANOTHER AT RETAIL DEPARTMENT BURDINES ON NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS.

DARLENE HAS BEEN IN RETAIL FOR OVER 42 YEARS WORKING IN ANTIQUE SHOPS AND CONSIGNMENT SHOPS AND HER OWN SHOP PHILPOT'S COUNTRY COTTAGE. SHE HAS BEEN A BOUTIQUE STORE MANGER AND A .99 CENT STORE MANAGER AND RECYCLING SALVAGE MANAGER FOR GOODWILL FOR TEN YEARS AND WORKED FOR THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT OF GULFSTREAM. GOODWILL, INDUSTRIES AS AN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT.

SHE WORKED FOR OTHER RETAIL STORES AS AN ASSISTANT MANAGER FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND WENT ON TO OPEN THEPINKPOODLE2008. THEN SHE GOT SICK AND HAD TO RECOUPERATE AND BECOME STRONG. WHICH SHE DID. SHE IS A SURVIVOR.

HER LOVE HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN RETAIL SALES AND ANTIQUES, VERY PRETTY AND ELEGANT HOME DECOR.

HER PINK POODLE LOVE STARTED WITH HER MOTHER WHO BOUGHT A VERY LARGE STUFFED ANIMAL FOR HER SISTER GAYLE. IT WAS A VERY LARGE BLACK POODLE FOR MY SISTER (IT WAS BIGGER THAN US AT THE TIME) FOR CHRISTMAS - WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN. OH WHAT A SURPRISE!!

WELL I GUESS WHEN I SAW IT AND I DID NOT GET ONE I WAS SAD - MY MOTHER REALIZED THAT AND ON MY BIRTHDAY THERE WAS A VERY BIG PINK STUFFED ANIMAL DOG POODLE. THIS PINK POODLE WAS UP TO MY CHEST AND I WAS ABOUT THREE OR FOUR YEARS YOUNG. MY BROTHER AT THE TIME HAD PET NAMES FOR ALL OF US AND HE NAMED ME NEUGY-FROGGIE. WHO KNEW?

WELL MY PINK POODLE'S NAME BECAME THE SAME. I LOVED HER SOOOOO MUCH. SORRY TO SAY THAT I DO NOT HAVE HER ANYMORE BUT, HAVE MORE THAN MADE UP FOR IT WITH ALL OUR ANIMALS.

WE ARE A TRUE ANIMAL LOVING FAMILY THAT IS FOR SURE. WITH MY LOVE FOR PINK AND PASTEL COLORS AND ANIMALS IT WAS APPROPRIATE TO BECOME THEPINKPOODLE2008.

IN MY SHOP YOU WILL FIND DISTINCT UNIQUE ANTIQUES, VINTAGE OR VINTAGE INSPIRED, ELEGANT HOME DECOR, CLASSIC WONDERFUL AND FUN ITEMS FOR SALE. THEY WILL BE DISPLAYED IN FUN WAYS TO GIVE YOU IDEAS ON JUST WHAT YOU CAN TRY AND DO. ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE ASK.
