When he and his wife purchased the first dog, they bought her brother along with her. After having the two dogs for a few years, the brother dog got sick and passed away. They thought of buying another one but the breeder didn't have any and they didn't know anyone else that bred toy poodles in the area. The female poodle they have, doesn't bark. She can if she wants to, there is nothing wrong with her, but she doesn't bark.
On Christmas Eve years ago the man and his wife were woken up by a dog barking. Of course they woke up and immediately went to their dog who was awake but not barking. The man got out of bed to find out where this barking was coming from. He opened the front door and there was this poodle dog standing in front of his door. The dog was cold, covered with snow, so he let it in. Poor dog was so cold and covered with mud, they gave it a warm bath, fed it and kept it in separate room from their other dog. They couldn't get over how this new dog and their dog looked so much alike.
The two dogs tried to see each other. Next morning the owners called the vet and left a message on her answering machine to make an appointment the day after Christmas, but the vet got the call on Christmas morning. She said her family wasn't coming until the afternoon and if they wanted to bring the dog in, she would see it on Christmas Day. So off they went to the vet.
The dog got a doggie physical and was in great condition. She gave it all it's shots so the two dogs could be together. The new owners named the dog Christmas because they found him on Christmas Eve, but everyone calls him Chris for short.
The two dogs after looking each other over became fast friends. Day after Christmas, the owners put an add in the paper and asked around the area to see if they could find the previous owner. They had people call that said they would buy the dog or take the dog, but no one claimed it as their dog. Of course the people had no plans on selling or giving it away to anyone but it's owner. No one claimed the dog, so he has become a member of their household. That was over eight years ago. The owner laughed and said he wished the dog could talk and tell of his life before they got him. They believe he is a special dog because he came on Christmas Eve.
