Poodles can be polarizing....people either love them or hate the thought of them. I'm proud to be a Poodle lover, and so is my husband, one of the few general contractors I know who is not ashamed to ride around with a Poodle sitt ing beside him in his pickup truck! REAL MEN ARE NOT AFRAID TO LOVE POODLES. No, he didn't start out that way-- I remember our first Standard Poodle, back in 1989, was kept in a Portuguese Water Dog style haircut for several months. Rick did not want to be seen in the neighborhood walking a "sissy Poodle". So he walked a big brown curly dog instead!
I saw a Far Side cartoon a couple of decades ago that cracked me up . It showed two "regular dogs" on a sidewalk, watching a Poodle in a froo-froo haircut walking with its owner. One dog looked at the other and said something like "I don't know, but I think she may be a member of a weird religious cult". Wonder if it is not just people who don't consider Poodles "real dogs" but perhaps dogs feel the same way?
So many depressing dog rescue situations recently that I decided today's post would just be light, and what could be lighter than looking at Poodles having fun? Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit, Poodles are unique!
Love to read your take on Poodles---why you love them or if, heaven forbid, you don't, tell the world why!
REMEMBER - A REAL MAN IS NOT AFRAID TO LOVE A POODLE!
Thanks to the real man, Rick Miles (Poodle photographer extraordinaire) for this photo. Nope, not Rick the hubby, but Rick the Poodle man. NEWS FLASH - Rick just wrote to tell me that the Poodles in above photo are Sterling (in front) who belongs to Poodle lover Judy Cheron, and Judy Kessler's Monte in pursuit. Aren't they lovely?
Feel free to post a Poodle comment!
