    Anyone else with a Poodle?

    The first dog I ever had was a black miniature, Lady. When she died, I had another black miniature bitch, Robbie - a neighbour introduced me to the world of Obedience Training, and Robbie excelled. Except when she did heelwork on her hind legs.

    Later I had Max, a huge black Standard, a great big softie.

    Now I have Pepe - a parti-coloured Standard. Because of his markings, few people recognize him as a Poodle - I am sure some people go home and tell their family that they have met some poor deluded woman who thinks she's got a poodle!

    My sister in law had a black Poodle when she was growing up, he was her best friend.

    I met him a few times (when I was younger) and I was always a little scared of him as he kept jumping up to say hello and was a bit too clever for his own good - I was never sure what he'd do next :lol:

    One of the dogs we meet on our walks is an apricot bitch - very pale, though, - almost more like a cream.

    It's lovely to see them play together - and funnily enough they both have the knack of tipping my cocker spaniel right over - no other dog has ever done it. Must be a poodle thing!

    I used to do a lot of Obedience Training with my miniature - I wish I'd done agility with her.

    I know someone who knows one of Ricky's co-owners. She has had the pleasure of meeting Ricky and says he is a fabulous dog and has a lovely life. However, she seemed to think he might be going to America. I'll have to try and find out more.

    I've
    I've found all the poodles I've had very intelligent and easy to train - and such fun too!
