Happiness is Having a Poodle

A few years ago when a dear friend recommended a Standard Poodle as a great pet, my initial reaction was to giggle. I mean, really, a poodle? Guys don't have poodles, do they? Wow did I have a lot to learn. Standard Poodles are great dogs. Unbelievable athletes, smart, funny, great personalities, easy to train, excellent family dogs and they LOVE to be with people as much as other dogs. Sheldon in particular bonded with me. He has become my best bud. We spend lots of time together...he comes to work with me, sits by the pool when I do my laps, and pretty much follows me wherever I go. You might recall that Sheldon came along on the road trip to Salt Lake City a few months ago too. I love dogs anyway...and Sheldon has become a great canine pal. Sometimes I think he really understands what I'm saying...he has the all-knowing look. Call me crazy, but I think I'm the lucky one to have such a great dog in my life. Happiness is having a (standard) poodle in your life.

I think our pets do understand us and the language we speak. I know one of my granddogs does. When I say something silly or slightly off-kilter (using humor), she cocks her head in such a way to say, "Really?"

I completely agree! I found your blog via Pinterest and I have a black standard poodle as well. I completely fell in love with the breed; they are truly wonderful dogs and they DO understand :) All by best!
