accidentially bumped into this forum and just had to become a member.
Me, my familiy and our dogs live in beautiful Finnmark in the northernmost part of Norway. (So maybe my english spelling isnt allway correct but i hope you can understand me anyway)
I was introdused to the poodle as breed when we got an allergic son and was looking for a dog he could live with. And i will never regret getting a poodle for my family, it is such a lovely breed.
We now have 3 wonderful poodles and one week ago we got a small baby poodleboy, he was a complete surprice for everybody, but we truly love him to pieces.
I have a homepage but unfortunatly it is only in norwegian, but you are free to look in anyway.

Welcome! My family comes from Norway. Even though my dad was born in the U.S. he was all about his heritage. I have tried to keep our Norwegian traditions alive by making Lefse and Roumegrot (sp?) every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Forgive my spelling, but I grew up on other Norwegian foods. I wish I knew how to make them! My dad had a final wish to visit Norway one more time before he passed. We had the tickets and my husband and I were to accompany him. Unfortunately he never made the trip. But it is still a dream of mine to visit someday!
Names of dogs: Spot (no longer with me) and Nero RIP Both Lab mixes

yay another skandinavisk person!! Jeg er islandsk, and thats the extent of my norwegian knowledge
I think (might be wrong) that dwarf is Toy yes!?!? the smallest size of poodle.
When all is done, upon the tomb is seen,
Not what he was, but what he should have been.
But the poor dog, in life the firmest friend,
The first to welcome, foremost to defend,
Whose honest heart is still his master’s own,
Who labors, fights, lives, breathes for him alone,
Unhonored falls, unnoticed all his worth,
Denied in heaven the soul he held on earth –
While man, vain insect! hopes to be forgiven,
And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven.
