I end up at this forum so often because I'm always Googling information on poodles and this is where I'm led! There are so many knowledgeable people!
I have 2 poodles. Nigel is a 10 year old small black miniature (technically, because he's 11 inches at the shoulder) and Raleigh who is a 5 month old (and 1 week) sable phantom standard.
Even though I've had Nigel since he was 4 months old, having Raleigh is like starting over again. I'm learning all about standards and what to expect.
