Why doodle when you can poodle...whats this fascination with poodle crossbreeds..people need educating on how wonderful poodles are!!!! There are so many misconceptions.

But a doodle is not at mongrel prices.
We get asked alot... because of my dogs phantom markings.... usually along the lines of "I know he is a poodle but what is he crossed with?"

I have never gotten the doodle question but I do get the 'Why a poodle?' question a lot. Mostly from people who have known me for years with all my big working dogs.

I have loved poodles since I was a little girl. We had a lady that lived across the street from us, to this day I remember her toy poodles. Suzy and Peter. I wish there was a way to go back in time to let Marge know how much her poodles decades ago have improved the quality of my life now that I have poodles of my very own. Maybe someday, I should get a Suzy and a Peter, too in their honor. (hm, good excuse for more poodles!)

I do get a lot of questions about my Kelpies, though. Seems a lot of people have no clue what they are. I've heard every thing from 'rat terrier' (really?!?!) to Doberman. Interesting when you consider the vast difference in size there. lol Just because they're black and tan with pricked ears does not make them dobermans.

(I could be rich, though, seems someone in Australia is crossing Kelpies with Poodles and selling the pups for $1000 each and claiming no health issues at all. hmmm I'm thinking that dog would be waaaay to smart for me to even try to live with! lol)

Default Top Ten on Animal Planet for Intelligence

Hi Ladybird,

Wow. I don't think that I'm as nice as I should be....

If anyone suggests that my registered poodle is a Labradoodle, I just say, "No, I wanted one of the top-ten smartest dogs on Animal Planet---and that is a poodle."

Am I bad?

I shave my poodles feet and face every Wednesday because I do NOT like the shaggy look at all..lol but I've been asked a few times "is that a doodle?" Or "wow she is beautiful! What kind of mix is she??" Seriously!!??? I am not nice at all, I can't help it when I say "she is a show prospect pure-bred standard poodle!" I say it with a zing! And don't hide my annoyance.lol. I invested a lot of time in researching breeders backgrounds (3 years to be exact) and money and TIME! So I feel I have earned te right to be offended when I'm asked "is that a doodle?"

I find that people in general don't really know much about dogs (the non dog people that is). I think for those types of people they're really only familiar with poodles in a continental or Miami style clip, and maybe by coat texture. I do get a lot of questions about my poodle pup, half of them know it's a poodle but think it's a mix because he's not solid in colour, the other half just ask me what kind of mix he is all together. I got him put in a lamb cut and now everyone knows he is a poodle puppy-except for those who don't believe they can be two coloured...

I get the same thing with my dark brindle cairn terrier too, people asking me if he is a westie and once someone even asked me if he was a yorkie mix.

MaryLynn, You are correct. A lot of people don't know about dogs at all. I think a lot of people hear about doodles and then just think every dog that resembles that is a doodle. Also a lot of people don't know that poodles come in "size large", LOL. They think poodles are tiny prissy dogs.
People usually know that Lily is a poodle, but most are surprised how friendly and well behaved she is (you know...because she's a poodle!)
