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)
