When I got Gryphon I had a battle with a friend of mine who not a dog person, telling me that people wouldn't be able to come over anymore etc because you know, he's a poodle and they're so nasty and bite.

Unhappy Hmmm...

Personally, I would never be offended at someone who might think Sammi was a Doodle. Doodles are popular and generally very cute, and the general public who has never seen or heard of a standard poodle would naturally conclude that she was one.

We just take it as a teachable moment if and when the situation arises. Doodles aren't the devil incarnate!!!!! They are loving and loyal canines, and they deserve love too.

=================================
I have nothing against the poor animals themselves, its not their fault , and I also have nothing against the people that adopt them from shelters (bless their hearts for giving them a better life), BUT.. I am not in favor of the "making of doodles", for many reasons, but one of them being: "you dont know what you are doing to get" which leads to abandonment of the dogs sometimes because of people being displeased with "what they got" .. It's uncertain... and in some cases a cruel marketing move to get more $ with the allegations regarding the specifics/standards of these "designer breeds". (I also dislike this term)
But I'm not an expert at all.. these are just my thoughts, at this point in time, according to personal experience, only!

Ps. Im sorry if I said anything stoopid or that didnt make sense, or misspelled something... I try hard, but english is my 2nd language... I hope I was able to put down in words what is in my head...LOL it doesnt always work out.. LOL

I don't know why people think doodles are non-shedding. I groomed one today that clogged my tub. The dog also had to stay outside most of the time because the children were allergic to her. People should do more research before getting any kind of dog breed.

When Lily was a puppy I had her face and feet fuzzy until she was over 6 months old. This was in early 2009. Since PWDs were much in the news (Bo Obama), everybody used to ask me if she was a portie, even though her tail is docked. Go figure. MaryLynn is right, non dog people don't know much about dogs, but some of them like to think they do!

I was going to say I bet many PWD owners are sick of hearing their dogs called poodles. Of course now with Bo Obama, people are more aware of the breed, but I bet it happens a lot still. I never thought of it going the other way, LOL!

I swear there is a woman that jogs with her PWD on my street, but 1. I don't want to interrupt her run, 2. I'm sure its a PWD, but what if it's a doodle? Man I'll feel stupid
