Wink Why Poodles have top knots

I think I have figured out why Poodles have a top knot. It hides the little devil horns. I had to take this photo, Walter looked so Angelic laying there so quiet and sweet. Five minutes later he was terrorizing the poor cat. gotta love em, I know God does!!!!

He he... I think that the horns support the halo

We spit shine Remi's daily, as he often forgets it and the horns come out.... I seem to remember my lunch a few weeks ago, and the candy, and ummm oh yes, not to mention the air mattress this weekend! Ha!

topknots are also to hide the food that falls off the table.

the other night i cut a piece of chicken sausage with my fork and it bounced into the air and disappeared. i thought a dog had grabbed it, but it was lost in seelie's topknot.

Poodles have top knots so everyone who meets your dog has an irresistable, ultra fluffy place to pet them.

My spoos top knot doesn't hide the horns to well because I use the horns to tie up her bangs
