Here in Europe is almost "in moda" to have this combination.My friend has one miniature poodle and one small italian greyhound-they are so great couple:-) The main thing is same elegance,same playfull caracter but also one dog in the house without grooming:-)

It definitely eases the load having one dog that doesn't require grooming. Don't be like me and have a bunch of animals that require regular grooming (even my hairless cats) - I don't have a day off sometimes. After I'm done grooming other people's dogs, I groom mine in my off days. I am also thinking about getting another cat... a Persian - another breed that requires regular grooming lol.

You just might be onto something...

We were between getting a poodle and adopting a greyhound, and while I am not sure if I would want to own anything else buy a poodle in the future greyhounds and dobermans are breeds still on the list.

They require baths! Either weekly or every other week. I've finally found the shampoos that doesn't completely strip the oils from their skin so that I can bathe them every 3-4 weeks (4 weeks is pushing it - at that point they stink and are SO grimy). They produce more oils and wax then normal cats.
Their ears get very waxy, and for me, I also clearn around their nail beds - a lot of dirt & grime gets stuck around their nails. When I clean them, it smells like poop lol. They also have wrinkles and folds to the skin where the dirt can settle. Thanks goodness there's no blowdrying involved, but if I don't keep up with the baths, they can get blackheads/whiteheads and leave every fabric they touch brown. My husband is allergic to cats and I can tell when I'm at the 4 week mark because my husband's skin and eyes will get red.

Rex breeds are SUPER oily/waxy. My devon Rex (not hairless, but very little of it) required bathing once every 2-3 weeks, and he had the grossest ears I have ever seen.

I trimmed his nails often, too.

I really do miss that cat sometimes. I have never been a cat person, but there is something about that breed that is pretty enchanting.

It is amazing the similarity they must have come down from the same breeding line as everytime my girl is wet she is a whippett to a 'T' and the running style in full flight etc.

Did you know that portugese water dogs and poodles came from same lineage.

so now you have set me a task to research and find out which line both poodle and whippett came from way back

So so frustrating to have typed in all my research findings only to be told oh logged out and when i log back in bingo all gone grrrrrrrr

Anyways to cut a long explanation short Greyhounds are known as primal breed /saluki / afghans and similar all descendent from these, Poodle -> standard size possibly comes from greyhound x with Barbet which also was resulting PWD.

check out these sights and some of the pics to support ->
Greyhound Dog
History of the Greyhound Dog Breed
History of the Italian Greyhound
Poodle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Portuguese Water Dog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saluki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbet_(dog)

If you look at the photo's of the very early poodle in the link you can see the similarity between the PWD +barbet
so my humble guess would be there is definately a genetic connection between all these hunting dogs.

I would LOVE to have a dobe...Ralph gets a long with every Doberman we've ever met, they run and bounce together. Unfortunately, my husband is allergic to dogs, and they shed too much to keep things under control.

Too bad! Dobes are another breed you don't see very often any more, and they're so pretty. So let's see what non-shedding (kind of, you know what I mean) dogs I can think of, either from personal experience or from talking to other people; Havanese, Wheatens, Airedales, Wirehaired Fox Terrier, Greyhound, Bedlington Terrier, Irish Water Spaniel, Basenji, Kerry Blue Terrier, our own beloved Poodles, and Bichons. There are others (Barbers? PWDs? But I'm not sure about them) I can personally vouch for the Bedlington, they are awesome dogs! They do have coats to maintain but they're not as demanding as poodles for grooming, and they have whippet in their lineage so you should see them run! My little Bedlington used to run so fast in big circles around me, her ribs would almost touch the ground on the corners. They'd give Ralph some good exercise! It's fun to daydream about
