Panda has started to point!

When I throw him a ball on his walk, he runs up to it and points at it rather than pick it up or anything. It is as if he is saying here is the ball. I thought Poodles were retrievers rather than pointers?

I guess we might have to change our plans in gun-dog training ^_^

Romeo points whenever he is watching a gopher hole, it's the cutest thing. I too didn't think that poodles point, but apparently they do. ;)

Toulouse points quite a bit. He has done this since puppy hood. He is super alert when pointing and can hold it for a long time. The tail also goes up with the point. It is a lot of fun to see.

Sabrina pointed at birds when she was young. I think that if someone were to develop this skill, Poodles could be serviceable upland game dogs.

I have seen Teddy point at birds too. When he was younger, he wanted to chase them, but now he just points and stares. I've told him how rude I think that is, but he insists on doing it and makes no attempt to be discreet about it.

That's too funny! Chagall points at some squirrels and always at the huge ground hog hole in our side woods. I thought he was the only poodle on the planet to do such a thing!

Oh yes, Liberty points at the person clear down the street, at birds, but especially at squirrels, potguts, chipmunks and the like. I'll have to get a picture of it sometime, her pointing into a tree, with the squirrel scolding her like crazy. Totally cracks me up!

My Chloe is a pointer...but most of the time she picks up her hind leg! It is so funny. She points waterfowl and squirrels and her brother Louie just before she attacks him!
