I have been lurking for a couple of months now but thought I would come out of hiding. You all have such great knowledge about poodles, so I'm hoping I can get some help and info as I move forward to getting my first dog as a grown-up!
Just to give you a bit of info, I live in Toronto, Canada. I grew up with and love Portugese Water Dogs (my parents still have two that you can see in my profile) but now that I'm on my own and living in a condo I'm looking for a smaller breed, and the mini poodle seems to fit the bill. My dog will primarily live with me and be my companion, but will also join my mom in agility and some of the other dog sports she does. We may even show in UKC, just for fun! So I will start another thread with some of my questions but just wanted to say hi here.
