Hello everyone. Well suddenly, I find myself with a poodle. I'm a 56 yr old guy and I havent had a dog since I was a kid. A good friend was taking him to the pound cause he couldn't get along with her other dogs. I told her to bring him to my house. There are so many questions about dog ownership in general. And is there anything in particular I need to know about poodles? This is a toy poodle...cute little guy who loves to play...3 yrs old, pretty hyper. He seems to be spring loaded...jumps straight up pretty high. Pretty funny to watch. Is this a common poodle trait? Well, I'll check in later. So much to know about, like shots, baths, food etc.....Oh, his name is spongee. He is my spongebud. So that is what Im calling myself here.
