It is amazing what a poodle can do to you! I'm sitting here at the computer on a lazy Saturday anxiously awaiting the confirmation that I will finally be an owner of my very first standard poodle. A handsome 10 year old male - I haven't met him, but loved him the minute I saw his photo. I will be the last home for this fine fellow and have already started to plan the best retirement for him imaginable!!! When younger, my family had always owned miniature or toy poodles but somehow I had always thought I'd never be able to own a standard. So today is going to be the day. Keep your fingers and paws crossed!!!!
