I was so glad to find this forum. I have two standard poodles, Louie who is 2 soon to be 3 and Chloe who is 1. They are brother and sister. We just love, love, love them! They go with us to work every day (great supervisors) and most every other place we go. They LOVE BALL and playing and retrieving in the water. Their personalities are quite different but they are both lovers and lickers! I am hoping to learn a lot more about the breed from this forum. Thanks for all of the information that you all provide.
