Hi, i am new to your forum and new to having my very own poodle! Having been a groomer for about 30 years i have known and loved a lot of poodles but not until now have I had one myself. I was busy showing my Bearded Collies and Pekingese I had always said I would someday have a standard poodle and the day has come! Unfortunately it came through the loss of my rescue Greyhound , Draco... but little "Hoolie" is helping me get through that loss and we are getting ready to start training... I havent had a puppy in more years than I can say so this is a rreal experience for me LOL! :fingers-crossed: Hope we get through it ! Haha!
