Agreed!!!! AND the info was actually backwards... it is shown to be much more likely that the bichon was developed from poodles/maltese, etc.....the poodle is much older...
Actually the Bichon, Havanese, Bolognse and Maltese are descendant from the Barbet which was used in the making of Poodles (we think) but other then that they are no more related then a Lab is to a Poodle.

Yeah - sissy dogs rulz dude!

If someone wants a dog with poodle like qualities but doesn't want to be seen with a "sissy" dog, first they need to find out why they are so unsure of their masculinity and then get themselves a real dog, a standard poodle, and even clip it lik a retreaver if they feel the need.
Any guy that grew up with Standard Poodles knows that they are absolutely the furthest thing from a sissy dog. Yes, the over emphasis on 'canine topiary' by the show community does not take anything away from these dogs are all about(judges should remember that coat is only 10% of the breed standards weighting for AKC conformation). For me at least, the relatively low popularity of these 'sissy dogs' helps to reduce(but unfortunately not eliminate) the incidence of for profit only breeding. Quite frankly, I'm thankful for the 'sissy dog' outlook on these wonderful dogs . . .
