I take my Poodles to Knobels' Amusement park and bushkill falls, they always cause a stir.
Magilla is 2 and Echo is 1.

Hey where's Loki? I also have an Aussie - Hoot. My standard Jackson just loves him and does anything Hoot does. Good thing Hoot is very well behaved (most of the time).

Loki my Aussie :)

Loki adopted me when I worked for a shelter. He is blind/deaf and considered a homogenous merle. He's an amazing dog, has taught me so much, he never lets obstacles get in his way, he just finds ways around obstacles in his daily life.

I keep him in a comfort clip due to his allergies. He's miserable if he's long and just chews and chews until he gets hotspots. He only has one intact ear drum, and he has several problems with his eyes (Iris Colomba, Loki has a hole or depression in the iris of one eye. The Third eyelid is curled in one eye and extended in the other eye. The eyes are to small and the muscles pull them inward so he appears to be cross-eyed).

I am starting to believe I am a HOARDER of poodles. It starts innocently enough. You buy your first one. Mine was a black female. A Year later I bought a silver male. His breeder liked me and trusted me to raise one of her parti's that needed brought into a stable home. So now I'm up to 3 in 3 years. Accidentally at 11 months he sired a litter with the black female and we kept a parti female out of that 1st litter. Then a year later, a customer didn't want a little "cockapoo type fuzzball dog" so I took him in temporarily till I could find him a real nice home I ended up keeping him and I believe he's a westie-poo. Then I saw an add at a hardware store with a white female standard needing a home because the people wanted to sell her and get money for xmas presents. So I took her. Then about a year later, another friend had one last toy poodle male puppy left and convinced me that toys are so much easier to keep than standards....so I brought HIM home. OH and my 1st orginal dog is now 20 years old...she's a shih-poo mixed with a beagle. She is incredibly healthy and vibrant. All my dogs are healthy with white teeth and busy active lives. I can't imagine life without them. I am a groomer in Western PA and I use different dogs in competitions and also in obedience classes. My daughter is a certified master FELINE groomer....I only work on dogs.

The parti in your profile picture is adorable. I'd love to have a parti one day, but that is long down the road.

Do you compete in Hershey or Intergroom? One of these days I want to compete, but I have cold feet.
