Joe is our first standard poodle. For 20 years we have had sighthounds - IGs and whippets. My sister put the idea of a spoo in my head two years ago. So three months ago when we lost one of our two whippets, my DH and I researched the standard poodle and then decided that was the next breed for us. So we have 14 week old Joe, a brown bundle of hair, adorableness and shark teeth! I have been lurking here for a month, trying to get as much information as possible. There is a wealth of information on this website and I have learned a great deal already, yet there is so much more to learn and experience. I am so glad to be here!
