Does anyone have this, it's published by Dog Fancy? I have the Maltese issue and I found the Poodle one on Ebay and ordered it. I bought the one w/ the toy Poodle in a pet clip, but there's another that says it was publish the same year (2006) w/ a standard in show clip. Are they the same exact book or is there a difference (besides the cover)?

I'm not a big fan of Dog Fancy Magazine but I do like my Maltese book/magazine. It's not as "fluffy" as their monthly magazine or breed profiles and I don't remember any breeder ads.

I have two of these magazines but I believe they are different years. Honestly they don't change too much in these magazines

I have the one with the red toy poodle and the white show dog if I find them I will let you know for sure.

I'd appreciate it, not that it's urgent. The only place I know of that sells them is Petsmart and I didn't even see one of the Poodle issues last time I was there.

My favorite article, in the Malt issue, is the interview w/ 4 different top breeders. It's too bad more people aren't listening to their views, there seem to be more and more teeny, tiny Malts w/ "baby doll faces" and temperment isn't as much of a priority as it should be.

I ended up getting the one w/ the white Spoo on the cover. (The seller said they were the same and even sent a free gift, which was fine w/ me.) I have to say, I don't like the Poodle issue as much as the Maltese issue. The Poodle issue is more generic, where the Maltese issue is very breed specific. There is no article on the top Poodle kennels or anything like that. It's also very anti-parti, which bugged me quite a bit, considering who publishes the book/magazine. (Dogfancy has a long track record of printing ads for the sleeziest of breeders, including those that breed oversized, undersized and off color dogs. They've even allowed ads from obvious puppymills, dogfighters and online puppy brokers.)
