My family thinks Im nuts,lol.I have always been a Mastiff,Rottie,Shepherd,type owner and they think I have went off the deep end wanting a Standard Poodle =)
My husband LOVES the standards (and he wholeheartedly agreed to the continental clip on our red!!) He loves to walk the girls when they're freshly groomed and fluffed (he loves to walk them anytime, but he's especially proud of them when they look the most "fancy" :lol...I think it's just a macho thing with the poodle,lol.
That sounds so perfect!!She's happy if she's where I am, whether it's in the mountains, visiting friends, or laying in a hospital bed next to a sick child. She adapts to different situations very well and goes from athletic and energetic to quiet, calm and snuggly quickly, depending on the situation and what's expected of her.
