Ive got many impressive stories about how smart my poodles have been with their antics but I have one story in particular that only a poodle owner would believe, its about how Max my previous toy poo learned to use the telephone to call me. Sounds unbelievable right but after I explain you will understand and this got me to thinking that this forum must have lots of amazing stories involving your poodles so I'm hoping you will read Max's story and be inspired to post/share one of your stories for us all to enjoy??.
Max's Story: How a black toy poodle learned to use the telephone
My mother bought a little Black toy poo (4years after loosing her last) who she called Max who wanted to be a mans man at heart and fell in love with me even though I did not live with my mum at the time, the little guy would wait behind the front door for me hoping that I would turn up, it was heart breaking for me to think he was waiting for me so I decided I had to drive to visit him with a 1hr drive from the city after work just to visit him before driving back. Eventually I moved in with my mum to be with Max but I still had to go to work and Max would be back behind the front door again, so my mother would call me using the home cordless telephone and I would talk to him for a few minutes which would cheer him up. Then one day just after my mother and I had left the house, leaving Max behind, I got a call to my iPhone and the number showed it was coming from the house which was very odd!. I answered and to my surprise it was Max snuffling down the line, had jumped on the table, grabbed the cordless telephone, put it on the floor and using his nose randomly hit the buttons and had managed to hit redial which put him through to my mobile, Amazing! and in our happilly surprised state we went back in to see Max and put the phone back, so I suppose Max was rewarded too. Over the years I got 3 calls from Max and my mother got 2 maybe and not all of them were just as we left, sometimes I was at my desk at work, Max would only call when he was on his own. So even though Max had not learned to dial a UK mobile number he had actually learned to use the telephone for its intended purpose to talk to me, which is amazing imo but please note it was Max's desperation to be with me that my mother nurtured, letting him listen to me over the telephone, so please don't think I'm some sort of Dr DoLittle or Cesar Melan LOL
I expect this forum to be full of such stories and id love to hear them. This is not a competition about how smart your pooch is either, any interesting stories about your dogs cleaver antics will be greatly appreciated I'm sure. Please post up your poodle stories???

Max wanted to be mans man, here he is hanging out while we modify my friends bike. Max turned out so cute but I couldn't use him to meet girls, I'm sorry to say he just didn't particularly like human girls, such a shame because girls loved him.
Perhaps that was why he took to me over my mother even though he only met me for a short time at first. Its a mystery to me how or why poodles choose who to bond with and once they have made that commitment there's no changing it as far as I'm aware.
