As an adult, I love for my friends to have dogs. I get some intermittent loving, petting, ball chasing and walking and not so much of the poop, vomit, and other medical problems. I am partial to Corgis and mutts.
I have thought very little about poodles for much of my life. I suppose that if you had asked me what a poodle looked like, the picture in my head would have looked something like this:

But at some point I became aware that not all poodles were equally groomed. Some of them just looked like regular dogs. They were all sorts of colors, different sizes and could be good working dogs as well as pets. And these regular looking poodles had a particularly cute shagginess about them.
