What do you think of when you hear the word “poodle?”
I immediately think of the stupid show-dog haircut.
Foo-foo, puff-balls, and bad dye jobs.
And I laugh, remembering the movie Best In Show.
But not all poodles are show dogs.
Think of the stupid-haircut-types as The Kardashians.
And the non-stupid-haircut-types as the rest of us.
We’re adopting a standard poodle.
She’ll come home to us next week.
We’re rescuing her from an abusive situation.
We’re also rescuing her from a very bad haircut.
She will look like the dogs in these pictures soon enough.
