ARE POODLES WATER DOGS?
YES, AND APPARENTLY THEY ARE MUD DOGS TOO!
Are poodles water dogs?
Wrigley was a poodle mix.
Her mixed part must have been a breed that hated water.
Wrigley was not a water dog.
She was always very disgruntled when it rained.
Blue, who is a purebred standard poodle, seems to love the water.
We got over an inch of rain yesterday.
Today the yard is soggy.
Blue went outside, and she came back absolutely caked in mud.
She didn’t mind at all that I had to hose her down.
It was only 48 degrees outside.
But I had no choice – that mud was NOT coming into the house.
I’m not sure, but I think she was laughing the entire time.
Lesson learned – Blue stays on a leash when it’s muddy outside!
