The hunt continues

The dog hunt continuities. Jon doesn't understand my new obsession about finding a dog. I tried to explain it in his terms, it is like shopping for a new car. Finding the perfect kind is half the fun.

I love the way the Great Pyrenees looks. It is big fluffy, white and weighs about 100 lbs. Yea, know that is a lot of dog. I love big dogs though. I just want to hug them. They are so pretty but apparently they shed a ton which is the major draw back.

When I was reading about different breeds personalities I was surprised by the one that caught my attention...the poodle???? Weird, I know. I think they are ugly but they don't shed, don't smell, don't drool, great with other animals, very smart....the list goes on and on. "These dogs are highly intelligent and one of the most trainable breeds" But they are ugly.

What to do...

ok, at first i thought it was a typo, but now i see you mispelled the word "breed" more than once. "bread" is a wheat based product made from flour. "breed" denotes ancestry.

I do not think poodles are ugly; beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I agree their nose is a bit pointed, but at least they have a nose, unlike boxers (although I do like boxers too). One of the beautiful aspects of poodles (the standards breed anyway) is their presence and elegance which comes in part from their extreme intelligence. Good luck in dog shopping (if not I have two you can borrow from time to time. Love, your mom. TY
