This is reason #5,456 why we don't have a dog. I think poodles are smart, and they don't shed. Big pluses in my book. My darling husband is afraid I would do this to a poodle if we ever had one...he's right. Come on though, what's a poodle with out a little pouf? Unfortunately the standard white poodle eye goo is a deal breaker for me...even if Scott were to let me emasculate FIFI.
