Poodles of all colors...Spring is here, time for landscaping!

Sydney Dunlap, who says she wears the safety glasses not only for eye protection, but as an attempt to disguise her movie star good looks so fans don't interrupt her work when she is too busy for autographs.
It's been awhile since I have hung out with any Poodle show breeders, but back in the days when I lived in North Carolina, I did visit with some of my show friends every now and then, particularly two ladies from whom I had gotten dogs. I especially loved to visit when they had a litter of curly Standard Poodle babies. It was such fun to watch them run and play.

But there were two topics that we often discussed, which never failed to spark heated debates!  Those topics revolved around my desire to live long enough to see the Poodle Club of America change the standard to allow Poodles to be shown in more normal clips, and also that they allow all colors. Presently only solid colored dogs may compete in the show ring for AKC championships, although any color may be AKC registered and compete in performance events. Very interesting photographs and historical information about parti-colored Poodles can be found on this link of  Poodle fancier Charlene Dunlap's Canine Horizon's website:

Whoops, I'm off the topic of my article.  Calling all Poodles, of all sizes and colors...Spring is here and it is time to help your human friends get the yard in order! Hope you enjoy these photos of two of my all-time favorite Poodle friends--Sydney and Jyah Dunlap. Even though these doggies are both hard working movie stars, they still take time out from their busy schedules to help their parents in the yard occasionally.
