My parents have 3 poodle-y dogs. It's funny that our family ended up with this bunch because my mom used to dislike the breed. My parents adopted them all because they were in bad homes or unfortunate situations. Julibean was a puppy whose owner would leave her unattended for days. Toby's owners were moving out of the country and couldn't take him with them. And Daisy, the newest member of the family, is a likely puppy mill survivor who was found and rehabilitated by a dog rescuer before she went home with my parents. Each member of this poodle pack has a distinct personality and a ton of quirks. I have to say, I miss living in a house full of dogs. And I know I probably won't get one for myself in a long while...so it's been fun watching after them.
