Yesterday's FWOTD: poodle

From Wikipedia:

The Poodle is a breed of dog, and is regarded as one of the most intelligent breeds of dog.[1] The poodle breed is found in small, medium, and large sizes, and in many coat colors. Originally bred as a type of water dog, the poodle is skillful in many dog sports, including agility, obedience, tracking, and even herding. Poodles are elegant in the conformation ring, having taken top honors in many shows, including Best in Show (BIS) at the Westminster Kennel Club show in 2002 and BIS at the World Dog Show in 2007.

Poodles can actually be cute -- and they're evidently very smart dogs -- but the clipped ones are ridiculous looking (see photo above).

  1. I never cared for Poodles until I met Corky. He is thirteen now and has lost his hearing, so he is learning both sign language and lip reading. SMART is right!
    He wears a puppy cut.
