These are some poodles we met outside of the zoo. Apparently on my first draft I forgot to label this picture "LOOK-ALIKE!" The poodle owner taught me a thing or two about this breed while the kids cuddled and pet these well loved creatures. Lesson #1: these are STANDARD sized poodles. Standard is the only way they should breed, because it is the size they were intended to be in the first place. Next, poodles don't have fur, it's HAIR and it doesn't shed. Next, poodles have lots of different hair styles or cuts, but they take a lot of upkeep to keep them in those ways, so this particular "leg warmer" look (my label) is the preference of this particular owner. Also, poodles are great dogs to have because they are very gentle with humans. It was a crack up that they were dressed and treated like little kids.
Here's little Miss Sass-a-frass posing, quite appropriately (much to my chagrin) with plenty of Attitude!
Apparently Ian wasn't feeling that caterpiller-y.
