My daughter wants a poodle...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by unbasslichkeit, Mar 31, 2006.


  1. ..and I am okay with that idea, with the following conditions:

    1. It must be a male;

    2. It must be either black or grey so the dirt doesn't show as much; and

    3. He must be named either 'Serge' or 'Gainsbourg'. Review the link below to see why this is important:

    My son asked for a hamster when he was younger. I gave him the same reply my dad gave me when I asked for an iguana..

    Standard Poodles are great dogs, miniatures are another story.

    I vote for Serge! I never watched 6 Feet Under, but I loved the Serge character in Beverly Hills Cop. If that guy had been a dog, he'd have been a poodle.

    Another rule...No Sissy Poodle Haircuts or Nail Painting. I used to have a poodle, in jr hi. She was a toy size, grey, and really cute. Then my mom took her to the beauty shop, and they made her look all...poofy, with that weird haircut. Never again! People laughed at her and me both!

    Why? Is Marcia's music poodle-y to you?

    I think she's ok. The whole NOLA piano thing gets old, though.

  12. Why in the name of 12 kinds of quick-dry cement would you let her get a poodle? A Rottweiler, THAT'S what she needs.:D

    Rock on

  13. +1 I totally agree. My best friend has had a couple of standards. As long as you give them a normal haircut - I can't stand the whole topiary style thing.

    If you are not looking for a show dog, IMO the secret is to get a "pet quality" standard poodle from a top breeder - much cheaper than a show quality animal but you get the advantage of a bloodline with a known temperment. The animals from certain breeders bloodlines will have particular reputations WRT temperment and health issues. Ask many poodle people and you will get a feel for who is good for your needs.

    For example, my friend has had two pet quality dogs from the well known breeder Wendell Sammet over the years. Both dogs have been smart, sociable, affectionate, trainable, great with children, playful with just a small hint of mischef and also quite handsome. Very nice pets/family members. We were just out walking and playing in the woods yesterday.

    peace,

  14. Dang..the whole purpose of this post was to get folks to see the link above, which is to one of the funniest talk show moments ever. My daughter really does want a poodle, but I doubt she'd let me name it Gainsbourg. I know my wife wouldn't.

    Tried looking at the clip... three times! No luck. Got to see the commercials each time, but not the clip... :meh:

    We have a standard poodle, and we call him Clyde. He's black. Second-best dog with which I've ever been associated... very smart and attentive. The best dog I ever had was some 28 years ago... a border collie, which I called Leroy... damn dog was so smart... he did my calculus homework for me... :D
     
  20. +1 My standard is incredibly smart and is the sweetest dog I've ever met.
