    I've never had one for show, and only had some Std Poodles as fosters. I just wanted to say good luck, it's something I've always wanted to do, show one that is. Grooming one as a pet is a big job so I can imagine that keeping one in a show coat would be quite the challenge. And I suppose, the color would also play a factor. White Spoos would probably be much more work.

    And as for the std poodle being structured like a dobe, I've heard that before. I remember someone commenting that a Std Poodle was like a Dobe in drags, I thought that was a hoot! lol
