    LOL Dan (and I have missed you and Gunner and Daisy and hmmm umm the other one....)

    Maybe they should be.. but none of the nice ones I meet look like dobes underneath, they don't jump nor move like one either.

    Hmm, now that you mention it.... There's a standard poodle in my agility class who runs and jumps just like a dobe, kinda built like one too. How interesting! No wonder I'm in love with that dog. :)

    Welcome back, Dan!

    Lol and I've liked sophies it looks a little more poodle to me. I love standard poodles. Is she hard to groom? That's the only thing about poodles that makes me kinda nervous

    I have heard many people (esp doberman people) say how close dobermans and poodles are in look and alot in temperament too. Maybe thats why i absolutely Love both breeds! It is very interesting for me to hear how others view poodles as stand-offish and aloof when out. I could very much see it with some. They dont have that lab friendly attitude, but thats what i like. Riley is a therapy dog and extreamly friendly. He just wont be all in your face about it though.

    Yeah, he looked like a Teddy Bear.. LOL

    I should say, we don't know 100% for sure that he is a doodle, he is a rescue whose Dam was found hungry and stray while pregnant....

    But, not much doubt really!!!!

    The lady who rescued his Mom was not sure what she would be getting....

    The last shaved pic of Foster makes me think Saluki (just the cut).

    I don't see why people have so many problems with poodles either... that they need to be "fixed" my mixing other breeds with them.

    I guess just different strokes for different folks.

    I was attacked when I was 6 by a big, black standard poodle and I've yet to see a poodle and not get nervous around them. YES it is my hang up, I admit.

    Other then that, they're pretty dogs and I can see why people enjoy them. My mom loves poodles, but wouldn't want to keep one in show coat.

    I don't think any breed is "perfect," and I don't think that people make new breeds in order to "fix" old breeds. But if your purpose of breeding labradoodles is to make a "non shedding dog with a lab temperment," isn't it better to mix breeds rather than just breeding poodles to have non-poodle temperments?
