I thought I would share this fun Video Tribute To Poodles, which l saw on youtube. The music is a touch too heavy for my taste but it’s a great video slide show featuring all different kinds of poodles, big, small, medium and in just about every color.
Poodles are an incredible breed, and, although they originated in Germany, they are the national dog of France. They are a very popular breed all around the world, especially in the United States, where I live. Poodles have been around for centuries and have long been a favorite breed of dogs in much of Europe, where it was the principal pet dog of Spain during the 18th century.
Poodles are very intelligent and are eager to please. They have been known for their agility and their ability to be trained. Poodles have won awards at many of the dog shows including “Best in Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show both in 1991 and 2002, and at the World Dog Show in 2007 and 2010.

Here is what wikipedia had to say about the Poodle and their temperament overall.
Of note is this breed’s keen sense for instinctive behavior. In particular, marking and hunting drives are more readily observable than in most other breeds. Even Toys will point birds. Classified as highly energetic, Poodles can also get bored fairly easily, and have been known to get creative about finding mischief. Poodles like to be in the center of things and are easily trained to do astonishing tricks involving both brains and agility. They have performed in circuses for centuries, beginning in Europe, and have been part of the Ringling Circus in its various forms from its inception. The Grimaldis, the famous British clowns Kenneth and Audrey Austin, “developed a stronger circus act” with a clever Poodle named ‘Twinkle,’ the success of which allowed them to continue performing even as octogenarians.”
