Hi and welcome, Tess's mom (since I don't know your name, but then I don't always sign my posts either)! Since you have a standard, she probably doesn't have to jump up to move forward in the snow like my Bichon with my snowed-in dad in Chicagoland! But she loves chasing deer! Cleo my senior miniature poodle, however, avoids getting her fur wet if possible.

And thanks, Valerowe for the Ian Dunbar site. I downloaded the book (though my poodle's already trained me) and am now downloading his MP3s about canine topics.

emoticon to one of the best Sparks groups around! You get to lose weight AND learn more about how to have fun with your poodle. We got our first after a man at an art festival, who had a beautiful silver standard told us "Stop THINKING about getting a Standard Poodle... go GET one!" Both of ours are rescues, and our second was 6 mo. old when we got him, and man, was he a pistol! (Still is, in fact!) This month happens to be "No Shelter Dogs" Month, and to celebrate, world renowned trainer Ian Dunbar is offering his puppy training book FREE online! You can download it at http://www.dogstardaily.com/training/after
-you-get-your-puppy. I breezed through it briefly and found several anecdotes I've never heard before, so it's a good read for the new handler; and also as a brush-up for the long-timer...especially if you're thinking about a new pup. Face it, when it comes to pups, our forgiveness is far reaching, and we tend to remember the good stuff, and not the trials and tribulations. Good luck with your new pooch! emoticon

Welcome. We're having our share of snow this year too, but no where near the amount that you're having. We had 2 inches on the ground yesterday morning but it's already melted. We're supposed to get more mid next week, but I'm hoping the weather report will change by then.

Welcome! Glad it's your snow and not mine LOL In Alabama, snow is almost unheard of and if we get half an inch, we are paralyzed.

It looks beautiful where you live! I love snow, but we don't get much here, just the cold and the wind every now and again, lol. Wow, 23 inches of snow with more on the way...that's alot!!! I'm from Colorado originally, so I'm used to the white stuff, but haven't been around it in a long time.

Great to hear of all. On the lead Tess is great. Unless there is a cat. She loves cats. Off the lead, she is a tease and thinks everything is a game. She loves the snow. And how can it be 7 degrees and snowing again outside. We have 23 inches of snow and more on the way. Uck!

I am so glad there is a poodle team. Have had a pug for the past 13 years and after he passed I changed breeds. Don't really know why I went to a standard poodle. She is great and now 6 months old. Don't know who has who trained.
