The story goes like this..........my husband and I had not had a dog for 5 years and I told my husband I was ready to bring one into our family, he said, "Fine, what kind are you getting?" I responded with a definite answer of a Standard Poodle. "What? Are you sure that's what you want?" in shock! I said "Yes!" "Ok....." he said.......Now he is becoming one of the biggest Standard Poodle advocates!! Stella has brought so much joy into our lives!!...And the story continues two years later when my husband says he wants a poodle of his own! He chose a beautiful Sable and named him "Shining Knights Romeo".
