COOPER, my RED STANDARD POODLE
Did I need another dog? NO. Did I need another poodle? NO. But I visited this breeder one day, just for the heck of it, and there sat Cooper, dirty, long hair, un-groomed, and sad. When I got him out of his kennel, he didn't even know how to walk on a leash. He was afraid of everything. But through the dirt, I could see a gem. So, he came home with me, I bathed him, groomed him, and as you can see by his picture, he is a beautiful baby! He attended and passed his first obedience class. He needs a lot more work, but Cooper has the ability and the drive to learn, so he will be attending more classes and hopefully he, too, will earn his CGC. By the way, for those of you who are not familiar with that title, it's Canine Good Citizen. It means he knows the basic obedience commands - sit, stay, stand, wait, come, leave it, and down. He's a good boy!!
