First of all, let me introduce myself. I am 68 years old and my husband is 71 and a retired attorney. He was the Assistant US Attorney for the western district of Texas from 1972 to 1976. He then went in to private practice and retired in 2000. His bio is in EdJohnson.me if you care to look it up.
The reason I am writing this is to let anyone that is looking for a wonderful poodle to know if you are reading this, you have found the place! We are getting our second little girl Thursday April 7th and we could not be more excited!
We bought our first Standard Poodle from Family Affair Standards a year ago. Her name is Sophie and she is the love of my life. Now she is getting a little sister! Sophie is not our first Standard Poodle, but our first from Family Affair. I have had four over the past 20 years. They are just naturally wonderful dogs, however, not all Standards are created equally! I thought that I had the BEST and then we found this wonderful family that have the best poodles I have ever had. Their coats are so thick and beautiful, I kind of feel sorry for our 8 year old black male that we thought was the best ever! He and Sophie are great friends, but Sophie needs someone more her age to play with, thus little sister!
Our dogs are our children. We have two daughters and four grandchildren, but when the day is done it is wonderful to just be with our dogs. You are making a huge decision getting a Standard Poodle, because I have always said they are as smart as most 6 year olds. They will be loyal to a fault and give you all the love you are looking for in a pet. AND you have found the best breeder around. God bless and enjoy your new family member.
