Special relationship, Master and Poodle 🤭

John, I get the impression that you’ve never owned a poodle -

maybe that’s why your illustration looks nothing like one …:wink:


You are correct Mark. Though I’m watching a mini one having a hip replacement as I type (Super Vet I think). Maybe it’s the bouffant hairstyles that make me think they are so at odds with the bulldog spirit of yore.

Never a greater reason to support France’s Laïcité!


Based on personal experience, I’d suggest that poodles are super obedient, but only until you get tired of playing ball with them

(and of course if any French person has the temerity to cycle or row past the house).

Or row to, in a small boat :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
