Poodles are Manly

According to Ted, anyway.

What's the explanation for their annoying yappy-ness?

Mostly their small size. Like any other breed, there are barky individuals and ones less so. Some big dogs won't shut up either, but nobody calls them 'yappy'.

Short version: a dog is a dog is a dog. :)

For a full-size poodle, it's probably that silly-looking hairdo. Yes, I've heard it was designed to help them swim (they were bred for hunting, as retrievers), but if so why don't other breeds get treated to it?

A dog is a dog, but a poodle is a stick insect.

Our poodle will never ever get the sissy haircut. In the summer he stays shaved short, in the winter he gets woolly.

Ever see the add with the fru fru poodle that says some dogs should be cats?

Because quite often men, unless asleep, eating, or licking themselves, are also yappy.

You know a man that licks himself?

Pete- I used to, but since he learned how he never leaves the house.
