Ok they're not exactly puppies any more, but they'll always be that to me.
Standard poodles are very loving dogs, and like nothing better than to drape themselves over you (and each other). This can be disconcerting for other people, even those used to dogs who have had different breeds that don't behave this way. As poodles have a coat that's more like wool rather than fur, they don't shed, and they feel lovely and soft and warm. I leave their coats to grow long over winter. When they get clipped closely in spring, their skin feels like velvet.
