KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a loving compendium of facts- and some fancies -- about this breed which is sure to reach that growing public of owners. Here's the poodle's history, not only in America, but back to his origins as a sporting dog in Germany, and the years through which he became the clipped and pompommed eccentric he is today in the show world, with his steady popularity and his current rise to fashionableness. There are chapters on raising, feeding, grooming, care, training, there are the standards of the Poodle Club of America, and there are also many quotations from satisfied owners which point up the unusual qualities of their pets. This is not a cut and dried dog book but conscientious collection of poodle particulars.
