Being a poodle is a highly specialized full-time job. No, not just a job, a career! As a professional poodle who has achieved the highest level of success, I decided to share my secrets on Cindy’s blog. I don’t think she’ll mind if I take center stage for a minute. After all, I let her live in my house and sleep in my bed.
Choose your poodle name.
Most dogs are named Max or Missy or something like that. Poodles are named Penelope or Cognac or… well, Josephine. My namesake is Josephine Bonarparte, whose second husband Napoleon Bonaparte famously wrote to her from the battlefront: “I am coming home in three days. Don’t bathe.” That makes a lot of sense to me.
