4 Reasons Why Toy Poodles Are The Most Rewarding Dogs

Their large personality means a large amount of love.

4 Reasons Why Toy Poodles Are The Most Rewarding Dogs
Casey Clarke

While you may not think it at first, toy poodles are extremely lovable dogs. While they are known for being petite and cute, they, like most other small dogs, are thought to have an attitude and bark that overcompensate for their size. When my family and I decided to adopt a toy poodle, Anastasia, I realized that, while their attitude can be big, they are full of love and having one is a very rewarding experience. Here are four reasons why getting a toy poodle is completely worth it.

1. Their personality makes up for their size

Casey Clarke

Toy poodles may be tiny, but they pack a big personality. Yes, this means that they may be a little more hyper than other breeds, but their personalities are what make them unique and personable. My toy poodle can easily get excited when she meets someone new or want to play. She gets a little neurotic whenever someone leaves the house, barking at them while their car leaves the driveway. She also stands her ground when playing with my Boston terrier, who easily overpowers her. Ana's strong personality, like that of many other toy poodles, makes her quirky and even more loveable.

2. They may get sassy, but their cuteness makes up for it

Casey Clarke

Their adorableness makes up for any attitude or barking problem they may have. While their tiny size and curly hair are very cute, their mannerisms are what make them the most adorable. When Anastasia meets someone new, she gets really wiggly and curls up into a ball. When she is happy and running, she hops in between strides. She lays belly-up in the living room every night right after dinner. She also makes the cutest little sound when she is stretching or being picked up. These little actions only add to her quirkiness and cuteness, and they make the whole family smile.

3. They are incredibly smart

It doesn't take long to teach a toy poodle a trick. All poodles are notorious for their high intelligence levels. The breed even used to be trained to be in the circus. They learn very quickly, which makes it easy to train them or teach them tricks. It was not difficult to train my toy poodle, and it is very cool to see that she understands a lot of what my family and I say or do.

4. They want to spend every minute they can by your side

Casey Clarke

Toy poodles love others just as much as they are loved by others. While my family and I fell in love with Anastasia instantly, she fell in love with us almost as quickly. She always wants to be near us and becomes sad when we leave, even if it is just to go grocery shopping. She especially fell in love with my mom, following her around 24/7, sleeping right next to her at night, and always wanting to cuddle with her.

We have had Anastasia for almost three years, and they have been the three best years of my life and have proved that toy poodles are incredible and extremely lovable dogs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
