My husband and I have a 10 month old Toy Poodle, she was the runt of the litter. Now she is the center of our lives, and we try to take her everywhere we go. We have had toy poodles before, but that was before we retired. We have had three before and they all lived to be 15 or 16 years old. Missy is our new poodles name, and she has become a real challenge for me.
