Okay, I'll bite.

OP, what's the difference between these two images?

One entails a man gazing wistfully at a macabre caricature of where his life is headed; the other is a scene from The Picture of Dorian Gray.

I have a rescue poodle OP.
If you have any questions you can ask me.
They're not one of the outgoing super-friendly dogs that'll run up and jump on all your guests, they're pretty wary of strangers and the males will even IMO make good guard dogs. They're really affectionate to family members though.

Ours' hair needs to be cut about every 6 weeks. They're plenty bright and if you know how to train dogs they'll pick up on it.

I'm a cat guy so I'm down with them not wanting to be everyone's friend all the time. I don't mindgetting her/him groomed bimonthly, tho I'd prolly just get them the most basic cheapo cut available; how much does that run?
I'm attracted to the breed because they're intelligent-I want to train them to run with me as I slow cruise on a bicycle and other silly stuff to work them out. I 've had dogs before but was never a great trainer- I would have to socialize them them with other dogs better than I did last time.... any advice on making sure they're good with a cat?

Ours is not great with other large dogs, because I think he starts thinking about who's dominant. But he LOVES small dogs and he's good with cats. Poodles are pretty docile around the house and not hyperactive...cats hate hyper dogs.

My dad cuts the poodle's hair actually. The dog likes getting its hair cut/brushed, the only hard part is the paws. I think a professional grooming is pricey, like $60+ every few months.
If you want to take it out bikejoring they're great for that. The name "poodle" is derived from the german word for "puddle," these dogs will take to water if you start them early and have a lot of fun.
Honestly I've had 2 dogs that were bred for hunting ducks, and neither of them is half as good at swimming as the poodle. Watching a poodle swim is really interesting, it's very graceful and low-effort for them compared to labs who dog-paddle and hyperventilate.
My best advice is to teach him/her fetch at a young age, because it's very easy to exercise them and teaches them a lot about learning and gives them a little job to do.

I will say this:
that ranking of the smartest breeds is dependent upon a bunch of AKC judge's opinions, and poodles are one of the breeds that gets shown the most. So take it with a pinch of salt; those rankings tend to reflect breeds represented in shows more.

I really wish people would start breeding poodle mixes that had shorter coats. Poodles/Goldendoodles are great but if you're a disabled person who needs a service dog you're probably not fit to groom your dog regularly.

If you like poodles thats cool and all. I would only get one as it has hair and not fur. Aka hypoallergenic. Young poodles seem to bond with one person, older rescue poodles seem calmer. Either way once you bring a dog in your home you need to spend a lot of time with it.

There are labradoodles with many different coat types, and one type has straight hair that’s about 6inches long so you don’t need to cut it.
This coat type tends to shed somewhat though.

I'm not a poodle dude, have had them. I had a poodle who became diabetic and another that pissed blood. The latter was a 14 yr old rescue we had for two years, her life was comfortable at the end. However, the reaper knocks.

Decide who's the dad before you get it. When you get a puppy. It needs constant attention. You gotta be home. Think of it like raising a human naby. If you leave a human baby alone for 8 hours a day, you will have horrible behavioural consequences. Please, dont take it lightly. If you can't commit, get a grown up dog. Many owners dont understand just how much emergy it really takes. You gotta put your whole life aside for months.

Do lota of research into bonding, socialization, and how to discipline and reward dogs properly. No slouching around.

Do it right or don't do it at all. That's the most important thing. Please do it right, its worth it.

Just to clarify what I mean by dad. Basically every moment you spend with the puppy, you're neurologically inprinting upon it that you are his parent. This is the most crucial phase of the dog's life and if you fuck this part up, it will be very difficult or impossible to fix later.
