Chicken Noodle??

I'm a cat person and I don't try to hide that. I'm not a huge fan of the canine companion, but apparently they appeal to some people. However, in spite of their barking, slobbering, whining chewing and every other loud and wet behavior they do have one redeeming quality: their breeds. Specifically: the poodle.

Why the poodle? It has nothing to do with their character. It has to do with their names. I'm not talking about their owner-given names like "Princess", "Snooky" and "Pumpkin". No, I'm referring to the name given to the new breed created everytime you mix a poodle with any other type of dog (and how is it that you can breed a poodle with so many other types of dog??). Now THIS is entertainment.

The Cockapoo. The Labradoodle. Really, who comes up with these names?? It sounds like someone just asked their 3-year old, dressed in pink, ballerina wannabe daughter to name the dog! So I got to thinking...what else could you breed with a poodle, and what would you call it?

Snickerdoodle (A Snickers bar and a poodle)
Pooh-poo (Winnie-the-Pooh and a poodle)
Caboodle (A taxi and a poodle)

Please, feel free to elaborate...I just wanted to get the ball rolling with this one!

Okay, so it's kinda cheesey to post a comment to your own writings, but as a, as a SERVICE to my sister's husband's brother's pet I feel the need to inform the world of the poodle's continuing attempt to interbreed with all other dog types, thereby systematically eliminating all other breeds and eventually becoming the dominant dog in the world.

So here we have it: the Peekapoo and the Lhasapoo. Yes, you can also breek a Pekingese and a Lhasa Apso with a poodle. But, as we are finding out, what CAN'T you breed with a poodle?! I'm still curious to know what else is out there, so don't let me down!
