Did you know that poodles, with their silly pom-poms of hair, actually have it cut that way for a reason?
Back in the 16th and 17th centuries, poodles in Europe were used to fetch lost items from the water. They were partially shaved because their dense hair would weigh them down, causing them to sink.
Groomers left puffs of hair around their neck, head, chest and joints to protect vital organs and joints and to help them stay warm.
As time went on, people realized they could cut their poodle's hair into intricate, artistic designs, sometimes to complement their owner's style or even to match their hair.
This little poodle knows just how beautiful she is. Her chin is tilted upwards and her eyes closed, as if to enjoy the admiration of onlookers.
