Fifi was a fun little Mini Poodle. She was great with the children that she saw on a regular basis, but a little sharper with strangers.
She was often ill, and had many seizures, though this could have been due to poor breeding. One time, Fifi bumped her head on the side of a desk and had a seizure, it was quite scary for us, but she came out of it rather quickly.
Fifi enjoyed playing with her human child most of the time. This particular poodle was indeed very smart, as most poodles are, and while she didn't want to spend too much time learning tricks, she did indulge us with learning how to sit, stay, beg, dance, and shake.
Fifi had a long life, like many other small breeds, but I think if we would have researched our breeder more thoroughly, we would have had a healthier little dog.
Overall, we loved our Mini Poodle. She was adorable, easy to care for and train, and was a great family pet.
