There are benefits to having a tiny toy poodle... obviously, she doesn't eat much, and she doesn't take up a lot of room. She's great for cleaning up random spills and the odd crumb. Tonight, however, I'm reminded of another one. Playing fetch with a dog this sized doesn't mean we go out into the backyard. No, I can toss a beanie-bear across the living room ten or fifteen times and she's winded. She's really one of the sweetest little doggies I've ever had; she loves BIG even though she's tiny. She's a great dog.
