Blackjack, mostly just called "Jack", is my very first Standard Poodle, still young at heart, and the reason I fell in love with the breed. I did not choose to show Jack, though his father is a Champion. However, he is the love of my poodle life, the sweetest, gentlest, most devoted companion anyone could want. I have no doubt he would protect me to his last breath! Jack "trains" all my new kids, and he also trains me - - I used to practice my grooming skills on Jack, and let me tell you, he's had some very interesting haircuts! Gotta love this boy!
