Jazz the Standard poodle with the children

It is hard work having a young family and getting a puppy, my youngest was only 18 Months old when Jazz arrived on the scene. However when I look back on videos like the above, its a wonderful time and the pleasures of dog ownership outweigh the difficult times. In hindsite, the best time for a puppy is probably when your  last child goes to Nursery, as this gives you more time to spend teaching a puppy right from wrong.Anyway, I have no regrets and my children cannot remember life without Jazz.
Note the immediate difference between a Barbet and a poodle, my Barbets have never balanced on their back legs and waved, that is a strong poodle characteristic!
