Author writes about the Standard Poodle his wife co-owned with a breeder - the trials and triumphs of dealing with a show dog. Very educational for those that know little about Standard Poodles and dog shows. I bet you don't know the American Kennel Standards for Poodles. Book is also about a family that has had and lost 2 previous dogs and adjusting to the fact that a new dog has his own personality and ways. Some very amusing stories of dealing with a dog.

All animal lovers will love this book

This is my own book! Of course I read it and have mixed feelings about it, as any author would of his issue. Please read it and rate it for me.

What a delightful book. This novel follows the adventures of a "champion" poodle and the very FUNNY family that owns him. I think Maxim, the poodle, owns the family! Insightful and clever. I laughed out loud and I even shed a tear. The illustrations really helped to give an even clearer picture of the story. Looking forward to more books from this author! ...more

Reading this book had an enjoyable double impact. I fell in love with this dog and walked away with a deep appreciation for how special an individual Maxim and dogs in general can be. I also thoroughly enjoyed the voice and humor and heart of the author. The book both took me someplace where I walked away with insight and laughs.
