Thank you to everyone for participating. The winner of Wilhelmina's care package is , Whitley Westie! Whitley guessed that Wilhelmina's breed was a Poodle. But you were all very close in guessing large breeds/crosses since Wilhelmina as a Standard Poodle, will indeed be a very big girl when full grown!
Here are five interesting facts about Standard Poodles :
1. The Standard Poodle can be traced back to the Middle-Ages.
2. They were valued water retrievers (retrieving waterfowl) and are still used for waterfowl retrieving today.
3. They were often offered as invaluable gifts to noblemen in distant lands due to their intelligence and superior water skills.
4. The long standing existence of Standard Poodles can be traced back to Germany, France, Russia, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, England, Belgium and Holland.
5.The Standard Poodle is and has always been revered for her intelligence, humour and wiry, curly coat.
