      and I believe the post above is the first time ever I've been able to find some way to work it into one.

      If I ever had a full sized French poodle -- very smart dogs, originally hunting dogs  -- I've always thought 'trebuchet' would be great name for him.

      And, no, I wouldn't get one of those fancy 'poodle cuts' for him -- a straight or lion cut would be fine.

      I've been told by members of the poodle fancy that the poodle cuts date back to early hunting days. Each chateau had a distinctive trim style so their dogs could be picked out of the hunting pack. That's what I've been told, anyway.  

      When atlatls are outlawed, only outlaws will have atlatls.
