So you think you want a bichon puppy?

Breed description and history

Bichon's are one of the cutest breed of dogs out there -- cuddly, cute, lovable, small, portable and non-allergenic. They are described in the breed standard," as a small but sturdy, white powder-puff coated breed, whose merry temperament shines. It's plumed tail is carried jauntily over the back and it has a  dark-eyed, inquisitive expression."

The breed is thought to have existed since before the time of Christ, having evolved from the Far East originally as little" lap" or " ladies" dogs, from the barbichon or water spaniel. They are believed to be related to the poodle and maltese. So what's to think about then?
