The girl behind the poodles


Hello! And welcome to my little piece of the Internet where I get to share the loves of my life, my Standard Poodles. I am Melissa Everett Laggis. I live in Alaska. And I am the girl behind the poodles!

My great passion is back country hiking with my dogs. It is this love of the outdoors that introduced me to Standard Poodles. Upon the recommendation of a stranger at a ski resort, I began researching the value of Standard Poodles in the back country. 

Initially, I was skeptical. A Poodle is a circus dog! What could a Standard Poodle offer me in the back country of Alaska?

Oh how mistaken I was...

Today you can find me in the mountains of Alaska, always with at least one Poodle by my side. Often you'll see me out climbing, hiking and camping with my Poodles in full show coat! Because... yes! I do show my poodles in American Kennel Club conformation shows.

And they kinda rock it.

I encourage you to take a look through my site. Get to know my Standard Poodle family. Share in the pictures I take of my Poodles, almost daily. And learn more about the Poodle lifestyle, both in and out of the show ring, through my blog.

When you see us galavanting through the mountains of Alaska, be sure to say "hello!"
