Oh WOW!  I love the story of Turbo and Nitro!  Thanks for sharing.  I didn't mean to imply you were stupid; sometimes we say furkids are siblings as they live in the same house, I wasn't sure if that is what you were getting at.  How wonderful that you have a home full of rescues!  (I do as well, all mine are rescues, dogs and cats).

And Hemi is a poochon, as my Riley!  Yep, the tall legs give it away, ha haaa.  Along with a sleeker body; bichons tend to have a box body, lol.

 Thank You

Yes, he's tall but light weight. He only weighs 11 lbs.
 I retired in May so I have more time to spend with the fur babies now. I walk them around the neighborhood and Hemi is learning how to walk on a leash. I've been walking every other day with all 4 of them (one at a time) since July. Hemi was a total idiot on the leash so about 4 weeks ago we started training. I give them all grades when I get home. Hemi got an A today for the first time. Turbo was even better. Nitro and Perro are usually good anyway but they all have their moments. I'm determined to train Hemi and Nitro. I love my babies.

Sandie, I'm sure there is a lot of variety among poochons because they are a cross: but do you find that poochons need less grooming than bichons?

Craig, that all depends on the individual dog.  My Riley has a poodle coat, definitely NOT a bichon coat.  MUCH easier to groom, does not tangle nearly as easily.  Overall her coat is easy to deal with and her grooming sessions are less than half the time I spend on the bichons.

The only think Poodle about Hemi is his size. Tall and thin. His fur is all Bichon. It's thick and grows fast. Sandie, Riley looks a lot like Hemi. I think the Poochon is a fabulous breed. If they had to cross, it was a good match.
