What is it about Japan and poodles? You may remember Diana’s hilarious post “Some Women Are Dogs” (it’s worth another look), and also that fake news story circulating a month ago about thousands of Japanese buying poodles over the internet and not realizing that they were sheep (thanks to Ty for that tip). The story itself was a hoax, but not before lots of people got their digs in on those key-razy Japs–they’re so gullible! they’re so absurd! they’re so wack…they must be retahded!
Apparently, the poodle is the 8th most popular breed in Japan. The breed is sure to get a bump in popularity after Smash, a Japanese-born French Poodle, took best in show last week at the World Dog Show in Mexico City.
