Poodle Mania had its beginnings in 1974 just as “love, peace and understanding” had run its course. Once it was decided the revolution John Lennon sang about was over, a new revolution began. The Poodles are the grandchildren of that revolution. Instead of “power to the people,” it was “power to the pink.” Before the day’s end, the Poodles would know just how far the power of pink had come. The stage was set.
