This is the story of a energetic and uniquely talented poodle, who could famously twist herself into a noodle. Silva was never excited by a game of throw and catch, she preferred to open the gate latch, to find and rummage through the neighbor’s trash. Sneakers, slippers, sandals and boots were her favorite toys, she would sniff, chew and tear each one with elated joy. Hours were spent attempting to keep her coiffed, but as soon as the hair and paws were set she was off. Her perfect do and trims were quickly matted and doffed, but her owners never once scoffed. Entranced by her beauty, smarts and allure, they were smitten and doted on her. No rules were ever set, and Silva’s every move was met, only with delight and not a hint of regret. Indeed she was a magnificent beast except, for the fact that she only behaved when she slept.
