Dogs can be fearsome and scary creatures and they can really hurt you if you're not careful. But at the same time they are quite capable of loving you like no other creature can, unconditionally and with a spirit of greater love.
If you have a dream about a dog poodle this probably has to do with your affinity for looking good. Poodles are dogs that are not only known for looking very cute and fluffy, but for having fur which is highly customizable. Many women that have poodles will customize their fur and cut it to a length that will make it look like a nice hair sculpture. If you do your dog's hair right then this means that your poodle can look quite like a frou frou puppy. The people that do this kind of thing to their poodles and the people that own poodles in general though can be quite shallow and care too much about their own looks. If you have a dream in which you are paying this close attention to your dog and his or her hair or where your dog poodle is following you around with nice hair, this means that you are too concerned with looks and need to develop some depth right now.
