1. It might have to do with

the fact that the poodle ate your headphones and returned them a month later, in good condition and and in a box, no less.

That was a feat that even a 172 lb. Newfie would admire.

7. I suppose not

it's just that the big ones are the most intimidated.

We have an Old English that's a real push over and he'd be cowed by the poodle too I'm sure.

8. Big dogs can be real easy.

I think maybe nothing much scares them because of their size. (I've had Great Pyrenees for many years, and they're absurdly laid back.) Toy poodles do rule. We had a pair…toy poodle who wandered into our backyard one day….and her devoted subject, Pasha, a Kuvasz who followed all of her instructions obediently. Kuvasz can be tricky, though. Pasha hated most other dogs. But he never gave Mopsie any trouble.
Today, Wilbur, our Pyrenees, happily does Elbe's bidding. She's a smallish skinny dog from a Camden rescue. Looks like a cross between a Whippet and a Black Lab. Wilbur is at least three times as big and he has seniority in the house. But it doesn't matter. She rules.

9. All the small dogs I've had have "little big man syndrome"

They're small so they have to be twice as macho.

10. Some friends of mine had two Siberian huskies

When another friend was no longer able to keep his small dog, they took her in. I don't know exactly what breed or combination of breeds she was, but she quickly became the alpha dog in that household.

12. The small ones KNOW they get away with a lot more.

The bigger ones know that if they try to do anything to the small one, they would get so much grief for it.

They take advantage of their privileged position.
