People collect all sorts of things.  The News On 6's Rick Wells recently received an e-mail from a viewer telling him about a friend's poodle collection.  As he approached the home in Broken Arrow, he knew he was in for oodles of poodles.

There was a poodle on the fence, a poodle on a bumper sticker, and poodles R us on a license plate.  There was a lot more inside the house.

"Poodles everywhere, pictures of poodles, poodles in the tub, poodles over there, pictures of poodles getting their hair done, poodles on the clock, see the poodle on the clock?  It's an obsession I'm telling ya," said Janet McGrath.

Janet McGrath is a groomer of mostly poodles and a collector of anything poodleish.

In the poodle bathroom is that a roll of poodle toilet paper.  The shower curtain she found on e-bay, vintage 1958 and brand new.

In addition to the poodle bathroom, there is a poodle bedroom.  Poodles are on the bed and the dressing table.

Janet is adding more poodle stuff all the time:  plates, bowls, towels, figures.  She says she stopped counting the items at about 800.

There are, of course, live poodles, like Sophie who was stopping by for a new do.
