   Leave a bone for Zach

Nicknames:
Zachattack, thackthster, zacker2, poochkins, pup-pup, poopster

Quick Bio:
-purebred

Likes:
Momma, his kitty sister chasing him around the coffee table, cleaning the sidewalk of paper products, doggy parks, the ocean, behaving badly in public, playing outside all day

Pet-Peeves:
When he overhears grown men telling his momma they think he's pretty, when momma whips out the digital camera ( his expression in the black & white picture says it all), and when his kitty sister drinks out of his water bowl or tries to eat his food

Favorite Toy:
His kitty sis, who thinks he makes a rather nice toy, too

Favorite Food:
Steak, whatever momma's having, and sometimes grass!

Favorite Walk:
A morning walk in the woods

Best Tricks:
Making napkins disappear, making small children initially believe he's only the 15 lb. puppy he use to be when really he's an 80lb. runaway locomotive

Arrival Story:
It was a dream of momma's to have a dog of her own. Finally it was time. She researched high and low for the right pup. From networking with golden breeders at shows to looking into the eyes of shelter and puppy store dogs, you can see she almost became desperate (puppy stores??)! Finally, on the verge of collapse, she slapped $100 down one Friday on the counter of a puppy store to reserve a golden pup she thought she'd "save." But low and behold, checking out the classifieds that weekend "just to browse" before picking up the puppy store pup that Monday, she saw my litter's listing and came out to see me and my siblings. She did the puppy test, picking us up and cradling us on our back (would we wiggle to get free?), dropping a book on the floor (would we be startled?), etc. My brother and sister like to show off but I'm a little more quiet. Momma seemed real friendly and when she picked me up she smiled at me. I'd never seen a smile like that. I felt safe in her arms. I knew I was special when she nuzzled her face close to mine. We've been best friends ever since.

Bio:
Loyal companion, laid back personality, well-educated, good listener, great sense of humor, adventurous type. Zach is proof that goldens can live happily in apartments, as long as they are exercised enough. Bottom line, he is happiest with his mom, and people in general, inside or out.
