Arrival Story:
We had just lost our lovie girl, Argon. We love poodles and schnauzer, so having a standard poodle in our mix just makes it a happy home. We found a breeder we loved in Mo., but some family medical problems got in the way of going back and forth to choose the right pup. When we had decided to wait a while, a local breeder was brought to our attention. It was just meant to be. I would love to recommend the local breeder and breeder in Mo. to anyone looking for breeders of quality that really care about more than just competition quality pups in the litters. They are both spectacular. We just love our baby boy and the boys are enjoying him, too!

Hi, this is Zach and I am so excited!!! I have been growing up so much since my mom and dad brought me home a year ago, to live with my big brothers and them. I love my family, they think I'm lots of fun, too! I have lots of energy and do zoomies all around our house and coffee tables. I'm super fast and wiggle my tush around like I should be cast for the next "Mama Mia" movie!!! Well, I wasn't always so obedient, I used to like to use mom as a chew toy when I was a little puppy and didn't know better. I thought her hands tasted really good, better than my teething toys and she always smelled yummy, all that good stuff from Bath & Body Works, ya know!! I knew papa was the boss, but thought I could boss my sweet, push over mama around a little. Especially, because my big brothers were the four legged bosses in my house. I wasn't too fond of being low man on the totem pole if you get my bark?!!

So, mom and dad got this fantastic trainer to come to our house and she taught mom some new tricks and gave her lots of mom homework to make sure I grew up to be a nice, loving, non-mouthing big boy poodle!!! Well, hard work and lots of yummy kibble treats prevailed. I passed doggy college(three levels of dog school) and I'm a A+ doggy citizen when I'm with my mom and dad. I love all people, kids, older people, wheel chair people, strollers, other dogs, especially little dogs and I'm a pretty darn good listener. Okay, I don't like to give up the paper towels that I steel out of papa's pocket and I really like mom's socks.... but a youngster has to have some things to work on so that I can keep getting lots of attention from mom!!

I've been learning a lot from my big brothers, Beau and Bentley this past year. I learn a lot from my litter mate brother, Sidney, too. I get to go on great walks with him and his mom and play in their humongous yard!! Sometimes, our litter mate sister, Teckla, comes to play, too! That's my favorite play date ever, we're like the Three Poodle Musketeers.

Well, last but not least, this really nice lady called mom to interview us for an article in one of our local magazines. If we get chosen, we might have our picture in it, too. Then, I could show my big, little brothers and they'd know I'm all grown up and a big boy now!! If we get in the magazine article for sure, mom will let everyone know. If we don't, I sure like seeing mom light up like she did when she first saw me!! I couldn't believe my poodle ears, she said such nice things about me and she was sooooo proud!!! Just as proud as she is when she talks about my brothers and my sister Argon who passed away last year.

I hope everyone is having a great day and gets lots of lovies from their folks!!! woof and xo From Zach, Beau, Bentley and our mom!!!
