Dog of the Month


I am Gator, an apricot miniature poodle born on March 1, 2020.

I'm a Pisces who enjoys car rides, empty water bottles, dining out, long walks on the beach and wrestling crocs (my humans’ shoes, not the real ones).

I got my AKC star puppy certificate thanks to the fine tutelage of Ms. Gina K.  My fav exercises are naps, chasin and bringing back balls, ears a floppin, and swimming in our pool.   It took a lot of cheese sticks, but I think I am a pretty strong swimmer now.

I moved from Ft Myers to Dunedin in May of last year and excited to explore the Suncoast. I look forward to making friends and play dates.

I am not conceited but I am wicked smart.  I know hand signals for sit and down.  I know how to stay and can almost leash walk (I’m holding out for more cheese) and I stay back from the door when told.  I "chill" on my bed while my people work and enjoy a stuffed Kong in my crate at bedtime. 

I'd like to go to China some day and could dig there from my backyard if my humans would stop interrupting me.

My favorite phrases are Grrrr and ruff ruff.

P.S. Bones are delicious.
