All in the Family


Poodle / Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

Addie is a doll. Very smart ~ friendly and loving. Her Momma was a cockapoo...much too small for the puppies she was trying to bring into the world. Dad was a large, Soft Coated Weaten Terrier. Addie's Mom ended up having a C-Section. The strain of the surgery and hungry puppies caused her to wean them early. As a result we brought Addie home when she was a teeny tiny 4 week old ball of white fluff! I would cuddle her in my arms and she would snuggle into me and knead my arm like she was nursing. I never taught her to heel. She just stuck to me like glue and went everywhere I went. Even now, she follows me around while I work and is never far away from where l'm sitting and l love it! She has me well trained. She taught me the difference between the "I want a treat" and "I want to go out" noises. Before our dachshund learned to scratch at the door to come in, Addie would let me know that he was at the door by signaling me that she wanted out. When I'd follow her to the door and open it, she would promptly lay down. It took me a few times to realize that whenever that happend, our dachshund was on the other side of the sliding glass door wanting in. I guess I don't learn as fast as Addie! =) She has always considered me "Her Person" So... I think, just to please me, she went through 4-H and Agility Training with our daughter. She clearly enjoyed it and really excelled. I used to take her to the schools where she would demonstrate what following directions looked like. She was always a real hit with the kids. She recieved Grand Champion in Agility and her natural desire to please caused her to learn many communication signals that still benefit her. She's been with us for 16 years now. Because she's older, there are some tones she can't hear anymore but she has a sharp mind and remembers the communication signals she learned, and does really super. She is a great Alpha dog to our kids dogs. A dachshund named Aiden and a dachshund/pekingese mix named Riley. She helps them mind their manners and they adore her. So do we!
