Teddy's mom says: Teddy was a belated Christmas gift from Santa who came to live with us on New Year's Eve. We named him Teddy because when he yelps/sings he sounds like Theodore from the Chipmunks cartoon. Everyone in the house loves him -- except for the nine-year-old resident Aussie, who finds him annoying. At seven weeks he is proving himself to be very smart. He can sit on command and is learning to fetch. Teddy loves trips to the family farm and attacking piles of dirty laundry.
