So I recently introduced a new member to my small family. His name is Jake, he's a miniature poodle, 2 years old, stands at around 15" tall, and weighs just shy of 12lbs. He came home with us from the Oregon Humane Society 06/12/2013.
I'm really tempted to just spoil him to death, but I've been pretty good at curbing that temptation and actually following a training regimen for him. His training is going really well because of that and he's managed to learn "sit", "off", and "watch me" in just the week or so since we've started. He was already house trained too which was a bonus for us!
