He is our littlest puppy, nicknamed "Turk"
because he wears a turquoise rick-rack collar.
The name has been fitting in another way, too: he's
quite a little fighter. We were very worried about him and feared that
we'd lose him as we had lost two of his brothers.
But Turk doesn't let his bigger brothers and sisters
get in his way. He routinely pushes puppies almost twice his size
aside and bellies up to the lunch bar with the best of 'em!
I predict a very full career of Standard
Poodle mischief and merriment for this boy!
