Jonathan Friedman recently sat down (on the ground) to have a chat with a good friend of his. Tucker may only be two years old, but he sure had lots to “say.”
Tucker: I am a Standard Poodle. There are many kinds of Poodles out there but I am the tallest kind of my breed.
Jonathan: How old are you?
Tucker: I am two years old. I certainly hope my owners have a good birthday treat for me to celebrate.
Jonathan: Do you have a favorite toy?
Tucker: Well, my favorite toys are my owners and their friends, but if I can’t get their attention, give me a tennis ball and I will be in heaven!
Jonathan: I know you have a lot of friends, but do you have a best friend?
Tucker: Absolutely! My best friend is Sam Michaels. Whenever I see him, I can’t stop wagging my tail and jumping up and down.
Jonathan: Do you live here at Cheshire Academy?
Tucker: I do indeed. I live in Motter Hall with English Teacher Wesley Simon, right here on the campus, which is awesome because I have so many people who want to pet me.
Jonathan: Speaking of petting you, you have really soft fur.
Tucker: That is very true – my coat is soft. But actually, I don’t have any fur at all. I have hair just like you. Because of that, I don’t shed very much and if people have allergies, they can still play with me without sneezing. My owner says that I have “luscious brown hair” and that is a fact.
