My puppy’s home environment:
Saxon has spent time in a tiny two bedroom beach apartment and several houses with big backyards and pools. He's spent time in an office and on a huge college campus. In smaller environments, Saxon's energy level is much lower.

In more spacious environments, Saxon enjoys following me around everywhere, spreading his toys throughout the house, and running like a puppy in the backyard. In any environment, Saxon strives to find sunny spots for napping.

My puppy’s favorite companions (family members, work pals, other pets):
This one is easy: Saxon's favorite buddy is Hero, his 13 year old career change yellow labrador 'brother'.

Saxon is very particular about his 'people' and remembers my close friends, any puppy raiser who has given him a kibble reward, and even family members that visit occasionally. He greets his favorite people enthusiastically - there will be no doubt who is special in Saxon's life!

My puppy’s bedtime routine:
Saxon is an excellent sleeper and had slept free in the room since he was housebroken, although he will sleep in a crate or on tie-down as well. As if the pictures posted so far aren't enough proof - Saxon needs a lot of sleep and will put himself to bed if he's tired enough. He is great about staying in his bed until it is time for me to wake up. He's not a dog to wake you with a wet nose.
