Most afraid of: Ladders.
Best trick: Telling time. Every night at my kids’ bedtime, she stands up and let’s us know it’s time for her to go out and my kids to go upstairs.
Can frequently be found: On squirrel patrol in the backyard.
Sleeps at night: In bed with us.
Favorite plaything: A stuffed musical dreidel—because she loves ‘The Dreidel Song’ that it plays.

Her BFF: Pluto, a male Wheaten and poodle mix.
Her itsy bitsy downside: Because Zoe has incredible amounts of energy, she requires a ton of play and exercise.
Why a Wheaten: Zoe is amazing with kids, loves being part of the family, she’s smart, and most importantly, she doesn’t shed.
We think she is: A genius.
Most oddball behavior: Sleeps on her back with her feet sticking up in the air.
