Hi, Gray the cockapoo here (aka Nicklaus.) It's been exactly one year since my family came to visit me at the centre. As soon as I met them I knew they were the ones for me so I really tried to give them a great impression. It worked! They adopted me and I promptly got carsick during the car ride home (oh well, nobody's perfect.) Things went really smoothly after that, and I have grown up into an adorable, smart teenager. I love to cuddle, play, follow my family members around wherever they go and generally spend my time charming everyone I meet. I get to run around off leash in the big parks near my house and can spend hours fetching my "chuck it" balls. Mom says we need to by stock in that company (huh?) She says I am her baby boy, because I can cuddle for hours. What could be better?! We are all so thankful that Animatch was there for me when I was little, and made sure I found a good home and family to spend my life with. We've even met other Animatch alumni in the hood (Ryder- standard poodle.) Oh, and I still get carsick but we are working on that. Mom says if anyone has suggestions to help she'd love to hear them. They want to take me EVERYWHERE- what can I say? Life is great, and it's because of the people at Animatch who care so much. We are furever grateful!
