AKC Miniature Poodle Anton is Nico's little "brother" and lives in Lydia's parents' home, though he officially belongs to my youngest sister, Alee. Nico held himself aloof when Anton first arrived as a punk little puppy, but now the two enjoy chasing the same squeaky ball, and practice doing tricks together for the same treats. Now Anton is the "big boy", and Paddington is the little brother who wants to be just like him! Anton loves the lake life and enjoys trips out in the kayak. He is enthusiastic about all of the grandchildren who come to visit and has a very mature sense of how to be gentle with the littlest ones. Anton passes along his spunky but gentle personality as well as his smarts and dashing good looks to his chocolate and parti-colored offspring!
