||A son of Levi and Envy, Gable lives in Halifax N.S. with his mom, our friend Leslie Lord.
We first met Leslie at the Poodle Club of America Specialty in Maryland, in 2000, when Leslie was showing Gable’s uncle.
Leslie and Gable started as a team in the conformation ring, with Gable achieving his Canadian Championship at 9 months of age , with a Best Puppy in Group win.
Gable is a high energy , high drive dog who loves performance events, and he loves to bark while he works.
My favorite puppy story about Gable :
Shortly after Gable went to live with Leslie at 9 weeks of age, Leslie scolded Gable for his barking in the house. Gable’s response was to stick his head, sideways under a couch cushion and bark some more. Of course, this muffled the sound, and I guess that Gable thought that would be a good enough solution.
He’s very much a thinking Poodle and Leslie is a wonderful trainer, so their team work is a wonderful combination.
