Owner: Erica Chou

Daniel is a 7-year-old Toy Poodle from Taiwan and has completed beginners and advanced obedience courses at Gemini K9 Obedience. Described as a charismatic, intelligent and helpful companion, Daniel loves to play fetch; though his owner Erica admits that sometimes 'he enjoys cat toys more than his ball'.

Erica adds that Daniel has 'teddy-bear cuteness' and has been in a few photo competitions. He's also bilingual, loves eating oranges, and according to Erica even picked out her fiancée (whose name is also Daniel) for her.

Erica is the first Canadian to be certified as a creative groomer by the National Association of Professional Creative Groomers and says that 'to have Daniel win the one of the most famous canine roles in history would be an amazing honor for both he and I.'
