Puppy "A" Litter

Chaparral's Lickity Split is a really enjoyable puppy with a great disposition that brings a smile to our face every day.  He is happy-go-lucky, charming, handsome and is so light on his feet he is always impressing me with his agility.   A true mountain dog!
I have his brother, Bear, as a basis for comparison and Lick-Lick leaps around like he has springs on the bottom of his feet and is constantly outmaneuvering all the other dogs in games of play.  When there is a flight of stairs to climb Lick-Lick gracefully takes them two at a time while his brother, Bear climbs each step with purpose.  When there is an obstacle in his path Lick-Lick flies over it with enthusiasm and ease while his brother goes around it.  His personality is very biddable and all he wants to do is work for me, or anyone else that offers up a challenge.

Currently we are teaching the pups to enjoy the pool.  Lick-Lick hasn't decided if he is as brave as the older pups swimming around in the pool, but eventually the temptation will get the best of him, I'm sure.

His only bad habit is wanting to jump up when greeting anyone but we are working on correcting that behavior and when Lick-Lick thinks instead of reacts he keeps all four feet on the ground.  He adores children of all ages and thinks they are great playmates.

If you would like to learn if Lick-Lick, or his brother, Bear, would be a suitable companion for your family please email me, Susan at
