Owner: Brittany Haning, Senior PR Manager, Trinchero Family Estates
Location: Tiburon, Calif.
Dog Name: Style
Breed: Goldendoodle (affectionate, intuitive, intelligent, playful, loyal)
In a Word: Thoughtful
Job Title: Ferocious guard dog (at least he thinks he is)
Star Quality: Oblivious to boundaries and physical space
Best Bud: My feet, while I'm working from home at my living room table
Favorite Possession: His robust collection of carrots and other vegetable-shaped toys from BarkBox
Obsessions: Style inexplicably despises deer. He also exclusively sleeps under our bed and refuses to sleep elsewhere.
Favorite Getaway: Our friends' home in St. Helena, where Style can play with his best friend, Cooper, an English Golden Retriever puppy
Forgivable Flaw: Style loves to fall asleep on top of you (without invitation) within seconds. Good luck trying to reach for your glass of wine or the remote with 50 pounds of sleeping dog on your chest.
Background Story: My husband and I adopted Style from Berkeley Doodles, where he remains a part of their breeding program. His first litter of puppies just went home in late January, and the breeder is expecting more soon!
