Name: Sugar, as in Sugar Ray Leonard, Sugar Ray, the pop band ("Fly" and "Every Morning"), and 1969's Song of the Year (no kidding), "Sugar Sugar."

Birthdate: December 23, 2016, I'm just getting going.

Ethnicity: I'm a toy poodle girly-girl with some spaniel in my DNA. I'm on the petite side, nine pounds and I'm done growing. I'm very playful and love kids and other pooches. Just no cats! I'm going to ask for a little patience on the training. I'm almost there, and I'm a quick learner. Just point me to the backyard or I'll perform on walks. Take a look at me — ain't I a sweetie?

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, September 28 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
