Pasha is a diminutive of Pavel, a Russian form of Paul.
The name means 'little, humble' in Russian.
He is about 30 pounds of pure love and affection.
Pasha is an Australian Labradoodle (a very hypoallergenic cross between the Poodle, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever), which is a very friendly, social breed that loves everyone.
He is sensitive and very in tune with his humans, whom he loves to be with! He does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time, so sometimes he comes to work with me.
Fun fact: Pasha is bilingual and understands both Russian & English. He listens to my daughter better than me, no matter what language!
