My Story: This handsome young man was named Reese after his grandmother Theresa. His big, bright eyes and wide array of cute behaviors have proven to be incredibly captivating. At any given session you will find him playing with his favorite toys in creative ways, or flexing his muscles as he flies through the air to show off. He is always cuddling close to give kisses to his trainers, and not to mention chatting up a storm! In fact, by nine months of age he began offering almost every vocalization in the book. Reese likes to swim dock to dock during sessions with the trainers to see what all the other guys are up to. His all time favorite behavior is his breach where he launches up out of the air and smacks his full body on the water’s surface.
