Hay everyone...I'm Farley

Let me tell you a little about myself. I have a very important roll in the house. My job is to keep up the noise, messiness, amusement, love, affection, and chaos that went missing during the "empty nest". O.K. my bother Stanley the cat helps too. So some of my regular activities are things like: Take-a-Towel, Tug-a-Stick, Steal-a-Sock, Chew-a-Stick, Fetch-a-Anything, and helping the neighbors on TRASH DAY. I do have a job (it's more of a mission) that is mine alone. FETCH THE PAPER. It's the best thing EVER. I get it every morning and get a greenie for my hard work. I love to do the "Snoopy Dance". I like wearing clothes and costumes. It they have bells all the better. My Mom and Dad say I'm a big boy and weigh over 100lbs but I know that I'm really a lap dog. I can prove it too. I'm a big softy and wouldn't hurt a fly but if I have to, I'll defend myself with my secret weapon the "Whirling Derrière" *patent pending

At day care...I used to be affectionately known as Fat Fat Farley...but I have lost some weight but I still like it when they call me my nickname...because I know they love me. The staff at TAW say I am one of those dogs with variable play style. This means I can adapt my play style to whom ever I am playing with. I prefer it to be referred to as a "Mighty Morphing Chocolate Ranger". Are you a 4lbs Chihuahua? No problem...I'll get down on the floor and play soft and gentle. Are you a 140 lb Newfoundland? No problem...we can wrestle in the pool like crazy dogs!

One of my favorite games at day care is the pool version of treat toss. There is a big tunnel set up on the tires and the tunnel leads down into the pool. I stand on the tires and they toss a treat down the tunnel into the pool. I FLY down the tunnel and get the treat! TOO FUN.

IF YOUR DOG HAD A MAJOR IN COLLEGE WHAT WOULD IT BE:

Marine Biology: He loves the Ocean. He'll settle for lakes, streams, or even mud puddles.

He'd get a full ride scholarship as the captain of the swim team.

IF YOUR DOG WROTE A PERSONAL AD, WHAT WOULD IT SAY?

Big, handsome, loving, Chocolate Lab looking for Companionship. I like swimming, tug, chewing on sticks, and mud. Big or little, boy or girl, dog or human, all may apply (no little girls please, they freak me out). If you enjoy car rides, walks on the beach, and lots of hugs and kisses, I'm your boy.
