How did you come to live with your current family?

My previous Person died suddenly, and times were very sad. My new Mom was looking for a new pack member, and had a friend with 2 dogs the same breed as me (one is my half-sister!) and of course loved them. The friend found out about me needing a new home and mentioned me to my new mom, and here I am! Turns out my half-sister and I are complete opposites, but at least we agree on how to stalk birds.

 

What Silly or Little known facts should we know about you?

 I can drag my rear legs behind me, you should see the looks on humans faces when I do it, really cracks me up! They say I am a water dog, but I don't care much for swimming.

Besides Day Care… what do you love?

People, treats, people, being pet, snoozing, people. Did I say people? I whimper with happiness when I see someone I love that I haven't seen for a while. Oh, sometimes I go jogging with the family. I am always up for a run in the woods. Did I mention how yummy chicken feed is? I know I know I have food allergies and should stay away from it, but I just have to treat myself even though I get in trouble every time.

 

What are your favorite toys or games? 

I love nose work and can always find a hidden treat. I will play with anything from 7:30-9:00pm, but am not interested in toys any other time of day unless they have food hidden inside. Sometimes Nancy swings her arms around, sort of crazy and I let her think she is almost catching me. She really likes that. Plus, I get to run zoomies all around her. It's so cute when I do that.

If you had a major in college…what would it be?

I went through a bit of a breakdown when my former Person died, so I am very curious about how brains works. I would be a psychology major, and probably become a psychiatrist and help other pups going through hard times. Or maybe Spa-ology. I sure enjoy the whole "get ready for the show" process. I think they should teach zoomies in college. They are just so fun!

If you wrote a personal ad… what would it say?  If you bring a human who pets me I will be yours forever. Just don't ever ever leave me alone. Enjoy pretending I don't notice your invitations to play, but secretly hope to partake in normal dog play activities...someday.

Other information we should know about you?

I don't let on, but I get very worried if I am left by myself. So thank goodness for Tails-a-wagging, where I don't ever have to be alone. I'm so grateful to have some buddies around even if I don't cuddle or play with them.
