Everything. No matter what it is, it is the best thing EVER to Finny. Go for a walk? Best thing ever. Get scolded? Best thing ever. Dinner? Best thing ever...

The word "no" in any form whatsoever. Soft, loud, hand signal. He hates it.

Favorite Toy:
Finn isn't so much a toy boy. He loves a chewy treat, but typically only plays with a toy (normally a stuffy-less stuffy) for a few moments.

Favorite Food:
Finny is currently on MMillenium grain free.

Favorite Walk:
Finn loves the dog park and all the dogs, big or small. That's his walk/run/frolic of choice! Update: as soon as he stops being all "humpy-boy", he'll get more dogpark time. He does love a good walk, though.

Best Tricks:
At 19 months, Finnegan sits and waits and he sits up and touches for a treat.

Arrival Story:
Finnegan is the first puppy project of the new life that is Kevin and Lorraine. Both puppy people, we definitely needed to have a dog of our own as we moved forward together. We found the fabulous Finn-Monster on Petfinder. He was in a shelter in Tennessee and we had him pulled by a local rescue group. With things a bit "unsettled" in our camp, we were fortunate to have been able to have him fostered for about a month as we got a place to actually bring the little guy home to. We had been in our place all of one day when we made the drive from Akron to Cookeville, TN to pick him up. He is the most amazing little guy. He's a perfect gentleman in the car, gets along with everyone and everything and doesn't have any kind of a mean bone in his body. And while he is a complete pain in the ass sometimes, it is truly great to have a puppy to teach and train. He is one fantastic puppy dog!

Finnegan was apparently dropped off at the shelter with the rest of his family. His mom was supposedly a red and white border collie and his dad a black and white. We're waiting to see what he grows into. There is picture evidence that he could indeed be a full-blooded border collie, but we'll just wait it out and see for ourselves.
