Bio: We adopted Tug from an animal shelter to keep Trixie company while we were at work. We didn't realize he was just a puppy. He turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. He is very independent and a nonconformist, and very funny. He loves to hide his treasures. The very first time I gave him a treat he immediately took it outside and buried it. Now he hides things inside - in the couch, inside shoes in the closet, and so on. He won my husband, Paul's heart a few weeks after we got him when he brought a snail in and dropped it on Paul's ottoman. Paul took the snail back outside. 2 minutes later Tug came trotting and and dropped the snail on Paul's ottoman again. Paul took it back outside again. Tug brougth the snail in a 3rd time and dropped it on the ottoman, so this time Paul put the snail on the other side of the fence so Tug couldn't get it. Paul realized the snail was a "love offering", and Tug's place in our family was secured.
