   Leave a bone for Ziggy


Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

November 24th 2010

Guarding the yard, going on walks, chewing up socks, sitting in my lap, watching TV, meeting new people, being loved on, listening to every little sound, and cuddling with me.

Not getting what he wants RIGHT when he wants it.

Favorite Toy:
A rag tied up into knots, so we can play tug-of-war. He chews all his real toys up to shreds.

Favorite Food:
He's a very picky eater, but he LOVES Weather's orgional chewy candies, and peppermints.

Favorite Walk:
We take a daily afternoon walk through the peach field, he loves it.

Best Tricks:
He's extremely sneaky, he can open gates, open doors by jumpin on them & turnin tha handles, sneaking clothes out of the hamper, & out-smarting all the humans.

Arrival Story:
My family didn't want me to get Ziggy, they were wanting to get a purebred Lab, just like we've always gotten. But when I saw Ziggy's picture i just HAD to have him, so I secretly went and got him, stayed alnight at a friends house, then brought him home the next day as a surprise. He was 6 weeks old [i know i know, too early] & the first mutt that we'd ever gotten. At first they were pissed off, but once they got to know Ziggy they absolutely fell in love with him, just like I did the first time I laid eyes on him... Now that we've had him for almost 2 years he is a HUGE part of our family! We all love him very much.

About Ziggy::
Ziggy is perfect. There is not a single thing that I would change about him... He's extremely affectionate, always has to be touching somebody. And even though he's 90 pounds he thinks he's a lap dog... And since he is always so alert and doesn't miss a beat, he knows everything and is extremely intelligent... Ziggy is fearless. He's unlike any dog I've ever met, within tha firt few months of having him he was teaching Hulk [who i've had for yearsss] how to open our gates that keep them from getting out, & a bunch of other stuff. He's a mischievous little mutt but he's so sweet. He loves meeting people, he'll jump right up into a strangers car if we'd let him. I always say you don't get the dog that you want* you get the dog that you need* and when I got my Zig he was just what this family needed, he's pulled us back together & he's helped me through all my struggles. And for that, I owe him my life.
