Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog

Birthday:
March 27th 2003

Likes:
Roc - the (boy) Boxer next door, eating, following scents, rolling in god-knows-what during walks, licking himself, stealing Mom's underwear and Dad's socks, baying, trying to annoy the girls, taking a shower when he stinks, licking Dad's face.

Pet-Peeves:
Almost being killed by the pitbull down the street, being sent to the "bad dog!" box for a timeout, firecrackers, cats & squirrels, getting tormented by the girls, not being allowed to steal their toys,

Favorite Toy:
Laser pointer! Or any toy that one of the girls has. Anything that he's not SUPPOSED to have.

Favorite Food:
Anything. Even some things that aren't food and things he shouldn't eat, like chicken bones, bags of chocolate, and a bottle of Rolaids.

Favorite Walk:
"Favorite"? I think he'd be unclear on the concept. Any walk where he's walking is his favorite walk.

Best Tricks:
Drooling prolifically while watching humans eat. Trying to fight his way out of a potato chip bag (see photo montage.)

Arrival Story:
His Dad wanted to have another male in the house, since the balance of power was definitely female. We went to the Bridgeport shelter and were just impressed with him. Yada yada yada, here he is. Two months later, he and Dad were attacked by a roaming pitbull in our neighborhood. Mingus was almost killed, but we realized that he was probably too dumb to know that he shouldn't have lived. He's really fine now, and we're 5-grand in debt for the vet bills on a $75 dog. (laughs) Who knew?

Bio:
Currently starring is "Brokeback Beagle", since he's deeply in love with the Boxer (also a male) next door, who seems to echo the sentiment.

Forums Motto:
"Stupid is as stupid does."
