Speed Bump, Smelly, Stinky, Goofy Boy, Molasses Dog, Buddy, Hey You, Problem Child, Devil Dog the Hound from @%##

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

Rabbits, Squirrels, Fleecy squeaky toys that can be gutted, the squeakers from the gutted toys, did I mention rabbits?, sleeping on Mom's bed, sleeping on Mom's couch, barking at the wall for no apparent reason, doggie play dates with King of Pet Care

Cats - even when they're sleeping they're scary, loud noises, wind, thunder, fireworks, sleeping on dog bed, the word No

Favorite Toy:
fleecy toys with squeakers - but not after they have been gutted, then they are no fun at all, red laser pointer - he will chase it till he collapses. He wakes up in the middle of the night looking for it.

Favorite Food:
Anything other than the yucky prescription Z/D food I have to eat. Unfortuantely, Mom keeps me away from the good stuff.

Favorite Walk:
Shadyside, stores in Shadyside that let me go inside, the Oh Yeah! ice cream store, Frick Park, Mellon Park, any route with previous rabbit/squirrel encounters

Best Tricks:
Speak, Give Paw, Sit, Lay Down, Wait

Arrival Story:
A friend of a friend rescued Riley from a kill shelter the day he was to be put down, and called me because I once said I liked bassets. One look and I was a goner.

Forums Motto:
If only I had opposable thumbs.
