Ultimate couch potato until it's time to play, lay in the sunshine, or go for a walk or hike! She also likes to hunt and chase small creatures, steal toys from her "sister" Daisy, and beg for people food.
Motorcycles, garbage trucks, UPS & FedEx trucks (not school buses or dump trucks though, go figure), fireworks, and being touched or humped by Daisy.
Chuck-It, any toy Daisy might be playing with at the time, and her Taco Bell talking stuffed animals, "Yo Quiero Taco Bell"!
Spot's Stew, marrow bones, tuna, cheese & milk (cat in a past life?)
Any and every walk is a favorite walk - in the neighborhood, Lewisville Park, Lacamas Heritage Trail, and especially Mt St Helens and Mt Hood hikes.
Gives one paw, then the other, then both at the same time all in hyper warp speed!
My dad went to work one morning and found Onyx tied to the fence that surrounded his shop and the building next to it. There was also a suitcase sitting there next to her. He let her loose as there wasn't much leash and he thought it was cruel (he's not a big dog lover, so it must've looked bad for him to say so). The dog stayed around the area that day and my dad later found out that she had been owned by one of the guys that worked at the place next door - the guy's wife kicked him out the night before and left the dog and his suitcase full of clothes waiting for him at work. Yes, she was left like that overnight. No food or water and this was in Florida where alligators and snakes prevail. This was also in a big industrial area of town (explains why she freaks out to this day when she sees a garbage, recycling, UPS or FedEx truck) so it had to be scary for her to be there all night. The place next door had a "shop watchdog" which was a massive wolf-dog hybrid. It is possible Onyx is the daughter of the wolf-dog hybrid (I was never able to get this info from the previous owner) as these people weren't really responsible pet owners - obviously if they owned an illegal animal and also treated another animal like trash by leaving it overnight on a busy road, I highly doubt they had the wolf-dog hybrid neutered! Well, the wolf-dog wasn't about to let Onyx have any of its food, but Onyx wasn't going anywhere either and my dad didn't mind having her around. My ex worked for my dad and they both fed her daily and gave her attention. At the time all this was going on, I didn't know anything about it as no one had told me about the dog. About a week later, my boyfriend came home and had me come outside and there was this beautiful black dog with white eyes sitting perfectly in the yard facing our front door. Awww! It took me a few days to come up with her name because it had to be right for her personality. She is a brilliant dog, sometimes too smart for her own good, extremely sweet and friendly, just loves people sooooo much, and sometimes she is fiercely independent and demanding. She is a real "gem" and she is the love of my life!
She is an adventurous doggie - she made a cross-country move with me several years ago from Florida to Washington state - we drove. She's been on lots of road trips, and to plenty of national forests and national parks. She's been on boats, 5000 feet up on Mt. St. Helens, in the local newspaper, and in an amateur photography book - she's a real renaissance dog!
