   Leave a bone for Trooper

Troo, Buddy, Troopis

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

December 11th 1997

Following my people around, going on pet therapy visits to the hospital, I especially like the veterans at the VA hospital!

The vacuum cleaner must die! I attack it. I also hate when someone wakes me from my beauty sleep.

Favorite Toy:
tennis ball, no, probably food

Favorite Food:
McDonald's french fries

Favorite Walk:
in the country in Michigan or on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. I love the beach, it washes the city dirt off my paws. But I don't go in past my tail, I hate getting my fluffly tail wet, it's so embarassing!

Best Tricks:
Begging for food and stealing food, sleeping on my mom's down pillows even though I'm not supposed to.

Arrival Story:
I got Trooper when he was almost 1 year old. He was basically nuts, very poorly socialized, and afraid of his own shadow. After about 6 months of patient training, he was a completely different dog. Painfully shy before, he now does therapy work, happily greeting complete strangers every month at the hospital...

Trooper used to have two brothers, Elwood, a dachshund, and Dakota, and Australian Shepherd. Both have been gone a couple of years and Trooper was alone for 2 years. He like his big city living by himself, but we recently added Calvin, the Australian Shepherd, and they have become good buddies. Trooper wasn't thrilled at first, but now hates to be apart from Cal.

Forums Motto:
I love to stay in luxury hotels

I've Been On Dogster Since:
