Quick Bio:
-mutt

Likes:
Eating, primarily. She also enjoys sleeping quite a bit, especially if she finds an article of clothing laying on the floor. She will always abandon her dog bed for the chance to sleep on a stray sweatshirt.

Pet-Peeves:
People looking inside her ears. She loves to have them scratched and petted, but if you even mention looking inside them, she'll get up and go hide.

Favorite Toy:
Puppets, gloves, mittens, socks, sleeves, anything that covers my hands/feet.

Favorite Food:
What *isn't* her favorite food?

Favorite Walk:
Her favorite place to walk is the fence that runs between our apt. complex and the local zoo. I think the smells over there are the most interesting to her, but I like seeing the emus and leopards.

Best Tricks:
She is really very well behaved. So well behaved in fact, that you can leave a plate of hamburgers on the ground right in front of her, and if you command "No. Stay." , she'll sit right there and leave them absolutely untouched.

Arrival Story:
Tasha was one of 5 puppies to be born to a stray inside a hollow tree in the lawn of a local hospital. One of the nurses found the family, took them home, and then put an article in the paper about them and offered the puppies for adoption. We just happened to be lucky enough to be one of the families chosen to have one. She was our first choice, and she's been a happy member of the family ever since. We're not sure what she is, but our best guess is some sort of German Sheppard/Collie/Spaniel mix. Many people [mostly children] think she resembles a wolf or coyote, though.

Bio:
Tasha's getting up there in years, and as a result, her hearing is starting to go. She usually likes to follow me around the house from room to room, but sometimes she falls asleep and doesn't hear me get up to leave. When she finally awakes to find me gone, she goes to find me, but her lack of hearing hinders her search. I often come back to find her staring at a closed door and crying because she believes that I am in there and not letting her in, and she doesn't even hear me walking up behind her. It's a little sad, but it's also really funny to creep up behind her and then shout her name or tap her on the back. It always gives her quite a shock, but she's always very excited to have finally found me.
