Likes: 'Oog', our year old cat, Mom, stretching out in 'sun spots' on the floor, kisses, greenies, and snuggling,
Pet-Peeves: Bonking his head ALL THE TIME!, hates being without mom, going out to do his business in the cold or rain, the vacuum cleaner, being disturbed from a nap and...'why won't the cat's play with me?'
Favorite Toy: 'MaMa-Kitty', as stuffed cat that he suckles on and kneeds his front paws like a cat! It's the cutest thing! Cat's toys, anything cat related, a kong with treats inside, or anything else he can stick his teeth in.... ripping up paper and pillow stuffing
Favorite Food: The cat's 'stinky fish bisquits' and 'can' time at night, greenies, carrots, grass, (he's our salad dog which is appropriate for we are vegetarians), popcorn with cayenne pepper, fig neutons and cat poop
Favorite Walk: Down to the mailbox or the studio...not much of a hiker, it's not long till he wants to be carried
Best Tricks: He is good at giving kisses, tackling and maulling Oog, good at yoga; especially the sun salutation when he first wakes up
Arrival Story: I make and sell pet pottery for a living (http://www.cheerspottery.com/pets .htm) and was attending my very first dog show as vendors. I gravitated toward the Boston's and one of the breeder's dog responded to me, which apparently he doesn't often do. The breeder recognized me as potential good mom for a 'bent' puppy she had. His neck was bent (although I later x-rayed him to find he's got a malformation of the spine); therefore, he was 'not worthy of showing or breeding'. In fact, there was a heated argument among the breeders about how he should have been put down. The next day she showed up with the puppy and gave him to me, the best gift anyone has ever given me! He was tiny, could hardly walk a straight line, was knocking that huge head on everything...although his tilted head just made him all the cuter; it was love at first sight. After a week in a loving home, he made lots of progress, and was actually running in the backyard without too much stumbling, although he remains a bit bobily. He's a good little pup, very sweet in character and lots of laughs...and oh boy, does he love his mom!
Bio: Bender left me just a few hours after midnight of the new 2014 year, my world will never be the same without him. He brought me 10 years of pure joy, i worshiped the ground he walked on and felt his love back, it was pure & unconditional love. He is already greatly missed.
