Quick Bio:
-purebred

Birthday:
April 21st 1995

Likes:
In a word - squirrels. I love to bark at 'em, chase 'em and wrassle with 'em. Digging is fun, but I then have to take a bath which, as we all know, is no fun at all.

Pet-Peeves:
Don't touch my feet. I'm also afraid of open windows for some strange reason. Therefore, it often gets hot in the house.

Favorite Toy:
Any sock I can steal from the dirty clothes pile. If I get a stuffed animal, I tend to become obsessive over it until I drive Thom and Chris crazy. Don't they understand it MUST be destroyed?

Favorite Food:
Peanut butter is good. But most of all, I just like to lick the plates after dinner. That way you get a good combo of all the flavors in a meal.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere. I have no concept of time or place.

Best Tricks:
I can fall asleep while licking my butt.

Arrival Story:
I came from a family of right-wing Christian fundamentalists who bred dogs for donations to their cause. It made my dad Thom want to puke, but he got me for a fifty dollar donation to some missionary group in Haiti. He was able to overlook my evangelical youth and now I live with two daddies!

Bio:
I live with my playmate Helmut. He's pretty old and doesn't like to play like I do. He doesn't even like to chase squirrels! Imagine that! I still like to treat him like a parent and try to make him throw up some food by sticking my snout down his throat. Other than that, I mostly just sleep on the couch under the leopard print blanket, cuddle with Thom & Chris and look out the glass doors wondering what the unfortunate dogs are doing tonight...
