Quick Bio:

April 21st 1995

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.

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!

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...
