Besides me, that would be anything edible.
She hates that I have to work, and she cannot join me.
Butch's life became complete when they invented the teeny tiny tennis ball!
ANYTHING! She'll eat anything - apples, oranges, broccoli ... you name it ...
Butchie's prior person took her sky-diving. (They did everything together.) While the 2-year-old poodle survived the experience quite well (she thought everyone did crazy stuff like that), the 70-year-old human did not fare as well; she became aware of a cardiac condition and had to make some major changes in her life ... meanwhile, I was looking for a little dog, had a motorcycle but no car, and everyone I talked to about potential adoption said 'No way' ... but Butchie's person said 'Hmm ... You might just be the one!' Butch and I have been happily glommed onto each other since. That was 8 years ago.
Butch had her spine fractured, her ribs smashed, and was lucky to escape with her life (her sister Cassidy did not fare so well) when a big dog came into our yard and shook her like a rag toy. She was temporarily paralyzed, but her poodle spirit kept right on, straight ahead. She has amazed everyone who witnesses her recovery - including our vet - with her spirit and pure determination. I thought I would be adjusting to life with a dog on wheels, but 3 years later, I have a dog that isn't much different from the dog I had before. I try to be more like her every day because she is the strongest, most spirited, positive person I've ever met - in a dog suit or otherwise. (Update) Butch lived a very happy 8 more years after the mauling. She never looked back, she loved life and lived each day to its fullest. My goal in life is to be just like her!
She's a toy, curly rottweiler.
