Nicknames: Doughboy, Doughy, The Dough,Tender Toes,Sweet Pea
Birthday: November 20th 1994
Likes: He's a dog of extremes -- happy to snuggle and nap but also loves a good tug of war and playing catch with his toys.
Pet-Peeves: When someone comes over and then we go out without him.
Favorite Toy: A former teddy bear that is now fluff held together by threads. He gets very emotional if he can't find it.
Favorite Food: Carrots
Favorite Walk: Down a very dog-friendly street on Sunday morning. He refuses to leave.
Best Tricks: Waving with his two paws together. Kids love it!
Arrival Story: I was not a dog person. I was sent to pick out a dog for my boss to give to his friend. By the time I got him home, I had named him. I called my boss and he sensed I had bonded with the puppy and suggested I keep him and we get another dog for his friend.
I didn't want a dog. I thought I didn't like dogs. But something very primal took over and I knew I was NEVER going to give this dog up. He was mine. It was one of the most magical things that ever happened to me.
Darby has changed my life in so many ways -- especially inspiring me to be an artist. After several careers, I've found my passion (and founded my business DreamDogsArt.com) making photo collages of people's pets. Some of my Darby-esque work is featured here. To learn more about me and my artwork please email me :) (Family dogs listed below are his cousins and uncles.)
