Arrival Story:
Talos' first family named him Sugar as a puppy. He's a socialized and content dog today because they did such a great job raising him. However, he and their other dogs stopped getting along as well. Talos' family knew that the best for all the dogs was to give him away to another family that could give him the attention he deserves and become a spoiled only child. We had been looking for a while for shelter and rescue dogs, but hadn't had much luck because we live in an apartment and are first time pet owners. Smaller dogs were adopted quickly in shelters and having no yard or pet experience placed us lower on rescue group waiting lists. However, after a couple weeks of disappointment, we connected with Talos' family on the internet. We all met and it was the perfect match.

Bio:
My name is pronounced: TAH-lohs. Talos was renamed after the main character in the the Pulitzer Prize winning novel, All the King's Men, by Robert Penn Warren. Although in the original publishing, the character's name is Willie Stark, the version edited by Noel Polk uses the name "Willie Talos" as originally written in Penn Warren's manuscript. I have epilepsy.

A couple of weeks ago, we got Talos a new wire kennel. It's all padded in case he has seizures and stocked with toys. However he doesn't like being there when we're at work, preferring to wander around the house. So last night we get home and I go upstairs to let him out. He's not in his cage. The door is still locked. It's like he's vaporized.

I go into the bathroom, the garbage is over turned and chewed on. Definite dog activity. On the way down the stairs I see the kitchen trash has been unlocked and over turned and chewed on. Still no dog. The hall closet was left open so the dog food bin was unlocked and open. Then my boyfriend hears a stirring in the downstairs bathroom. Voila! A proud and happy dog is found. He must have wandered in but pushed the door closed as he tried to exit.

Later we check the kennel again. It is suppose to collapse onto itself to flatten. Most dogs would push out and not be able to get out. Our dog pulled in and wriggled through the opening.

This morning his poop had egg shells and pieces of trash bag.
