Likes:
PD loves his family most of all. His favorite activities are walks, car rides, destroying his toys, rawhide bones, eating people food, swimming, and cuddling.

Pet-Peeves:
PD hates to be left out of anything. And he takes it personally when we dare to bring a bag in the house that doesn't contain a new toy. He also finds it annoying when we hide medicine in his treats, take him to the vets, or have him groomed.

Favorite Toy:
This varies day to day. He shows the most excitement for the toys that are still in the bag.

Favorite Food:
There are few foods that PD won't eat - he loves chicken, burger, steak, pizza, etc. But he gets the most enjoyment out of his nightly glass of milk.

Favorite Walk:
PD grew up with us in Boston, but now that he has his own house, he loves to walk in his yard and the woods behind his new home. There are lots of parks and trails nearby, and PD loves them all!

Best Tricks:
Sit, stay, shake, lay down, roll over, "find daddy," and "look adorable," hearing food being prepared from a mile away, but feigning deafness whenever anyone says "PD- NO!"

Arrival Story:
I was picked up by animal control when I was found wandering the streets in Raynham, MA. I was sent to the pound where I was quickly adopted by a very nice woman, who is now my nana. She took very good care of me but I was just a puppy and too young to settle down in the suburbs. I needed to be in the big city with people who appreciated my active social life. That is when I met my new parents when they came to visit my nana. We bonded immediately and they offered to take me with them back to Boston for a night. We had so much fun and missed each other so much that week, that I went back to visit them for another weekend, and then pretty soon I never left!

Bio:
The highlights of my life so far have been: 1. Getting adopted by my parents and moving with them to Boston; 2. Sitting in on classes with my Mommy during her last year at Harvard Law School (although she seemed to spend more time with me at the park than at class, but shhhh, that is a secret); 3. Being the most handsome and well behaved (and only) dog at the HLS graduation; 4. Helping Daddy go into the jewelry store and pick out Mommy's engagement ring (I am a very tough negotiator - it's all in the eyes); 5. Helping Daddy propose by insisting that we take a family walk through the Boston Common; 6. Attending my parent's wedding, and even being allowed to sit in the church, in my own pew to watch the ceremony. I was the first dog in the history of the church to do that! And my parents even held their reception at a PD-friendly mansion on the ocean so that I could come. I was in charge of supervising all of the chefs. (One of my wedding pictures was even featured in the New York Times Sophisticated Traveller when they did a story on the North End - I must have looked quite handsome in my bowtie that day because the NYT only used my picture and not my dad's ); 7. I have also been featured in the Popular Dogs Series Golden Retriever Magazine and the Boston Herald (just walking down the street in Boston). What can I say? The camera just loves me. 8. Helping my parents by our first home. Actually I really didn't do much to help them buy the house (my HLS education hasn't really paid off so far), but I am a very valuable member of the squirrel eradication/relocation program. I also have an important security role, and strictly enforce the property boundaries so that the two half-witted dogs next door don't get the wrong idea. I am also the official greeter to everyone who comes to our house and make sure everyone feels welcome and is sufficiently covered with golden fur. I LOVE my new house for so many reasons: 1. I finally have my own room! Boston was great, but I actually had to share a room with my parents. Not the best set up if I wanted to bring girls home, if you know what I mean. Now in my new house, my mommy decorated my very own room in a beach/yacht club theme. Finally a sophisticated room for a sophisticated doggie. 2. Halloween in my new home is awesome too! This year I had my very first trick-or-treaters and everything! Good thing my parents got me a SuperMan costume - all the kids are sure to be back next year! 3. I also love the parties that my parents throw at my new home! This year, for my birthday party my parents hired a cow (it was a woman in a cow costume, but I digress) deliver ice cream for a make your own sundae party. They also set up a popcorn machine, a snow cone machine, and bought me my very own cake! The two-leggers told me that I have the best parties out of all their friends (I think so too). 3. I also help my parents pick out our Christmas tree at the Christmas tree farm every year. Then we have a huge Christmas party that everyone comes too (the food is good, but I think most people come because they love to see me in my antlers). 4. And the best part of moving out of the city is that I found my first gainful employment. Every day I go to my grandma's house while my parents are at work and I supervise my grandma while she babysits. I don't really make any money per se, but my parents don't have to pay for doggie day care anymore, so I count that. It's very important that I go because my grandma counts on me to help her take care of my two-legged nieces (actually they are my cousins, but they call me Uncle PD out of respect for my age and wisdom). I make sure we stay on a strict schedule of napping and snacks, and I can make them smile just by walking by. Grandma said she would never be able to handle it without me (she counts on me to keep the floor free of cheerios and crackers. I don't let her down).
