Likes: Mornings. Kissing the Kitty. WALKS. SNACKS!!!!! Hugs and Kisses (human owner hates kisses - I try and contain myself). Toes (again w/ the human thing).
Pet-Peeves: Baths. Car Rides (I'm better after the trip to Montana). When the cat can't go for walks during the daytime. When her brother teases her w/ the SNACKS that he hoards.
Favorite Toy: Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear! and the other Teddy Bear! and the one that is pink in the same shape that looks like a Teddy Bear - NO it isn't!
Favorite Food: SNACKS!! Wet cat food when I get the chance - watch out for the ears. Greenies. Human food - I don't care I'll eat ANYTHING.
Favorite Walk: Anywhere - as long as I can be in front of my brother. An hour - or at least 5 miles preferred
Best Tricks: Hugs. Kissing the Kitty. Taking care of humans when sick. UP. Bang (I jump straight up in the air)
Arrival Story: I was sleeping and some humans came in. My brother was out getting attention. I had to find out what was going on. The female human entity took one look at me and KNEW I was the smart one. We became best of friends until the male human entity made noises and they both left. I was sad - but also kind of tired. 8 weeks old is a tough age if anyone hasn't told you. The humans came back as I knew they would (I had been told already). I was sad to say goodbye to my litter mates but as we left I noticed my brother Scooter in the same crate as I was. HAPPY DOG DAYS!! Car ride home - let's not mention the undignity
Bio: I love, love, love the mornings!!! HOW my human and I connected I have no idea. Good thing I chose her. She'd rather hang in bed w/ my lazy brother Scooter - while I want to sniff, sniff, sniff and lay in the morning breezes!! Snow last year - fun, fun, fun!! 4:30 in the morning is what I prefer - my human keeps insisting that the only time that time exists is if you have been really irresponsible and you are just seeing the bed for the first time!! grumble*grumble*grumble*. I'm really good at pestering the human into giving me SNACKS - just by pure annoyance.
Personality of a morning Papillon: Activity - when can we start??? How about as soon as the sun comes up - 4:30 works for me. No - too early - ok I'll hide my head under the covers. Kissing the Kitty - fun game. Bossing my brother Scooter around - he never wants to move unless we are on a WALK. Then has to "mark" everywhere we've been - like we're not coming back tomorrow - let's move!! Sleeping at Queen spot on the bed - best in the world. Visiting human friends Lou Ann, Patrick, George and our dog friend Booger. We also like Pebbles the kitten - but only because she thinks she's a dog. *note to self - she will be bigger than us soon...very soon*. I'm smarter than my brother Scooter and try not to prove him up too often. It might have to do w/ the fact that he was the "runt"?? But he is since bigger than I by a lowely inch - and 4 oz. (can you believe the vet said I -... I... am... "fat"?). Once again the Scooter "cute" factor kicked in. Sleeping next to the human heat element at night is my favorite - especially when Scooter and I spread out to consume 100% of the bed. So comfy. Silly Humans ~ question to self, do I REALLY want to be a human in my next life? I think I need a Greenie to contemplate.
Bladder Stones: I was diagnosed with Bladder Stones in 2007. After surgery where the vet removed 7 large stones and numerous small ones (mom wanted to know if she could get me to make pearls - sheesh mom) the results came back. Since they will re-occur without the proper diet (special prescription only).. Scooter loves it. It's also high in calories so his butt had better watch it's girth BOL.
Top 10 Things to do When Faced With a BATH, by the Papillon Pack.
9. "Shower" on Mom before the towel can be fully wrapped around your wet body.
8. Make a break for it when you are all soapy and the bathroom door is open.
7. Start drinking the water as soon as you are dumped in the tub.
6. Run to the bed, rip down the covers and dry yourself off.
5. Zoomies around the backyard with wet feet and come back inside with muddy paws.
4. Perch on the back of the couch soaking it and then move onto other furniture to speed up the drying process.
3. Rub your wet dog body all over the side of the couch and only rug in the house until your Mom is on her "last" nerve.
2. Pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant at your Mom until she declares dog breath and wet dog smell will be the "death" of her; just you wait and see.
1. That pile of laundry Mom forgot to fold before the BATH, yep one of us peed on it.
Yep, I have my Busy Bone from this morning and I will not share it with anyone. It is still fresh w/ no bite marks. I'm currently out in the backyard with it in my mouth laying in the shade watching whats going on.
