Quick Bio:
-purebred

Likes:
eating, killing bugs, curling up like a donut, cuddling, burrowing under the blankets especially in Sarah's bed, collecting all the toys in one place and keeping them to myself

Pet-Peeves:
dieting. having my nails clipped. it REALLY sucks. but it's a little better now that Sarah knows how to do it and doesn't cut to the quick... and she feeds me fake bacon the entire time

Favorite Toy:
her stuffed squeaky giraffe...

Favorite Food:
meat, just about any vegetable or fruit (i've even changed my mind about grapes- they're pretty good), yogurt

Favorite Walk:
places that you have to drive to (not the same-ole' walk in our neighborhood)

Best Tricks:
killing bugs with lightning speed at the first sound of Sarah's displeasure upon seeing the bug (mostly camel crickets, they are very displeasing!!)

Arrival Story:
I was born in pittsboro and had a bunch of brothers and sisters. Sarah came to look at us, because she really wanted a dog. She wanted to get one from the animal shelter, but she was being sneaky because she lived in a duplex where you weren't supposed to have pets. The animal shelter calls to make sure it's allowed, which she thinks is a good idea in general, but you know. So she came to look at us and pick a dog, and she picked me because I was really energetic and healthy-looking and I remember she was pretty impressed when I ran over to the doormat and started playing with the corner of the rug and thrashing it around like I was killing it. I showed her on the way home that I could be cute and cuddly, too. I slept on her lap the whole way home to Chapel Hill. Then she tried to put me in a crate that night and of course I cried. It wasn't long before I was snuggled up with her under the covers, sleeping soundly through the night. I slept in her bed every night after that. I didn't even pee in the bed... I waited until the afternoon to do that! I was pretty good about not barking when the landlords came by, which was rare. I can see a squirrel through the window from like a mile away, though. Now we live in our very own house, so I get to bark as much as I want. I really like this setup, too, because I bark and then the big dog does the intimidating. It's great fun.
