Quick Bio:
-purebred

Birthday:
January 2nd 2002

Likes:
Being in "the middle," the dog park puppy pool, barking at strangers out the window and threatening inanimate objects, licking freshly showered legs, dipping his bottom half in cold water-filled pools or tubs, and being the center of attention.

Pet-Peeves:
threatening inanimate objects, being brushed, bathed, or ignored; walking by the pet store, but not actually going in; the shifty-eyed Shiba Inu who walks on my block; thunder and lightening

Favorite Toy:
anything round and squeaky; balls, balls, balls, balls, BALLS!!

Favorite Food:
Chicken, Chicken, CHICKEN!! FRIED CHICKEN?!? And oh, I like Baa baa Q's, the juice from canned tuna, and bully sticks; don't you dare cook a potroast and not share with me!

Favorite Walk:
Central Park and any place with a lot of snow!!!

Best Tricks:
the blank stare he gives me when I tell him to "come."

Arrival Story:
I was born in the far land you call Hungary. There, after being weened from my biological mother, I decided to set out across the treacherous Atlantic Ocean in search of a new perhaps, easier life. I eventually reached the island of Manhattan, setting camp on the Upper East Side, waiting for my true soulmate of a companion to happen by. Soon, she came to me beaten by life, tired of always being alone, herself in search for a true friend to share her life and dreams with. Our eyes met and it was true love. A whirlwind of romance ensued. She took me home, gave me treats, toys, and a warm bed to sleep in. She has exposed me to so much more than I could have ever imagined. So here we live, on the west side of the island, keeping each other in perfect balance and never letting loneliness or abandonment come into our hearts again.

Bio:
I am a very idosyncratic dog and have the personality of a spoiled, co-dependent 10 year-old. That said, I'm certainly not without my charm. I'm generally shy around strangers, but if we've spent some quality time together in the past, I'll never forget you and always jump for joy at your arrival. But, don't you ignore me or I'll start barking at you until you acknowledge me!! I am the self-appointed watchdog for my building. I alert Mom whenever anyone is across the street or if someone rings the bell. I am also part of the doggie underground railroad and bark really loud at the window sometimes to keep the message going. Let's see. .. I'm the MOST popular dog at my run . . .no really I am! When I am there, everyone wants to play with me and sometimes I can have three dogs on me at once. But that can get annoying, so sometimes, I run to my Mom for protection.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
November 21st 2003 More than 11 years!
