Likes: Playing with her ball and all of her other toys. She likes the smaller toys that are her size that have bells and make noise. She especially loves her after bath mania... but she doesn't like the initial bath itself.
Pet-Peeves: chewing on stuff she shouldn't be chewing on
Favorite Toy: Little fuzzy ball; she throws it up and catches it herself! She really likes it when I toss it to her if she is willing to give it up!!!
Favorite Food: People food... chicken
Favorite Walk: Around our neighborhood
Best Tricks: Tessa loves rolling over for treats. She also knows how to sit, laydown, dance, come to me on command or stay on command. She's such a good girl!!!
Arrival Story: We fell in love with her at the pet store ~ like she was my baby!!!
My doctor wrote me a note so that I could have her in my no pet policy apartment home. The note describer her as a therapeutic companion dog.... and yes, she has saved a lot of trips to any therapist for sure.
I want to share her with others who need that specail healing though you can get only from a pet; a loving dog.

Bio: She is such a wonderful addition to our family. She brings such joy and love to our home which is now her home too.
It is nice to have her happy little face come greet me every morning in bed. She likes me to bring her up into bed with me to snuggle. But, then I have to get out of bed to take her for a walk... the only downfall. But, at least it's getting me exercise too!
Forums Motto: Damn Dog
Why a damn dog?: I sometimes refer to Tessa as a damn dog because she chews up my shoes and other valuables. She is a no good damn dog when she does that! But, I still love her dearly!
