Spotlight Thursday – Meet Sulley… AKA Angel Pants

10 Nov

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Angel Pants will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥

Name:  Sulley (AKA:  Angel Pants)

Age:  3 years young

Location:  Georgia

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I got her but he’s gonna take some work.

How did you meet your parents?  My mom was looking at puppies online and when she saw me she fell in love.  My daddy picked me up, and I sang to him the whole way to the doctor’s office.  I sang so good that he called my mom to let her hear me too.  I played with dad all day.  Mom got home from work and “licked”, she called it kisses, all over me the rest of the night.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The day they found out I was deaf, they let me stay and started talking to me with their hands.

How did your parents find out you were deaf and how do they accommodate your needs?  The doctor told dad that a lot of puppies like me, all white, were deaf.  Something about the lack of pigment and nerves not developing.  After about a week, they knew I couldn’t hear them say they loved me, so mom found other ways to show me.  I am very smart so it didn’t take long for mom to show me a hand sign and then show me what she wanted me to do.  I learned sit first.  I didn’t bark a lot and was kind of a sneak around the house so they had to keep a close eye on me.  Mom didn’t want to miss me telling her I had to go potty so she got this idea from other parents about a bell.  Mom hung the bell by the back door and every time she took me out, she would take my paw and tap the bell.  I couldn’t hear it, but I knew what I was supposed to do.  I learned img_7864that when I went potty in the house, I didn’t get a yummy treat; but when I tapped the bell I got a treat; when we got outside I got a treat and when I went potty outside, I got even more treats.  It was great so I just kept doing it.  Who doesn’t like treats?  I have learned lots of signs like kisses, I love you, lay down, speak, shake, dance, sit up, outside, peanut butter and of course come here (mom uses that a lot because I still tend to sneak around a little).

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I tore up my stuffed squirrel and swallowed the tail with the squeaker.   I was really a good boy and still am.  I learned the rules pretty quick but there was this one time….Let me say that IF I did chew on something, it always belonged to dad (hehehe).

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Definitely mom!  She says I do no wrong.  I “help” her around the house and love her with my sweet eyes and yummy, slobbery kisses.

What’s your favorite thing to do?  My favorite thing to do is go where ever mom is and play outside with dad.  When he runs at me I get so excited.  I run in circles around the yard and then run back at him.  He is kind of old so I let him think he catches me sometimes.  Me and mom know though.  I like playing with my boxer fur sister, Tess, too.  When I sit in MY chair like that, I’m just trying not to fall asleep because I don’t want to miss anything.  I’m a laid back guy that watches over the house and keeps mom and dad guessing.  We learn new things everyday.  Right now I’m learning how to “search” like the K-9s do.  We just started, but I’m doing good.  I keep mom busy because I get board easy, I don’t have the heart to tell her that it’s her that’s being “trained”.  Me and dad know though.

Tell me a funny:  So…mom and dad were in the driveway building this big box.  Dad had gotten into the trunk of his work car to get something and a few minutes later they heard the doors to the car lock.  Dad said it probably locked automatically after a few minutes.  So, a few minutes later the doors unlocked, then locked, unlocked, then locked…you get the picture.  I had dad’s remote and when mom came in and saw me she laughed and laughed.  Whew, I thought for sure I was in trouble, but she took the remote, told me “no” (shook her finger and looked at me funny); kissed my nose and signed that she loved me.

What’s your favorite treat?  I am really a picky eater but I love my peanut butter and fresh strawberries.  I don’t get a lot of the same food that mom and dad eat but every once in a while mom will give me a couple of Cheetos and dad will give me a bite of his Popsicle.  Me and Tess just had our first Dairy Queen ice cream cone this past weekend.  Yummy!


What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They assume I am mean when they see me and that something is wrong because I am all white.


 Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    Awww – we need stories like this to warm our hearts right now – and to hear that a deaf dog got a good home is heartwarming.

    Oh my dawg, is there a cuter white face around? My favorite dog growing up was a white boxer and she kept us all in stitches and was the sweetest if not the biggest dog we ever had.

    You are a total character, S. I love how smart you are. Plus tricky. Eating a toy squirrel tail with a squeaker in it sounds like something a cartoon dog would do. Are you a cartoon??

    Love and licks,

    I see from the last picture, Angel Pants, that you are trying to do something about your all white status. I am sure, though, that a good bath fixed that. What a sweetie you are, and your pawrents sound wonderful, too. Thanks, Bacon, for this great post.
