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!
Name: Buggz Cashmanilla
Age: I’m a handsome guy of the age of 101 human years (14.5 doggy years!)
Location: Vancouver Island in British Columbia – eh!

My name is Buggz (pronounced Bugs) Cashmanilla (a mix of my human mom & dads last names). When I was born I couldn’t use my back legs but taught myself to prop them up and hop, hence the name Buggz! My dad tells people I was raised by wild Jack Rabbits and most believe him!! LOL….Humans are so gullible!
The picture to the right is of me wearing my smoking jacket. I was getting ready for dinner with the folks..actually it was to keep me warm after a bath. When I grow my hair long my dad puts around my neck a big gold chain and then mom (Ladybuggz) calls me a Stud Muffin cause I look Italian even though I’m a Chinese Shz-itzu! I have a few girlfriends, my fav is Molly a big Golden Lab! She used to live next door until they moved away. She would stand over me and do that silly dance with the hip twerking, It always made the humans laugh, but I loved it! LOL…she’s funny! Here she is this year in a santa hat! UPDATE: Unfortunately my sweet girlfriend Molly passed away January 3, 2017. I’m totally heartbroken. But I know she’s now an angel watching over all of us.
My mom and dad loved to swim so they (before they had a car) would put me in a home-made carrying bag and smuggle me onto the buses! No one knew, it was like being a secret agent! So we would travel around all over and I would follow my human dad to the end of the earth if I had to! Once I jumped off a 20 ft. rock bluff after my dad told me to stay put, but I had to jump in cause I thought he needed help, but it was me that needed help cause I got caught in a current and started floating down the river! My dad caught me and saved me, I was so happy!My favorite swimming technique is using only my front feet, my back legs are always tucked under my belly so it’s a real Dog paddle! Petey was a prissy little dog, never going in over his knee’s…he didn’t know what he was missing!
Last year mom entered me in the “Purina Together Awards” for regular animals that help their humans (cause both my mom & dad are disabled). Out of all of Canada, I came in 9th! One of my pictures is of me & my dad….he looks kind of scary with that big red beard but he’s a pussy cat! We (Petey,dad & I) once had a beard growing contest (below) I think I won!
Mom made us cut it off cause it was always full of food! She’s a real pest…always brushing my teeth and putting eye drops in my eye’s and taking me to that dreaded man with the white coat that pokes and prods me. But I guess when you get my age that kind of thing happens! I have to rely on my mom & dad to carry me down the stairs to poop and pee now cause I can’t see the stairs anymore..it’s embarrassing ! I’ve fallen down them a few times but luckily I’m what mom & dad call me a Sack of Spuds…I just roll!! (Spuds are my favorite snack..especially french fries) I’m not allowed to eat them anymore so I’m kind of sad about that!
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
