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. Toby will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥
Age: I am twelve years old. My birthday was July 18th.
Location: I live in Hampton, Ga with my Mom, dad, and my brother, Max( he’s 4 and he doesn’t look like me but he’s brother all the same.
Web/Blog Page: My Mom’s Facebook Page
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Hmmm my first thoughts when I met my new parents. I think I was about six and when my other dad brought me to their house I didn’t realize I was staying. When I got there I ran up the stairs and all over the house and then something happened. My new Mom took me for a walk. I peed on all the mailboxes in the neighborhood. Oh I hope it’s OK I said peed. It was so much. Then we went back to the house and I looked all over the house for my dad (now my former dad) and I couldn’t find him no where. I laid at the top of the stairs and waited for him to come back. I was sad. My new mom petted me trying to make feel better but I just wanted my mom and dad to get me. Then later my new dad came in and I barked at him and then you know what happened? My new dad and mom took me for a walk and I peed on the mailboxes again. It took me a little while to realize my first mom and dad weren’t coming back but now I wouldn’t give anything for my new mom and dad now( well actually they’re not new anymore). I still get to see my old my mom and dad sometimes, which is great, but I prefer my new mom and dad.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? I’m not sure. I know love the things my mom and dad do with me. They will give me belly rubs when I ask. I get a lots of treats. They even let me have food from their plate. I love my mom and dad and love being here with them forever.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? My “Oh No moment” is when I just have to poop in the house when mom and dad are gone. I have to cover it up so they don’t see it. I use some of Max’s toys to cover it with in hopes they don’t see it but somehow they still see and scold me. But when it’s my mom, she’ll feel bad and still give me a treat. I so love her.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? My mom is so wrapped around my paws. She will do anything for me. I just look her and she says, “OK Toby, but only one treat”. I finish that one and I look at her again and she’ll give me another one. She picks me up and holds me whenever I want her to. Not my Dad. He’ll say I have enough.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? The biggest misconception humans think about me when a car starts without me in it and I start barking at it and I won’t let them leave. They think I am scared of the car but that’s not it at all. I just want to go for a ride. I don’t know why they won’t take me for a ride. I really am a fun guy.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
