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!
Age: 9 – but I’ve heard 9 is the new 5

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? When Mom walked by my cage, I was saying the word, “Please. Please. Please. Please….” The first 82 times, she didn’t hear me, but then finally, MAGICALLY – she did, and she said, “This is the one! This is my new dog!”
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? After living on the street and in a shelter for the first few years of my life, the night Mom brought me home and I popped onto the couch, and she laughed at me and hugged me, I knew that cuddly place was the perfect home for me.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? One morning, when I first came here, Mom forgot to push in her chair, when she got up to get something from the kitchen. I hopped onto her chair, climbed onto the table, and TOOK HER MEDICINE. It was delicious. It was less delicious a few minutes later when ASPCA Poison Control told her how to induce vomiting. My advice: If you’re lucky enough to get on the table, skip the pills and go straight for the scrambled eggs.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I don’t have a dad, so Mom is wrapped double-strength around my paws. I can tell because whenever I turn my big brown eyes on her and stare with that blank look I have, treats and snuggles come my way. She thinks I’m irresistible!
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? People think I am tortured when Mom dresses me up. You know – because I’m a dog and dogs are…. well…. dogs. But the truth is that like my friend Houdini I LOVE dressing up! When Mom puts a dress on me, I know that means something fun is about to happen – we’re going somewhere, getting company, or doing something special. So bring on the tutus, bandanas, sundresses, and sweaters because this girl is ready to party.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
