What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Holy Cow, what’s that big dog doing with them?
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? I was so little, only 8 weeks old, and the first time I had ever been away from the only family I knew, including my doggie mommy and siblings. It was a bit scary at first, especially having to jump under chairs to avoid being flattened by the big, playful GSD. Then, an inspiration hit! I pulled all the dog towels into the middle of the room, piled all the dog toys on top of them, and climbed aboard, claiming everything for ME. That’s the point I knew this was MY home!
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? Hmm, there was the third pair of Mom’s flip flops that I chewed up in the same summer. She was furious, but really, how many did I have to chew up before she learned? Or maybe the time I caught a baby bird and Mom chased me the entire way around the outside of our house screaming for me to drop it. When she finally caught me the bird was dead and Mommy cried. Or maybe it was the time I got up on the kitchen table while everyone was gone and ate an entire bowl of red cherries. Mom made me vomit when she came home. Yep, pick one.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I would say Mommy, because we have always been together, through everything, and I know she probably loves me best. But I have to say Daddy, because when Mom doesn’t take me to work, I am able to control his day from his home office. Stop what you are doing and…let me out, let me in, give me a treat, pay attention to me, let me out again, let me in again, give me lots more treats, it’s go to the mailbox (GTM) time, more treat time, etc. It’s so much fun, I can’t imagine why Daddy begs Mom to take me to work with her.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? That I’m sweet, BOL! When people say that, Mom just rolls her eyes.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Lexi – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
