Spotlight Thursday – Hailey and Zaphod

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 new series!


Name:  Hailey

Age:  6 on January 13th

Location:   ​Gatineau Hills, Quebec, Canada

Web/Blog Page:  Hailey and Zaphod

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I first met them at my foster home. I was so excited to be out of my crate and to meet them that I was jumping around and spinning. I was like the Tasmanian Devil. I did settle and I thought – I bet these are people I can train.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When the Lady started the blog and had count down to days without destruction. I knew I had her!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  There have been so many. First, I destroyed 2 crates and tore the guest room apart. Then there was this time I put a 2 foot by 1 foot hole in the wall of our new house 10 days after we moved. I could go on, but I won’t because it may cast me in a poor light. 

 ​Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  ​It is a tie. I am just that lovable.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? I think because Lady shares my crazy side people don’t realize I am a huge snuggly suck (once I am a bit tired and as long as there is nothing scary going on), and that as I have gotten older, I have calmed down a lot.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I met them at my foster home. My first thoughts were “are these nice people?” You see, I had been with some not nice people before I was picked up for hitchhiking. At that time, I was a little nervous. 

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The moment I arrived and my foster mom was doing the house inspection/tour and I lifted my leg and peed on their bed. I never peed on anything like that in the house again (I did have a couple accidents the first month, mostly when I was scared). 

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  I have been scolded for running out of the yard and I always think I am in the worst trouble and that they are going to get rid of me, but then I remember these are loving people who will keep me no matter what. 

 ​Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  ​My Lady – I am her sucky boy. She takes me for walks and does most of the daily care. Don’t get me wrong I love my Man (he throws the frisbee better), but she is my Lady! 

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  People see a German Shepherd and they are often scared. My people and those who get to know me will tell you I am one of the nicest dogs you will ever meet. 


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friends Hailey and Zaphod – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
