is a male, named before his humans knew better. He is
quite a character. While he cannot perform human speech, he is
able to do some other noises: he imitates the opening a soda pop
can, running water, kisses and the opening pill bottles. He's
especially cute when he laughs at his human's sense of sarcasm.
He loves boxes and will go inside them and shred these for hours.
To his humans, this serves as a form of a baby sitter, therefore
giving them a break because he wants to be with them every minute
of the day. He dislikes all forms of team sports and will get
down off of the couch to charge and chase the players on the
television. This is especially apparent when his humans watch
car races, as pit crew stops are his favorites.
He's intelligent enough to be able to hold a grudge. When his
human "daddy" returns from gone on a business trip he's happy to
see him, but lets him know he's displeased that he's been gone by
giving him a little "love bite."
Most endearing is this loyalty to his human parents. He is very
possessive of his people and his territory, so much so that he
will chase and try to bite any stranger enters his domain. We
have had him for a long time and we would be at a loss without
him. He's a great companion.
