PHIDO Q & A
Age: I am 10, which in dog years is 77. I don’t feel a day over 60
Breed: I am a big mix of things, pit bull, german shepherd, akita, Bengal tiger, princess, and sphinx.
Rescue? (If so from where) “My mom picked me up from Pet Rescue by Judy. Judy didn’t want my mom to have me (for some silly reason) so my Nana got me and gave me to my mom. It is the best thing ever, because my mom loves me an obsessive amount.”
Nickname(s): Lady – Story behind it: “My mom’s ex named me after her favorite literary character. She wasn’t very nice (the character or the ex). My mom tried to change my name to Keisha at some point, it didn’t work. I decided to live up to my name by being elegant, and stubborn. I am considered very wise and dignified. My mom usually calls me “Lady” because I am a real lady after all.”
Favorite toy or treat? “I am just too proper for toys. Unless someone wants to play tug of war. I guess my favorite toys are my leash and my sister Macy (when I feel like playing, the rest of the time she’s annoying). My favorite treats are pig ears, chicken, and anything edible.”
Idea of fun? “Sleeping, snuggling selectively, catching flies, barking at anything that comes anywhere near my house”.
Have you had any moments of weakness? “Are you kidding? I am the strongest most stable of all creatures. Actually when I was little, I hated my crate. I also hate thunderstorms, fireworks, and loud noises. I hide and attach to my moms when I am scared. They protect me and keep me safe from all of the bad things in the world.”
If you could be doing anything at this moment, what would it be? “Chewing my butt or sunbathing. Or doing both at the same time.”
If you could tell your parents anything, what might you say? “I love you so so so so so so so so much. Except when you hold on to me for too long. I don’t really like that. But thank you for feeding me, and loving me, and giving me big hugs and kisses. Until I want you stop, then you should stop.”
How do you spend your spare time? “It’s all spare time. It’s not like I have a job.”
Perfect holiday? “What? Tuesday. That’s a pretty good day.”
If you could add anything to the grocery list what would it be? “Pig ears, lots of chicken, more dinner for me. Not Macy.”
Best friends/ girlfriends/ boyfriends? Who are they and what makes them so special? “My mom is my best friend. My other mom is also my best friend. My sister Sara is my best friend. We don’t spend that much time together. Who are they and what makes them so special? My Moms are special because they spoil me and love me. My sister Sara is my best friend because she likes to play with me and also gets tired at the same time as me so she knows when to stop playing and enjoy laying down.”
What would you say your goal in life is? “To protect my Moms from everything, including other dogs walking down the street, the mailman, the UPS guy, and flies.”
What are you currently thinking? “When is dinner?”
