Dog of the Month

Chippy

 

Seven years ago, I was a puppy in Louisiana at the Lafayette Animal Shelter.  These nice people took me and my newly born siblings in and looked for new homes for us.  I have ten brothers and sisters with coats either all brown or all black.  Except for me!  I am the only one who has spots.  The shelter staff thought it would be fun to name my pack after chocolates and cookies because of our colors.  I have a sisters named Milano and Nestle.  Because I’m the only spotted one, they called me Chippy!  

Little did I know that a nice couple with two young girls living in Massachusetts was looking for a dog to complete their family.  They tell me that one look at my picture on the computer was all they needed to know I was the one.  I took a long trip on a truck with lots of other dogs from Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, and Ohio all the way to Connecticut to meet my family.  It was really scary for a young pup to be on a big truck inside a tiny crate, but once I saw my family, I fell in love.  It helped that they all had nice smells and yummy treats for me!

Now, I keep them company while they do yard work, play games, watch tv, or do their homework.  I love to help in the kitchen!  I always do a good job catching the food the falls on the floor while my owner is cooking dinner.  Sometimes, when they have a really yummy meal, I like to put my head on their laps and look really cute.  I always find the weakest one to give in to my charm!  

They try to take me out for walks all the time.  Why is that so important?  I don’t like walks so much, and I let them know when I’ve had enough by trying to sit down.  The only time I really like long walks is when we go to a fun state park!  Those places have lots of smells I love!  Squirrels, birds, frogs, grass, bugs, you name it!  I just keep my nose to the ground and sniff the entire time.  I also love to taste test the grass wherever we go.  They tell me I’m not a grazing animal, whatever that means, but I love eating grass.  And, when the weather turns cold, I love to play in the snow!  I jump in the big mounds of snow and stick my entire face in it.  It’s great!  

When I get dirty outside, they give me a fun bath.  I love bath time!  I also love sleeping under the youngest girl’s bed every night.  It’s so warm and cozy under there, and she always give me lots of hugs and kisses.  A lot of the time, I don’t like to be petted – I tolerate it because they usually give me something yummy to eat.  But, I enjoy when Amanda gives me goodnight hugs.  She’s sweet!  

Boy, I’m glad this family found me and brought me up to Massachusetts.  Because my owner worked next door to Off the Leash, I started to come here.  It’s my favorite place of all to visit.  Every Wednesday morning she asks me if I want to play.  Hello!  I love playing with my friends there and spending time with their awesome staff.  They like to take pictures of me there, too, just like my owners.  I sit pretty for the camera and smile!  Here are some pictures that really capture my cuteness.   Thank you Off the Leash for picking me to be December’s Dog of the Month!
