He likes to smile.
What are your dog’s favorite places to hang out?
Outside laying in the sun.
Does your dog have any shameful secrets?
He likes to get tissues out of the bathroom garbage cans and string them throughout the house to get attention. He’s also deathly afraid of the vacuum cleaner.

Single and ready to mingle.
Ride in the car vs. Walk in the park?
Tough call! He likes both about the same.
Rope vs. Fetch?
Cheese, apples, milk bones, granola bones – pretty much anything you put in front of him or anything that falls on the floor. It’s very hard to distinguish what he likes best.
