May the Fur be With You
Where did you come from? Tell us your story.
My name is Gypsy, I’m from Georgia. I know I was in a crowded kennel somewhere, but a nice lady named Kristin came and saved me, and some other lady named Kristen is helping me find my forever home! All these Kristen’s get confusing. I’m still looking for my forever home, so after reading how adorable I am, maybe you’d like to meet me!
What is your biggest fear?
That loud apparatus that hovers over the floor, it’s continually growling at me, I want to eat it. Also the big orange loud “wind machine”, I think she mentioned it blows leafs off the deck…Basically anything that turns on that’s loud… That leaf blowing wind machine someday I’m going to GET IT! I put my mouth on it, and it blows through my body!
What is your fondest memory?
So many…I have a fondness for water, I LOVE it, love it! I bark at it, I bark underwater at it. I use to be afraid of it until I figured out I could stand in it.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
I am a HUGE fart machine. I jump up on something and I scare myself! I’m till trying to figure out where it’s coming from, one day I’ll figure it out! Maybe it’s that leaf blowing wind machine, my nemesis.
What is your favorite animal?
I went to the pet store today…and they had these animals behind the glass, I think they are called ferrets. Well, I wanted to play with one..and then I saw BIRDS! What? What were they doing in there, I tried to get them, but some invisible force was protecting them.
If you could chase anything, what would it be?
Squirrels! And my friend Kona. I love him, and he loves me, I regularly “take him out” even though he is bigger than me.
What’s your favorite food or treat?
I think anything that smells like food is my favorite thing. Yep, my absolute favorite thing. Food is it, anything that smells good or bad, any crinkling sound coming from the cupboard or fridge is my favorite.
Do you wear clothes? If so, what’s your favorite outfit.
My foster mom makes me wear wigs…I think they suit me, someone said I look like a housewife, I don’t know what that is, but I think I need a Mai Tai and a Pedicure later.
Are you named after anyone? How did you get your name?
My Foster mom took one look at me as I rounded the corner at the vets office and renamed me Gypsy, something about my eyes she said. And also my foster moms Niece was reading a book called: The Lightning Queen and it was about Gypsies—so really her Niece named me, she just ran with it.
Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend? What are they like?
I basically LOVE everyone, but I really love my roommate Luna, Xena tolerates me, and even shares moms bed with me, but LUNA, we play and play. I also Love my boyfriend Kona.
What is the weirdest object found destroyed in your home that you left for your human?
Mom doesn’t leave me alone with things to destroy, but her slippers smell really good, and I got a hold of one, I was trying to be sneaky with it, but she caught me and took it away.
Can you do any tricks, if so, what?
I have MY OWN trick, its called empty the bathtub. I LOVE bubbles and apparently they live in a bathtub (sometimes they are in a stream too, and I love that!) My mom was filling up the bathtub, I thought it was for me, so I got in! I even got in when she was in there, mom finally got out of my tub, saying something about: “well, it MUST be your bath time, not mine” Duh of course—I was trying to take a BATH and wash myself (most people would appreciate that I can take care of myself…I MUST be some sort of what did they say, housewife)! I emptied that bathtub quickly, barking and digging the whole time! It was AWESOME!
What’s your idea of happiness?
Hugging. I am a hugging dog, I like to get right in your face and put my paws around you. I also LOVE when you are stretching on the floor…Mom says its YOGA? Well, I call it PLAY TIME, I love to walk on you, sit my furry butt on your head, eat your pony tail—that is a tug toy isn’t it?
What is your present state of mind.
Sleep. I just played for 30 minutes with Luna, and I’m wiped out!
Whats your favorite motto or quote?
“Dogs aren’t our whole lives, but they make our lives whole”
Do you have any major distinguishing characteristics, if so what are they?
My Hound Bark…I like to chase other young dogs like myself and “talk” to them while running. At first my foster mom thought I was a Rhodesian Ridgeback, which I still could have some of that, but I really think I am part Red Bone Coonhound.
