I have a new walking partner... and hopefully soon I'll have two. Both are rescues....
Meet one of the newest members of the family, ZIGGY! He's estimated to be 1 - 1.5 years old, weighs in close to 60 lbs and is a pibble/Am staff mix. He's got some commands down great, but we're still working on the leash manners (and not chasing kitty siblings and a few other things). He's smart, all muscle, very high energy and a total love bug. He loves to do something called a "zoomie" whenever he's in the backyard. It's kinda crazy to watch and know how fast he is.
And his baby brother (Who's still a bit too wild child for walking with more than one person or animal at a time) GATO! He's a 5 month old, 28 lb ball of energy - boxer lab mix. Some days we swear he's part flying squirrel. He loooves his stuffed animals, especially his flea and elephant and has intersting hobbies including chewing his "chicken wings" (back legs), flying leaping off the sofa and bed and sitting on his head with his tush high in the air. He also thinks he is so cute that anyone within visual distance should pet him and fawn over him. I tend to agree about the cuteness - look at that face!
So, these are my walking buddies. I'm hoping Ziggy and I can learn to run together at some point, but we're gonna take baby steps. :-)
