April 8, 2011Best Phriends: Toby and Todd

It’s time to meet more Best Phriends! Our new pals are Toby and Todd from lovely Nampa, Idaho.

Name – Toby
Age – 4 years…ish
Hometown – Nampa, Idaho
Owner – April
Breed/s – Labrador/Whippet?
Nicknames – Tobe, Toblerone, Bud, Tobester, and so many more
Arrival story – He was my high school graduation present! I asked my parents for a dog my whole life, finally they got me one! I adopted him from the Idaho Humane Society’s inmate trained dogs program. He is my boy :) I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect gift.

Favorite food – Everything! But he seems particularly tempted by Canidae treats.
Best trick – Too many to choose from! Probably running on the treadmill, or holding a toy/treat on his nose.
Arch nemesis – The dreaded laser pointer!

What’s the biggest trouble your pup’s ever gotten in? He got into his food and ate about six cups at once, he was not comfortable! Nearly gave me a panic attack thinking he might get bloat!

If your pup had a job, what would it be? Janitor, preferably in a kitchen, he would lick the place spotless!

Name – Todd
Age – 3.5 years-ish
Hometown – Nampa, Idaho
Owner’s first name – Kayleen
Breed/s – Chihuahua/Pomeranian ?
Nicknames – Toddrick, Toddler, Short Bus
Arrival story – He was found abandoned in the country by a friend who couldn’t keep him, so my sister asked my parents if he could live with us while she is living where dogs aren’t allowed. He’s not the brightest but he is a sweetheart.

Special talents or skills – If you hold him over the tub (empty or full) he swims in midair.
Most annoying habit – He almost never settles down to snuggle with you unless he can get between your legs. He will stand on your legs shifting his paws and spinning around until you let him in.
Best friend – Kayleen, but when she isn’t here it’s definitely my dad.

In a movie about your pup’s life, what actor/actress provides his/her voice? Michael J Fox.

If your pup were in high school, who would he/she sit with at lunch? Jocks, nerds, freaks, preps, geeks, etc.? We always say that Todd would be in the Special Ed class. It took him about six weeks to learn “sit” and sometimes he is just a little off, like trying to chew his tail and run straight at the same time!

Please note: We are not currently accepting submissions for Best Phriends, but check back in later installments for information on how your pup can be featured!

    Reading it again I probably should have said a little more about how sweet Todd is! Such a snuggler, just not too terribly bright but that is ok :)

    Haha! Dottie’s the same way, April… not too sharp, but sweet as pie. :D
