Q: Which dog breed are you based on this quiz:
A: Labrador: You are a strong, fierce, intelligent person with a strong playful streak. You can be naughty and rambunctious, but your loyalty is until death. You are extremely social and gregarious and you love to swim and to run with your friends. You love to work hard at your job, and nothing makes you happier than a good snuggle with your boo.
Q: Which breed did you grow up with?
A: I’ve had a Cocker Spaniel, a Beagle, and Yorkies. Sunshine was my shadow for many years and the best tiny dog a girl could have.
Q: Tell us about the pets that you live with now?
A: I have a 6-year-old lab mix named Grady. He is a complete ham; he LOVES learning new things and knows upwards of 200 tricks. He thinks other dogs are the worst and people should not talk to him while he’s walking and he is the best hiking buddy a girl could ask for. When he’s not out hiking or showing off his favorite tricks, he is the LAZIEST boy in the whole world and embraces the couch potato life to the fullest.
I also have a 3-year-old cat named Glitch. He is VERY sure he is a dog and wants to be a part of everything, he’ll sometimes even ride along when we go hiking. He completely idolizes his brother and loves getting Grady to play with him. He loves hanging out in the backyard, birdwatching from his window and just generally causing mischief.
Q: Favorite color
Q: If you got stranded on an island & it’s just you and your best buddy dog, what other animal would you want with you and why?
A: I’d bring a cat, but not just any cat, my old barn cat Tigger. That cat had an amazing knack for hunting, which would come in quite handy considering me and Grady are hopeless in the hunting department
