*Where are you from?
Beamsville, Ontario, Canada
*Animals(s) (Age, Breed & Name)?
Libby, Rottweiler, 17 months
*Interesting Facts About Your Animal(s)?
She has the longest tongue of any dog I know and it always seems to be lolling out. She loves a good massage with coconut oil and essential oils. Also, she is always, always, always happy.
*Animal(s) Favorite Treat?
Hmmm,..she loves dried lung and fresh tripe, but her all time favourite is cheese. I’ve often said that if she gets away, I won’t call her name, I’ll just yell ‘cheeeeeeese’.
*Animal(s) Favorite Trick?
I will say “mommy kiss” and Libby will give me a great big wet smooch. (I guess that’s my favourite trick).
*Where is your pet(s) favorite place to go?
To grams’ house to lounge on the deck in the summer. Somebody is always dropping something yummy to eat.
*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue?
Libby was the only dog we have had that was not adopted through rescue. We wanted to experience having a puppy and raising her from the start. Frankly, I love that girl to pieces, but we won’t be doing that again. We will go back to rescuing when we are ready to add to our family. We are also considering fostering
*What’s your favorite thing to do with your dog (walks, going to a park, playing games etc.)?
Libby is game for anything: hiking, obedience training, dog park, visiting grams’ house, you name it.

*Favorite website to get pet information?
Dogs Naturally Magazine
*Do your animal(s) love to go for car rides?
Oh yeah, nothing better.
*What’s your favorite animal product?
Oh that’s a tough one. I love our Outward Hound backpack for hiking so Libby can carry her own water. There is also a 3-foot rope toy that is irreplaceable for a great game of tug. And a raised dog feeder so she doesn’t have to bend all the way to the ground to eat.
*Why do you think volunteering at an animal rescue/shelter is important?
There are so many dogs that are in unfortunate circumstances, obviously through no fault of their own. These dogs deserve to have a chance to live the rest of their lives in a happy situation. Fostering, sponsoring, dog walking, visiting are all ways to help a dog become more adoptable and in so doing, get him/her a step closer to adoption. We are planning on fostering in the future
*Anything extra you would like to add?
Libby is an avid Boston Bruins hockey fan and loves to curl up beside mom on game nights to watch them win. She is about to start her third round of obedience training and is working really hard on not jumping on people.
