My Pet Tag – Our Bichon Frise – The Perfect Pet Partner

Frosty and the CEI saw this tag over at LFBooks and just loved her post. She got the tag from Carla at carlalovestoread and heaven knows I have a little cutie, too, though thankfully is NOT a fart machine! So why not share?

  1. What is your pet’s name? Frosty, though her full name is Frosty Dancer Nampa Dandy. (She is AKC registered. They seem to love long names.) Frosty with a Flicker
  2. What kind of pet is it and what breed? She is a Bichon Frise, considered a “companion” dog (but according to the AKC, is a non-sporting breed. A Bichon won the Westminster Best of Show this year! We call her a thigh buddy, cause if we’re sitting where she can snuggle next to us–she will). They must have black eyes, black nose, and black pads, and thick, curly white double layered furry ringlets. Yes, she requires grooming (which I do), but, hey, she is non-allergenic (for my husband) and non-shedding (for me). I searched a long time to determine what breed I wanted and discovered that Bichon rescues want you to have a dog in the home–so no, I only wanted one dog.
  3. How long have you had your pet friend? We got her at 7 1/2 weeks after she was weaned. She was barely as big as my hand and fit under my chin when she lay down with me. She is now twelve.
  4. How did you get your pet? My husband and I were moving to Idaho, but he had not yet closed down his business in California. So after a number of months visiting once every month or so, I decided I needed a dog. It had been more than seven years since we’d had to part with our last dog, Muffin, who died at age 13. (He was thrilled that I was talking about another dog–said he needed another hunter.) Frosty was one of two females in a litter of five.
  5. How old is your pet? She was born January 24, 2006–just turned twelve.
  6. What are some quirky things about your pet’s personality? 

     She’s a back sleeper, so it is not unusual to see her roll over and get comfy. Smart as the dickens and has the memory of an elephant. She knows where she left all her toys. Knows what time it is and uses a herding instinct to guide us wherever she wants to go. Frosty's toy She likes to tuck whichever toy she wants to play with under her chin and if so inclined, offer to play with you. Thinks she’s a retriever–just throw the ball–she’ll bring it back. Learned a number of tricks very quickly and knows which will trigger your interest faster. Hide her treat anywhere in the house–she’ll look until she finds it. What a nose!

  7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you? Having retired and no children at home, she is now the focus. Gives us a purpose, an incentive to exercise, makes us laugh, commiserates when we’re sick or sad. She goes most everywhere with us–good as gold in the car–has never torn or ripped anything. She just waits patiently and watches for us to return (not a barker). It is difficult to imagine being without her.
  8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet? We do a lot of walking with her, have hiked all over parks. When we lived in an RV for two years, she was easy to live with and at 13 lbs., she’s a great no-fuss traveler, although she’ll let you know when it’s time to stop.
  9. Frosty-age 12What are nicknames that you call your pet?Her nickname is Frost, but we also call her Woofy or Woof. 

I am not sure who has a pet, so, if you want to do this tag, please do! Consider yourself tagged. I love to read pet stories and I hope you enjoyed mine! Bark if you did! ©2018 V Williams V Williams

  2. She is adorable. I love little dogs who curl up beside you or on your lap. I wish my baby did not shed like yours, I am constantly vacuuming dog hair. I agree, when you are retired and there are no kids home, dogs are great companions. Thanks for sharing Frosty with us.

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
