The love of a dog

This is my Elvis dog. He's a purebred Pomeranian and was born in Sept 2009. He's so adorable and loves the attention from us. When we go out, we crate him so he doesn't chew everything. 

He's chewed:
  • camera cord
  • nintendo DS cord
  • socks
  • sandals
  • underwear... (mine)
  • kleenex
  • random paper
  • and of course dog toys 

We got him in October, when he was 13 months old. We found him on a craigslist like site and got him for $250. He was such a catch but he seems like he's part dog, part cat, part rabbit. He can jump and get something hanging over a counter at our waist height.

Rabbit: uber jumps
Dog: loves attention
Cat: skittish and scared of strangers and other dogs most of the time. He's interested in them until they pay attention to him and then he bolts.

He used to be scared of the car but once we let him ride in the car outside of a kennel, he stopped being scared. He loves to "go for a ride" now and we take him anywhere we can. Unfortunately we will stop taking him except when we're only going to places that he can come into because it's almost summer and we don't want him to suffocate in a hot car.

He sleeps on the bed with us most nights and curls up on our legs or between them. To wake us up, he climbs up on top of us, lays down and licks inside our ears. That wakes us quickly.

My favourite time of day is when I come home after work or from anywhere else and he gets so excited. He bounces when we come in the door and his tail never stops wagging.

We were painting all weekend and Elvis sat outside the door whining for a long time. He spent a lot of time in the room on the other side of the door and when I opened the door, he was SO excited to see me. It was almost like I'd been gone for a week.
