-Name: Dan Kehl
-Type of pet: Dog
-Male or female? Male
-Why he is my friend: He is always there waiting with a happy Wally face.
-Describe in five words: Lap dog in big dog
-Best trait: He loves to cuddle as close as possible.
-Personality: He is a loveable goofball. A little separation anxiety has cost us a few couches, and no trash can is safe.
-A funny story: I've taken Wally to several Dog Days at Coca-Cola Park to see the IronPigs. There is another Weimaraner there that attends and has become his friend. Wally is always so well-behaved and friendly to everyone until he sees his friend and he gets too excited. The last time he, and his friend, circled both of their owners and trapped us together.
-Likes more than anything: Lying on his back in the sun.
-Any tricks? Sit, stay, lie down, wait, pray (before bedtime)
-Silly names you call him: Wallyrus, Stinky
-Shows affection by: Cuddles and he gives kisses.
-Will usually be found: At my feet, in my bed or in the yard.
-Likes to be rubbed: On his ears and belly.
-Favorite toy? Me
-Loves this treat: Rawhide bones
-Terrified of: Being alone
-Worst habit: Dumping the trash can
-Where he sleeps: In my bed, usually taking up most of the queen-sized bed.
-Strange but true: His breed is a hunting breed and occasionally he will catch a critter in the yard. Last summer he "caught" and proudly presented me with two skunks in one week.
-Comments: He's naughty, but his love and affection would make anyone willing to clean up a mess now and then.
