Hi, Everyone -- I am posting as "Bu" today. I'm a new (one-year-old) Portie boy who is full of mischief. Whenever my person isn't watching me I do something fun (she thinks it's bad), like grabbing whatever isn't hidden -- oh, like tax returns on a desk, or lots of little pieces of paper like receipts or paper towels, or shoes, nail polish bottles, nail files, knives, scissors, pork steaks, grout cleaner -- you name it. It probably is a miracle I'm still alive. I eat everything... sneak into the laundry room and see if I can find a detergent pod to steal. Shoes are fun to destroy, especially new ones. I sneak into her closet when she's working if the door isn't 100 percent closed. She takes me to the dog park, but that's closed now, due to Covid. She took me down under her home to the beach -- where I love to swim -- but that's verbotin now, too, due to Covid. I hope this virus goes away soon. I also used to swim a lot in a friend's pool and play with my littermate brother, whom I love. But that's off limits, too. So, what's a respectable, mouthie Portie to do? I live with a German Shepherd Dog who is eleven-and-a-half and she isn't much fun. The first thing I did when I was eight weeks old and I came into the house was head for her food bowl. She didn't like that, so as soon as I could, when she wasn't looking, I ran and bit her in the behind and then -- fast as lightning -- ran to hide under the sofa!!! I can't do that anymore because I'm way too big now, but it was really fun. So I'm not her favorite friend -- But that's okay. My person loves me to bits, even though I push the limits constantly. I am getting much more loving as I grow older. I love to snuggle up with her. Here's a secret: She sometimes puts on Chanel No. 5. It drives me crazy! I love any perfume but No. 5 is my favorite. So, she doesn't wear it very often anymore because I'm all over the place when she does. I can hardly wait until that darn "testing" starts, because I want to swim in the waves again. I am very smart, but don't mind if you want to think I'm a beach bum. I LOVE being naughty. That is my favorite thing, in fact -- to grab something I know she wants and run off with it. Now I have her trained really well. If she wants it back without a struggle, she has to give me a treat! So, I'm getting picky. If I don't pick something really bad -- like a knife or nail polish or a bra or something (ever chewed the top off a nail polish bottle?) -- she might just decide to let me have it. Once I grabbed her bra and ran out into the street with it. I will never forget that one. She was really mad! Anyway, if you're a dog who wants a good time, I'm ready! Anytime! P.S. I am rather vain despite my naughtiness. I don't like the photo my owner posted, but I am very hairy and my eyes are deep set. They are a lovely amber-green. You can see them if you click on my photo and blow it up (click again on it). But they don't show when the photo is small because they are in the shadows. I guess my face isn't very easy to shoot because I'm always moving frenetically -- just my quirky personality.
