  • If Theo drove a car what would he drive? Nothing too hip or cool – perhaps a station wagon (with wood paneling, of course) or maybe a Prius.
  • What’s the naughtiest thing he has ever done? He somehow got onto the kitchen counter (we’ve never seen it happen!), removed an entire brand new rotisserie chicken & ate the entire thing while my husband took a shower. There was NO evidence the chicken ever existed except for the empty container licked perfectly clean.
  • Floor? Couch? Dog bed? Or all the above?  Dog bed
  • What’s your favorite thing to do with him? Snuggle & see him excited with other dogs or still try to play.
  • What’s a day in the life of Theo? After breakfast & meds at home, he typically goes to work with mom for the day & sleeps on a dog bed in her office. After a day of sleeping he’s back home with the fam for an afternoon nap before dinner. After dinner & meds he’s in bed by 8pm typically.
  • Describe Theo in 3 words? Sweet, Deaf, Nervous
  • Chicken or Steak? Chicken for sure.

  • One thing you would change about him? I would give him new healthy & strong back legs so he can keep being a part of our family
  • Word or Phrase you use most often with him? “Theo pooped in the basement again!”
  • What are his favorite hangouts? His upstairs dog bed (under his covers & tucked in for bed) or the cool grass outside, he could lay there for hours.
