Thursday is becoming our favorite day of the week, as we have another Zen Dog Spotlight feature with absolutely adorable, and too cute King Charles Cavalier, Digby! He is always a hit at the small dog park where he goes with his mama and all around fabulous Dogzenergy trainer and team member, Brandi! Digby has been featured on our blog including: Merry Christmas from DogZenergy, Zen Dog Adventures: Small Dog Park, and Zen Dog Training Tip of the Week: Ignore and Reward. Digby's happy go lucky attitude brings joy to everyone he meets, and the best part is he makes new friends everyday! Take it away Digby!
State your full name and let us know a bit about your background.
"My name is Digby, and I’m a 6 year old King Charles Cavalier. My mom says I’m chunky for my breed, so my nickname is chunky butt. My first mom was a sweet lady named Nancy, who took good care of me and sent me to play with my DogZenergy friends as a puppy. I love Aunt Brittany and Aunt Karen so much! When I was 3 Nancy found that she couldn’t take care of me anymore, and asked the DogZenergy Team if they could set me up in a loving home. My new mama, Brandi, is a DogZenergy Team Member and jumped at the chance to take me into her home. Mama always tells me that she's incredibly lucky to have me and that I bring joy and laughter into her life every day."
What’s your favorite toy and why?
"My favorite toys are definitely squeaky balls. I play until my tongue is hanging down to the floor! I also love playing tug of war with my stuffed animals."
What does your typical day consist of, and what would your ideal day include?
"My typical day consists of morning kisses and stretches with mama. Then off to the dog park fora few hours to play with my friends. Nap time right after. Mama says Im a loud snorer and that I bark in my sleep. My ideal day would include sleeping in, jumping into a swimming pool full of dog biscuits, and then napping in the sun."
Who is your best friend and how did you meet?
"I have SO many best friends! I love wrestling with Daisy, playing tug of war with Wilson, gnawing on bones with Sierra, snuggling up for a nap with Ro and Letka, and playing fetch with Otis."
What is the one question you wish your human would stop asking you, and the one question you wish your human would never stop asking you?
"I wish mama would stop asking me to stop barking at birds and airplanes. I get so mad and worked up at them because they are flying around in my territory, but mama says its embarrassing when I bark at the sky. But she can ask the “Ready to eat?” question all day long! Sometimes I sit by the treat drawer and cry because sometimes she gives into my big, brown, puppy dog eyes."
If you were going to win an award at the "Oscar Pet Awards" would you want to win it for 1.) Cuteness 2.) Heroism/Courage 3.) Sassiness 4) Loyalty 5) Fashionista. Give us a quick example/story of why we should pick you!
" If I were going to win an award at the “Oscar Pet Awards” I would probably win an award for cuteness. I tend to get my way because of my afore mentioned puppy dog eyes, and I have a little cry that will melt your heart.. unless I see a plane, of course. Then I turn into a ferocious attack dog!"
Thank you to Digby and his mama Brandi for participating in this weeks Zen Dog Spotlight!
