This week we are featuring one of are youngest Zen dog's, energetic and beyond cute pomeranian Malani! This little darling has so much energy, and always greets you with a huge mini smile. Malani has also been featured in our daily Zen dogs on our social media. She is so much fun to hang out with running everywhere she goes, we're so excited that she's now joined one of our small dog park groups with DogZenergy team member Brandi! The stage is yours Malani! 

 State your full name and let us know a bit about your background.

"My name is Malani Spaz Villela. I am 4 months old, and the first dog my family has ever had. It is hard training them! I reward them with kisses if they get it right, but they are still learning. Patience is key."

What’s your favorite toy and why?

"I actually have 2 favorite toys- a pink Mr. Bubble squeak toy, and my stuffed animal piggy. If those aren’t available my owners’ pant leg or flip flips will do."

What does your typical day consist of, and what would your ideal day include?

"My day includes getting up bright and early- around 5:30am to run around my kitchen as fast as possible. I have to wait for my owner to have coffee before she can keep up with me. I have a great backyard that I like exploring in- I have a big fern that I play hide and seek in, I like to dig holes, and an avocado tree that occasionally drops avocados but my owner gets mad when I eat the seeds, so I try to take them when they are not looking. I also got the all clear from my vet to start taking walks around the neighborhood, and it has been fun exploring- maybe you will see me running around Windandea with my owners or my human friend Amanda from DogZenergy, I am the 5 lb. fluff ball with 3 colors."

Who is your best friend and how did you meet?

"My best friends are Daisy and Sadie. Daisy is a Maltese Shizshu and we have play dates at our houses, and Sadie is and Yorkshire  terrier, and my next door neighbor."

 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 my human would stop asking me to stop biting. I am a puppy and that’s what we are supposed to do! I wish my human would never stop asking me if I want a treat. I could eat an entire bag of those and still never get enough."

 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!

"Cuteness for sure. I mean, c’mon…who can resist a happy fluffball like me?"

"Any other insight you would like us to know? 

I like to bark at carbon monoxide detectors- those things are weird! I also have my own account @sweet_pup, follow me there, my adopted 9 year old human posts my videos there for everyone to see. Bark out peeps!"

Thank you to Malani and her mama Dawn for participating in this week's Zen Dog Spotlight!
