Tahoe's gorgeous mug has been featured on our Instagram, @dogzenergy multiple times, he really is a pro at posing for the camera. Take it away Tahoe!
State your full name and let us know a bit about your background.
"Hi! My name is Tahoe. I am a Chinook. I am bread for sledding. I was born inNew Hampshire where the Chinook is the state dog. I moved to San Diego with my pet parents 3 years ago."
What’s your favorite toy and why?
"I like to tear my toys to pieces so my favorite toy is always changing. Right nowI am loving my 3 squeaky bears from Costco."
What does your typical day consist of, and what would your ideal day include?
"On typical days, I get morning and evening walks with my pet parents and spend the rest of the day inside with my cat brother, Sanchito. My favorite part of the day is my long afternoon walk with Tristan from DogZenergy"
"My ideal day would be spent outside playing in the snow followed by a long evening nap on the couch next to my pet parents."
Who is your best friend and how did you meet?
"My best friend is Reggie, the big brown lab who lives across the driveway. I just love him so much, I would run across the street in front of cars to say hello if I was not on my leash."
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?
"Please stop asking me to sit and stay. Never stop asking if I want to go for a walk or have a cookie."
