Many of you probably already know Gramma, our one and only dog up for adoption. She came to us in early December and has spent lots of quality time at our front desk while searching for her forever home. We cherish her company and enjoy having deep, meaningful conversations with her, which means we’ve gotten to know her pretty well. With that being said, we decided to make this week’s blog a Q&A session with Gramma.
Age: 13 years young
Gender: Spayed female
Weight: 40 pounds
I am looking to find: Someone to spend the rest of my life with.
What are your hobbies?: Sleeping, looking for food, going on walks.
If you could be one celebrity for a day who would you be? Betty White
Where are you from?: I came from a full house that was very busy, I had 6 other dog brothers and sisters who all came to Good Dog with me in early December. Since then they have all been adopted out to new homes.
What is one thing about yourself that you would like other to know?: I may be old, but don’t let that scare you. I still have plenty of spunk left in me. I love to play and still make people laugh with the silly situations I get myself in.
If you were an animal in the wild what would you be?: A Lioness, Queen of the jungle who gets plenty of attention.
What do you think is the most important value in a relationship?: Friendship
What do you do for fun? I love to go out on the Monon and explore, I used to go out for walks off leash until I wouldn’t stop running over to the Momma Carrolas patio. It just smells so good there and I always hear people talking about how good the food is. Other than that I love to play, that usually involves swatting my paws around, jumping just a little and barking.
Do you like animals?: I am partial to animals. Cats I find fascinating and I just want to play with and bark at, I have come to find out they usually don’t like that. I think we could get along fine though once we got to know each other. As for dogs, I like most of them. I get along best with other dogs my speed. Sometimes the younger smaller dogs can just be too much for an old lady like me.
What is one job you would love to do?: Hot dog taste tester, competitive food eater.
If you won the lottery, how would you spend your millions?: Highlights for my hair, reading glasses, jet ski lessons.
What TV show do you never miss?: Golden Girls
Do you believe the cup is half empty or half full?: Half full, life is AMAZING!
What adjective would a close friend use to describe you?: Sweet
Who is your favorite athlete? Mary Lou Retton
What is your idea of a good time?: Finding a big comfy couch to curl up on, snuggle all day.
Are you a morning person or a night person?: I’m an afternoon person. I like to go to bed early and sleep in. After I get all my naps in though I get all my errands (snuggles, eating, playing) done middle of the day.
What was the last CD you bought?: Miles Davis
Describe your perfect vacation: Martha’s Vineyard. Find a good Bed and Breakfast, good food, good views, plenty of relaxing in the warm sun.
What is your most treasured possession? The tiny round bed of Tiki’s that I actually took over.
Final thoughts?: I love everyone here at Good Dog (especially the front desk staff), but I really would love to have my own family to be with. I get restless here every once and a while but I know it’s best to wait for the right people to come along and find me. I promise if you stop in to say Hi I will convince you that we should see more of each other.
Gramma is such a sweetheart and loves to charm everyone who comes in with her sweet disposition. When we walk on the Monon she wants to stop and say hi to as many people as she can.
