Hey hey hey, whatcha doin up there? Come smile with me! I''m Chocolate but don''t worry, I''m much more original than my name, in fact my volunteer friends say I''m one of a kind! My Mom had to move somewhere I wasn''t welcome and yeah, I''ll admit it was a tough adjustment at first but I''m so over that now, who can stay mad when there are new people to meet, new toys to play with and a whole new ''hood to explore? I''m an energetic guy but I know how to come and sit and walk quite nicely on leash and I''m happy to say hi to other dogs large or small, plus Mom made sure I''m what you call ''house trained'' so I wait until we hit the road to take care of business. I''m pretty relaxed and nothing really bugs me; staying in while you work, loud noises, sharing my stuff, meeting new folks or even taking a bath, it''s all good as long as I know I''m loved and you''ve got my back--seriously, don''t forget to scrub that while I''m in the tub, I can''t reach up there! City living is nada problema but it would be nice to have a yard or a park nearby so we can play chase and fetch and I can get my zoomie on and I''m also used to two walks a day, though if you wanna go for more I would totally be up for that too. As long as I''ve got toys to munch on I''ll leave the leash alone because I''m a smart guy, I know the difference. My faves are ball and rope and isn''t tug-o-war just the best thing ever?!! My friends tell me I make a pretty awesome playmate, what with the happy vibe and the toy sharing and all, but things can get pretty bouncy so a new family without any of those little humans would be best. I really miss my Mom and my bed and my home but I''m ready to move on and start over as soon as possible, so whaddaya say? Wanna play?
