This week, meet Indy!
Indy’s owner is Allison of Marquette, and here’s what
she had to say--
Meet Indy, my ten month old pug/beagle mix (which for
those of you who speak hybrid is a “puggle”). When he
was eight weeks old, and still living at his breeder’s
home, one of the puppies in his household came down with
Parvo and it spread around his litter. The breeder
called me the morning I was supposed to pick him up and
told me that she would have to keep him for a couple
more weeks to ensure he didn’t come down with the nasty
sickness. It was then that I decided to name him Indy,
short for Indiana Jones, because I figured that Indiana
Jones always got himself out of whatever trouble he
found himself in… and hopefully my puppy would as well.
Thankfully, Indy turned out to be completely healthy,
and I was able to bring him into my home a few weeks
Indy has since then acquired a number of nicknames,
despite the fact that his name is already technically a
nickname. These include: little poop, poopie, puggle (he
is more often than not called by his breed rather than
his name), poogle, puglet, and Inge (for all you Tigers
fans out there) plus many more we will likely make up in
days to come.
Indy has more personality than any dog I have ever met.
His hobbies include eating the cat’s food, wagging his
tail so hard his whole body shakes, tearing apart
stuffed animals (thankfully his own!), and chewing on
our other dog, Jessie’s tail. He also has many talents
including dancing on his hind legs when provoked with
peanut butter on his nose, and yawning on command when
his back is rubbed. He also prides himself, despite his
small size, in developing a quite sophisticated security
system for our household, which involves barking at
anyone (dog, cat, human, or alien) within a hundred
yards of our household, even if they are clear across
While Indy is typically a very good doggie, he does find
himself in his fair share of trouble. However, he has
found a surprisingly effective defense mechanism for
resisting our dreaded “bad dog” scoldings. Whenever he
is in trouble he will flop down on the floor directly on
his back, and cock his paws in the air as if to say “
you can’t be mad at me… look at how CUTE I am.” And you
know what? It works.
For all these reasons stated above, and many many MANY
more, I think that Indy deserves a moment in the
limelight as Q107’s Pet of the Week.
