Squirt, the dog who loves going on “Bye, Byes”

What is your pet’s name? Squirt

What is the breed of your pet? Mini Longhaired Dachshund

How was your pet’s name chosen? I named her after the little turtle from Finding Nemo.

Does your pet have a favorite walking route? What is it and why? She doesn’t really go on walks anymore, so everywhere in general. She loves going “Bye, Byes” which is what I say when I am taking her somewhere. She enjoys being taken places.

What’s the most embarrassing thing your pet has ever done? She gets excited and pees sometimes so I have to tell people to greet her outside first to get all the excitement out of her system. Well, when she was just a pup, she peed on my friend. Lesson learned!

Does your pet have a pet peeve? If so, what is it? She doesn’t like when I tickle her feet. She has these little hairs between her toes and I always play with them when she’s trying to sleep. You can tell she isn’t a big fan because she shakes her foot and gives me the glare.

If your pet could answer any question, but just one, what would you ask? I would ask her how mad she is about me getting my English Mastiff Emma! They are best friends now (it seems) but it took a little time!
