Top Dog of the Month: Large/4th Room

Full name (if registered or have a middle name:) Alexander Hamilton (because he's young, scrappy, and hungry)

How old? His third birthday is this month, November 3!

When did they come live with you?  We brought him home when he was a tiny 8 week old puppy in a plaid blanket--we will never forget that day!

Any siblings (animal or human?) Alex has a 10-month old human sister named Charlotte and they are becoming fast friends.  She already pets him first thing in the morning and loves to go to his treat bowl to feed him treats.

Favorite place?  Alex's favorite place is wherever his family is.  He especially loves going to the beach.


Which one best: Outside or inside?  He loves off-leash walks exploring the outdoors, but he also enjoys lounging in bed.

Dog parks, Nap times, or Spa Day? Alex basically stares at his mom and dad at the dog park wondering why they took him to a place filled with dogs. He doesn't know he's not human.

Favorite place to sleep?  On top of dad's legs.

Favorite food dog or human kind? Alex loves butter.  Whole sticks of butter may disappear on the counter when he is around.  

Favorite toy at home?  Tennis ball and any of Charlotte's toys.

Favorite thing to do?  Get attention from mom and dad.  Playing fetch, getting pets, or just hearing baby talk are great as long as he's getting attention.

Favorite person or best friend?  Since being pregnant, Alex has become a real momma's boy and is now very protective of his mom and baby sister Charlotte.  

Watching my figure or YOLO (Picky eater or "starving all the time?") Combo:  Alex will devour human treats (butter, cookie dough, peanut butter) but grazes his own dog food.

I always am... in need of attention.

Loves getting pets or just a loner? Alex would want to be petted 24 hours per day if he could.

Introvert vs extrovert?  He prefers his inner circle.

Funny characteristics: Alex loves his family so much but is very particular about stairs. Sometimes his dad has to carry him up and down like a sheep so that he can play with the family. 

Misc stories about their past etc.:  Alex always wants to be close to his humans.   Once, he missed his mom and dad so much that he jumped into the hot tub just to be on his mom's lap.
