About Me: Ziggy

THE BASICS

1) Name and Age
My name is Ziggy and I am 10 months old.

2) Breed
I am a dog.

3) Nickname(s)
The Zigster, Zig-man, Zig-Zig

4) Where'd ya come from?
St. Louis, Missouri. I was turned into an animal control facility with my sister when we were just puppies. We were gonna be euthanized, whatever that means. I just know it sounded scary and everyone always whispered that word around us. I was deaf, and well, I still am deaf. My mom came and got us and took us to her house. She says she’s not my mom, but she also says I’m going to be adopted. She’s been saying that for seven months now. She’s wrong a lot.


FAVORITES

1) Toy
Anything I can put in my mouth. Especially things that can be chewed up and shredded, like wood and clothing – they make yummy toys.

2) Snack
Ice cubes are my favorite snack in the whole wild world. Did I say that wrong? One time mom dumped a whole entire cooler full of ice on the ground and I just got to lay there and chew and chew as much as I wanted. It was like a dream come true.

3) Human
My mom is the best human in the whole wide world. That’s because she knows how to work the ice cube machine. Other humans with power machinery are a close second.


FUNNY STUFF

1) Worst habit
Mom says it is chewing everything I can get into my mouth. I say if she’d feed me more, I wouldn’t be so hungry all the time.

2) Most embarrassing moment
That would be the time that I made the mistake of looking at Scribbles the cat.

3) Family dynamic
It’s a free-for-all around here – no one is in charge, and we all just do whatever we want. Oh, wait - mom says that isn’t true. But I’m pretty sure it is.

4) Your human's FAVORITE thing about you
Mom loves how I entertain her constantly. She says she likes that I have such a fun, carefree outlook and always just find a way to enjoy life.

Ziggy, it's very nice to learn more about you. I think your Mom is just crazy about you and she might think you're going to be adopted, but I bet that she'll never find anyone good enough to deserve you. Plus, of course, you're a bit of a star.

wags, Lola

Ziggy, I just love you. How I wish I could add you to my pack of wild animals. Don't worry, Mr. Ziggs. Someone will see your beauty and fall in love with you! How can they not!

Oh...my...goodnesses! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of you as a bitty baby puppy. You were prolly one of the cutest baby puppies I ever saw! It's no wonder you're growing up to be one of the Most Handsomest dogs I ever saw. I just believes with all my heart that you're gonna find your very own home one day. I just hopes it's made outta cement blocks and not ice cubes. Yep...eskimos are definitely out when it comes to possible furever homes for you!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

That is a great post. I love the family dynamics part and of course I had to check out what happened with the cat.

Ziggy is so cute. Why do you think he hasn't been adopted?
