Introducing Wrigley

This is Wrigley:

Picture of fluffy black and white puppy.
Can you guess how he got his name?

A) He is the heir to a chewing gum fortune.
B) He got some chewed up Wrigley's gum stuck in his fur
C) He wriggles when I hold him.
D) He loves to play fetch and his life goal is to play ball at Wrigley Field.

Did you guess the correct answer? In case you did not, let me give you some more clues.

Clue #1: Wrigley is broke. Completely penniless. Not a dime to his name. And unless a really surprising adoption happens, he will never be the heir to a chewing gum fortune.

No unending gum supply for me.

Need another clue?  No problem, I'm glad to help you narrow it down.

Clue #2: Wrigley does not know what to do with the tennis ball that is in his ex-pen. His brother Wags will chase it, but if it comes too close, Wrigley will just bark at it. He will most likely never be a famous baseball player (or tennis player).

Get that ball away from me!
Still not sure?  Okay, here's your final clue.

Clue #3: Wrigley has some missing hair on his face. I assured him that he was not going bald at a young age - he just has a little skin issue that we need to get cleared up. This requires medicine. Wrigley does not like medicine being put on his face.

Wrigley's face shows a spot of missing fur.
Here she comes with the medicine again!
Did you figure it out?  The correct answer is C - Wrigley wriggles repeatedly.  Really.

I knew it! I knew it! I knew that's why he was named Wrigley. He just LOOKS wriggley, that's for sure. I hopes your face gets better soon, Wrigley. But you're still just SQUEE-dorable!

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. Has Ziggy sent a letter from bootcamp yet?

Oh what a cutie Wrigley is! I of course thought it had to be that he was well, wriggley, because that is how most of my cats are too. And being in the Chicago area, if you hadn't mentioned it, I would never have even thought of the other guesses - how sad is that!

I was hoping to be able to see him over at Wrigley field one day. I do love his tall, fluffy hair.

Poor kiddo! I loved the "surprising adoption" thought. It would be pretty amazing if it came true!
