April 11 is National Pet Day (apparently)! Don’t worry, I’m not here to make you feel sad about unadopted animals. I just want to talk about my cutest dog pup face littlest guy ever–except he’s an extra large, 3-year-old Flat-Coated Retrieverish Mix.
His name is Porter, but he also goes by the nicknames Portman, Portmand, Oregon, P-Money and Cutest Fluff Guy (which I say in a high-pitched voice as I squeeze him so hard that his eyes pop out of his cutest fluff face).
His interests include rolling in bunny poo, chasing his tail and catching frisbees (he can catch like 12 in a row, I don’t know how he does it). He may be playful, but he is also a fancy, scholarly gentleman with a bombass princely tail that flows in the wind.
The day I got him at the SPCA was the best day ever. Porter was in the back of his cage in a little squeaky hammock and was said to be lethargic and unsociable. When I took him out, he was stinky and pieces of hay were sticking out of his fur, but we immediately clicked. Two days after having him home, I was reading through his paperwork and found that he was a total slug because they forgot to give him pain medication after having surgery a few days prior. Poor guy. Once he got his medication, he was great!
So that’s all I have to say, really. I love him. Go hug your pets and have a lovely weekend!
