It's hard to believe Peanut has been with us for five years. It seems like 20. In honor of his birthday, let me introduce you more thoroughly to the nut.
First, a little background. Peanut Butter was removed from his original home due to serious neglect. He and his brother (a Border Collie) were kept 24/7 in their crates. He was taken in by my favorite rescue and put into their foster program. His foster mother was very tearful when handing him over. I believe she must be a saint.
Personality: Cheerful, manic, loving, stubborn - all traits are exhibited in five second intervals.
Motivation: Food. And more food. His food, Lovey's food, the cat's food, my food. He could consume his body weight every 15 minutes.
Strengths and Super Powers: Protector of the house (and yard, street, any street in the area), can turn into a heat-seeking missile when a piece of food hits the floor, even if he is in another room, can completely cover himself with his blankets, world's best cuddler.
Weaknesses: Selective deafness, tendency to evoke high drama at the drop of a hat
Fears: Food supply shortages. Flies.
I adore him.
