Five Cool Things About Captain:
He was the best man at his parents’ wedding.
He’s comes by his amazing butt fringe naturally; no brushing or combing necessary!
When he eats hot sauce (his favorite thing), he emits atomic farts.
He’s got a smile to beat the band!
He loves to hang with his posse.
Although four year-old Captain is a “spoiled little dog”, his parents Angela and Josh W. can’t imagine life without him.
They adopted from the local Humane Society in northern Iowa, where the police found him wandering around the lake and took him to the local Labrador breeder (who is a part of the network of foster homes that constitutes the local HS). “She took him in to the vet, where they found so many problems: underweight, infected testicle, urinary tract infection, and another condition I can’t remember now. The breeder figures his previous owners had ditched him once he got sick because they thought it would cost too much to fix him. It was barely $200 and worth every penny!”
(Ed. note: don’t get me started in the subject of ditching dogs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr).
“Captain is such a wonderful, sweet, kind, smart, adorable dog. We can’t believe anyone would ever let him go! He loves napping and treats (he may have put on a little weight when he first came to us, though we try to blame the late-life neutering), walks, car rides, sitting on the lawn, frolicking and playing with my sister’s year-old Yorkie/Silky, and laying on the couch watching movies with us.”
“He came housebroken, knows how to sit and stay, loves children, babies, and the elderly the most, though he just likes all people and cats in general.”
“Captain enjoys long walks on the beach, but not in the water (he hates swimming). He likes being outside but refuses to play there. He’ll play and fetch and run around in the house, but as soon as he sets paw on grass it stops. He finds a place to sit and does surveillance until we bring him back inside.”
“He adores people and has plenty of them around him all the time. Many of them give him far too many treats. He has his own recliner, but sleeps on the couch at night. He also has his own blanket, a hand-made Christmas gift from my husband’s sister. Life’s good for the little guy.”
“We really can’t imagine life without him now! He’s become such a part of our lives.”
