PET OF THE WEEK
PETE COLFAX
DECEMBER 9 - DECEMBER 15

HELLO, MY NAME IS PETE.  I AM A 5 ½ YEAR OLD FOXHOUND.  I WAS A RESCUE FROM THE BLOOMINGDALE ANIMAL SHELTER AND CAME WITH THE NAME PETE.  MY PARENTS THINK I MAY HAVE BROKEN AWAY FROM A FOXHOUND PACK IN KENTUCKY.

I AM A TALENTED FOXHOUND.  I CAN HOWL INTO A HARMONICA.  HOW MANY DOGS DO YOU KNOW THAT CAN DO THAT?  

I JUST LOVE THE OUTDOORS!  HIKING IN THE WOODS WITH MY DEAR FRIEND MARTHA  AND CHASING LITTLE WOODLAND CREATURES IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE PASTIME.  I ESPECIALLY ENJOY BEAR SWAMP CHRISTMAS TREE FARM.

MOM AND DAD GET A LITTLE ANGRY WITH ME WHEN I PULL THEM INTO THE WOODS BECAUSE I’VE SPOTTED A RABBIT OR BROUGHT MICE AND VOLES INTO THE HOUSE.  DIGGING HUGE HOLES IN THE YARD IS ALSO GREAT FUN BUT MOM AND DAD DON’T AGREE. IF I CAN’T BE OUT HIKING IN THE WOODS OR PLAYING WITH RODENTS IN THE GARDEN,  MY SQUEAKY SNOWMAN CAN BE FUN TOO.

ALL IN ALL, I’M A VERY SWEET DOG.  I MAY SORE SOMETIMES, BUT THAT MAKES MOM SMILE.
