Suburb: I live at Lota.
How long have you lived here? Since I was eight weeks old.
What’s your favourite local walk? Behind Bayside United Soccer Club, up beside the train tracks (after a swim) then past the skate park to see the local kids do some cool tricks!
What’s your most treasured toy? The big orange stuffed cat toy I won at Pups in the Park from the Wynnum Manly Vets. I love to carry it around everywhere at home.

What’s your favourite local hangout? Lota dog park.
Who’s your best doggo friend? I’ve got so many friends, but Kevin and Winnie from the Lota dog park would be my besties. We’ve been going to the dog park together since we were puppies.
Any funny or embarrassing stories you’d like to share? If you know me, you’ve probably already got a story. But maybe the time I accidently turned the Rugby World Cup on while Mum and Dad were sleeping and they came out to me watching it on the couch.
What do people love most about you? I smell good, I look good and I smile like an angel!

Your worst habit? Getting in the way of anything and everything that is unfortunate enough to cross paths with me.

Any funny or embarrassing stories you’d like to share? One time when my family got me revved up, I mistook a glass door for an open door and ran into it. Ouch!
What do people love most about you? My gentle and enthusiastic personality.
