Anipal Dating Game – Iggy Style

Do you remember when I blogged about Vincent Rocket earlier this year? Vincent is a beautiful Italian Greyhound, and one of my good friends on Twitter.

Casey Italian Greyhound Abused

Casey

He and I have teamed together to find himself a beautiful girlfriend, and to raise money for Casey – a poor Iggy who has been in foster care with IGCA (Italian Greyhound Club of America) Rescue Indiana since March 2010.

You can read about Casey’s story here (and please consider donating to the Chip In for his care).

When Casey was saved by IGCA Rescue, he was in poor shape. His previous owners had tied him to a table leg for over 16 hours every day with a wire cable! One day, he ended up getting tangled up in the wire and his penis was nearly cut off. After he was rescued, he did end up losing his man-parts and needing his plumbing to be re-routed.

A few months after that, the vet diagnosed poor Casey with hemolytic anemia – an autoimmune disease, in which his immune system mistakenly attacks and kills healthy red blood cells. This form of anemia can end up killing the dog, if it is not properly controlled. Because of this condition, Casey’s medical bills have racked up, due to complications and other illnesses due to his weakened immune system.

Read this poor Iggy’s story here and consider chippin’ in and helping pay for his care!

Keep Casey in mind, as we have fun and dig into finding Vincent Rocket’s new girlfriend!

Minnie Cuteness

Minnie is a cute lil Chihuahua with a big personality from Maryland in the USA. She lives with three other fur-family and her humans.

This is what the adorable Minnie has to say about herself…

“I will be 4 September 15, 2012 (almost 28 in human years), which is young enough to enjoy but old enough to know better.  I am a pure bread chihuahua, which makes me a hot tamale.

I was born right into the hands of my humans and still live at the same house as the day I was born.  My real fur momma was adopted and was pregnant with me at the time, but nobody knew and voila here I am.  I’m cute but cuddly and my picture says it all.” 

Questions and Answers:

Q. Beautiful laydee doggie, why should I pick you to goes on a date wif?

I am adventuresome and I will keep you on your paw pads. I love chasing the squirrels and would love to have a backup man.

Q. Wot iz your idea of a perfect date wif me?

Our first date should be just getting to know each other in the dog park. A sniff there, a sniff here. Barking and running would be my idea of a first date.

Q. Wot iz your favorite animal charity and why?

My favorite charity is a place called “House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary.” This home takes in the older pets who have been abandoned due to many situations, such as owner passed away, owner can no longer care for the senior pet due to financial reasons, medical reasons, etc.  These poor sweet seniors are abandoned at shelters and left alone after being part of a family for years. House with a Heart takes them in a loves them and cares for them until they pass over to rainbow bridge. They have been on the local news in the Washington DC area because of how wonderful they are.  Check them out – it will tug at your heart.

Q. Do you like to dance, and if you do, does you like to dance fast or slow?

I love to dance, and I think I would be a fast dancer to help me keep fit for my squirrel chasing.

Q. Does size matter to you?

It depends on the size of the what you are asking about (wink wink).

 Q. I iz looking for a doggie girlfriend who is lighthearted and funny, with a silly sense of humor, who is compassionate and caring, has a great imagination, loves adventures, and likes to dance and party. Does this sound like you? Please explain why.

Oh, it sure does sound like me.

I love to play jokes on my humans, like showing them how I got up on the dinner table to eat their barbecue when I’m only 10 inches tall!

I’m compassionate with spreading the word on adoption and putting those awful puppy mills out of business.

I care about my humans and my fur mommy and daddy and sister, and I keep their ears cleaned when they get dirty!

Q. What makes you better than all the other doggie bachelorettes and why?

I don’t think I’m better than the others; I just feel that with me you get a small package with a big zest for life and living.

3. Rusty Linda

Rusty is a beautiful female miniature pinscher born on October 2, 2003 in Connecticut. She is obsessed with her mom, loves her dad and all of her Twitter friends! (She loves looking at her anipal friends cute pictures! WOOF!)

This is Rusty Linda’s story in her own words…

“Mom and Dad got me from a breeder listed at AKC, and they were thrilled that I was  8-9 weeks old, ready to leave my doggie mom! So they drove to Connecticut to get me. Mom brought bones for me, my fur brother and sis, but I took all the bones and ran with them. BOL!

Then mom picked me up and I kissed her. It was pure love!

Because my mom is a choreographer, I’m never alone. Wherever she goes, I go, so I’m always in studios, theaters, and I travel everywhere. That’s how I’m in two music videos, commercials, and I also did some modeling.

My favorite thing is when we go to Brazil for christmas (mom is Brazilian so we go to hang with grandpa and grandma)!!

I have a liver disorder but I choose not to talk about it, cause it’s not fun and I’m all about fun!”

Questions and Answers:

Q. Beautiful laydee doggie, why should I pick you to goes on a date wif?

Cause I have lots of energy, love dancing, going out for walks, and looking for squirrels and bunny rabbits. And I can eat a lot – no salads for me!!! Oh yes, I’m a cute dog with long ears and I have big boobs. Hehe!

Q. Wot iz your idea of a perfect date wif me?

Perfect date for me is who you’re with and not where you go, so I would be happy just being next to you. Wink wink.

But if I was to take you somewhere, I would dress up as “Wonder Doggie”and take you to your favorite park so we can have fun – ZOOMIES time!!! Then I would take you to the beach and we can play with some beach toys there. Later we would have a candlelight dinner by the water, I would serve you some steak with bacon on top and for dessert – chobani with blueberries!

Then if you invite me over to your house, I would love to play wif Gino and would be honored to wear a little bell.

Q. Wot iz your favorite animal charity and why?

Mommy likes Bideawee, cause my sister’s trainer was from there and she found out how they adopt their pets and that they have a program that if their owner dies, they take care of the pet! How beautiful is that!

Last Sunday, May 6th, we did the Bark4life walk with mom’s friend that owns Charlie Chews. They donated tons of treats for the walk and the money goes to the American Cancer Society.

Q. Do you like to dance, and if you do, does you like to dance fast or slow?

LOVE to dance, love to dance fast. My mom thought me everything I know, but if i’m with Vincent and if the mood calls, I wouldn’t mind dancing sloooow wif him.

Q. Does size matter to you?

Yes. I wouldn’t go out with a German Shepherd or a Rottweiler, cause I look too small. I’m innocent … hopefully that is what you meant!

Q. I iz looking for a doggie girlfriend who is lighthearted and funny, with a silly sense of humor, who is compassionate and caring, has a great imagination, loves adventures, and likes to dance and party. Does this sound like you? Please explain why.

If you looked that up in the dictionary you will see my photo next to it!!! Wags very cute tail!

Q. What makes you better than all the other doggie bachelorettes and why?

I’m not better than any of my friends; it’s about our chemistry and what he wants in a doggie. Snaps paw.

 

4. Rosie Terrier 

 

The lovely Rosie is a 3-year-old terrier mix with perky ears and mischievous cheeks. She didn’t have the best start in life, but now her life is wonderful.

Rosie Terrier’s story from her own barker…

“My mum and dad had Tessa, my sisfur. They saw me at The Birmingham Dogs Home and I played with them and lay down for a tummy tickle. They fell in love so I went home with them. That was 2 and a half years ago.

I am very very naughty and extremely skilled at climbing large pieces of furniture to get a toy. I am very intelligent but had a bad start in life. Happily my life is now wonderful.  I loves my sisfur and my mum and dad.”

Questions and Answers:

Q. Beautiful laydee doggie, why should I pick you to goes on a date wif?

You should go on a date with me because I is good fun and very very skilled at ‘obtaining’ da noms. You will enjoy eating food stuffs you never had before!  Also I is always chirpy and my tail is enchanting.

Q. Wot iz your idea of a perfect date wif me?

Hmmmmmm – a perfect date with you would be a lovely run in a forest glade with lots of rabbits to chase and wild blueberries to gorge on. We would dance to the streams of music of a nearby disco and then walk side by side, paw in paw, to a feast of Chobani followed by a lovely cosy nap. (Sigh)

Q. Wot iz your favorite animal charity and why?

My favourite anipal charity is the UK’s Cinammon Trust. They provide care homes for older people where they can take their pets (This is unusual in UK). They also organise volunteers to walk older people’s dogs, so dogs and owners can stay together. This is my favourite charity as I can’t imagine much sadder things than a dog and it’s mum and dad being parted near the end of their lives.

Q. Do you like to dance, and if you do, does you like to dance fast or slow?

Yes, please. Fast, slow any pace – depending on mood/ music/ moment.

Q. Does size matter to you?

 Size – of course it matters – a steak’s gotta be big n chunky! But when it comes to boy dogs, it’s what’s inside that matters. So no, not at all.

Q. I iz looking for a doggie girlfriend who is lighthearted and funny, with a silly sense of humor, who is compassionate and caring, has a great imagination, loves adventures, and likes to dance and party. Does this sound like you? Please explain why. 

Hee Hee. I am all of these things! You only have to read my Twitter posties!  BOL -see I must be – I am a dog that tweets!!  Plus I showed Vincent how to make the best ‘pleading face’ for pigs ears 😉

Q. What makes you better than all the other doggie bachelorettes and why?

I is not better – we is all gorgeous. But I is an English Rose just ready and waiting to have funs with Vincenzo, and I would feel very very sad to see him with another girly ;-(.

5. Madeline (Little Cakees)

Madeline the YorkieLittle Cakees is a sweet-faced Yorkshire Terrier who is always ready to give love to everyone. She is one of the cutest Yorkies on Twitter.

6. Daffy

Daffy is a beautiful Toy Fox Rescue Girl who is scared of most everything, due to her bad past. She has a Fraidy Closet, and she loves chasing storms though!
In Daffy’s own words…

“I’m a 6 year old ToyFox Rescue girl. I lived atta bad place. They told me to go, so I lived outside and scrabbled wif chickenz for my food. I might or might not have eaten a rabbit, but I didn’t mean to. I just had to survive.

Then a lady got me, taken away from the bad placem and I found my mom. She needed me a lot because her beloved Dachshund had gone OTRB and she was very empty and sad.

I know a ton of tricks and commands and human words. Mom says I’ve never done anything bad. I’d be a good date cause I can act like a lady or splash in mudpuddles … I’m ready for whatever life brings.

Choose me !!! ArooOo!!!”   

 Questions and Answers:

Q. Beautiful laydee doggie, why should I pick you to goes on a date wif?

You should pick me cause I never been onna date before and I clean up good. And I’ve even done a fashion shoot with Elle magazine !

Q. Wot iz your idea of a perfect date wif me?

A perfect date would involve visiting a doggy shelter and givin’ the dogs cookies & talkin to them bout what they’re thinking and where they came from and how they ended up there. Maybe we could help them escape ! Then, after that we could go back to Kansas cuz I’m friends with the Wizard & he lets me keep my #StormChaser3 car in his garage. You could meet him !

Q. Wot iz your favorite animal charity and why?

There are lots of good shelters and I don’t have a favorite. As long as they treats the animals with kindness and compassion, then they’re good humans.

Q. Do you like to dance, and if you do, does you like to dance fast or slow?

Um, I’m a back-up dancer with the world famous band #ShibberingCheetos Twitter rock band, so I’m a super good at dancin. I like to really bop out but I’m good at snuggly slow dances too.

Q. Does size matter to you?

Absolutely size matters !!! If you’ve got a big heart .. then you RULE !!

Q. I iz looking for a doggie girlfriend who is lighthearted and funny, with a silly sense of humor, who is compassionate and caring, has a great imagination, loves adventures, and likes to dance and party. Does this sound like you? Please explain why.

    These handbooks to have a dating and how we should behave in the dating game I think is based on the experiences of others or maybe just from their own experience. They then create a summary and make a book of rules in dating.
