Your Pet's Age
Your Pet's Breed
How and when did you get your pet?
Back in 2011, I acquired him from a man who was going to put him in a shelter. He was moving and couldn't take him along. Shasta's name was Kingsley at the time, and he was 9 months old. When I found out, I asked "If you're just going to put him in a shelter, can I have him?" And the rest is history
I renamed him Shasta, he was too spunky for a Kingsley type name. However years later when Tangled came out, his name should have been Maximus. Even though he was a 100% free dog, he has cost me an arm and a leg. He is a billy goat of all dogs, even his vet is surprised that he is still alive. I ended up getting him pet insurance, since he makes bad decisions all the time. Things he has eaten and survived (minor over night vet stays were inevitable, for most).

What does your pet like to do for fun?
He loves to play ball, mostly by himself. He tosses it up in the air like a cat, and pounces around trying to find it. He loves to escape. He is afraid of heights, so no worries of him jumping over fences. However, he will test the fence for weaknesses. And I've seen him shimmy through a fence like an octopus on many occasions. We love the Balboa dog park, so many friends to pally with. I tried sledding with him, only to have him jump on the sled as it started to pass him going down hill. Ended up badly, haven't tried it since. He loves sticking his head out the sunroof while enjoying a sunny car ride down by the beach in San Diego. He makes everyone smile when they see his bat ears through the car roof.
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
If you would like to see him say I Love You and Momma. The videos are on my YouTube. Enjoy!
