Your Pet's Name: Lyman (also answers to Boo Boo)
When did he/she come into your life?: I rescued Lyman in September of 2010 from Bark 'n Bitches in Los Angeles, a great rescue place. He was about 6 months old and was a complete love bug from the start.
Where would we most likely find your pet in your home?: Laying on a blanket or throw or against a pillow, like how a human would use a pillow.
Pet specific features of the home: I place my Missoni for Target throw on the back of the sofa just so he can lay on it and enjoy (he also loves to cross his paws).
What do you love most about living with your pet?: Lyman is just the sweetest and kindest pup. He truly is a member of my family. He greets me every morning with a vocal hello (a kind of hybrid of a yawn and a grunt) with a wagging tail and, I swear, a smile. He is always friendly, kind and loves to cuddle and give kisses. Plus he loves to play fetch - I think he believes he is Retreiever instead of a lil' shaggy pup. I am so happy to be his mama.
