My name is Finn and I am proud to say I am this weeks Pet Star! I recently had a check up with my new friends over at Acre Hill and boy were they ever impressed by my life story. Granted they have seen my siblings, one cat brother named Binx and my two cat sisters Maui and Noodle, for their yearly check-ups but this was my first time. Binx assured me that this was the best doctor he had ever been too and that I wouldn’t have any problems. My sisters don’t really talk to me or have much to do with me, but Binx is my buddy and wouldn’t steer me wrong, so away we went.
It all started out when mom adopted me back in January last year and at first, I was very skittish. I didn’t want to be touched or handled, but after a few trips to puppy classes and some tender love and understanding I started blossoming into the handsome boy you see today. You can also call me a world traveling companion because mom and I have been everywhere together! We’ve taken road trips to Colorado and Florida, and downtown Chicago is a fun place to walk around as well. We frequent the dog parks while we are up there, running around and enjoying the sights and smells of the city.
Sundays when we are home and not busy on our travels, mom and I love to go to the dog parks in Urbana and Champaign with a trip to Starbucks for a puppaccino or a stroll through PetSmart before heading back home. Once home I love playing with my deer antlers, because they don’t tear apart or wear down so easily, but I really just enjoy the time I get to spend with mom. One of my biggest pet peeves is when mom has to leave the house without me, that gets me really upset, but while she’s away she can check in on us with this thing called Furbo. I don’t care for it much, it doesn’t quiet sound like mom but it’s nice to know that where ever she is she still takes the time to call in and check on us.
Currently I am in A+ health and look great, so mom and I are getting ready for the Chicago Paws 5k run. It’s a fun event where everyone and their canine companions get to run, or walk, for a good cause. So, if you will excuse me, I need to go stretch and run a few laps around the house. If you need to get ready for a 5k run or even just need your annual exam done, run over to my new friends at Acre Hill. They’ll make sure you’re in tip top shape for any marathon, even if its just a marathon on the couch with your favorite human.
