Do Tell: What One Word Would You Use to Describe Your Pet?

It's so hard to describe our furry friends with a single word, even if there are some we subconsciously associate with dogs or cats. I spent a good hour trying to come up with one to describe my pet – my friends' and family's suggestions ranged from adorable (my mom) to hyper (my neighbor), and I finally settled on "spirited." Sounds nice but still gets at my pup's lively essence. What's yours?

My dog was named Skippy at the humane society and we kept the name because it fits him so well! He's also bouncy...lots of energy and very eager for attention!
