Pet Profiles: A Little Shadow Named Sequoia

I may be biased, but how adorable is this smooshy and his oversized ears?! Proud mom Robin shares details all about this cute pup, so learn how he got his name and how he makes her laugh in the latest Pet Profile!

PetSugar: When did you get your dog and what's his breed?
My husband actually saw Sequoia at a pet store, of all places! We had been talking about getting me a dog since my husband was deploying in May 2010, and I mentioned that I really liked Boston Terriers. I was sitting at work on April 12, 2010, and I got a picture text from my husband of him holding this adorable Boston Terrier. He picked me up from work so I could meet the pup, and I decided he would be a good little friend to have! Sequoia is named after the restaurant/bar where my husband and I met in 2007.

PS: What's your daily pet routine?
I wake up around 6 a.m. and we immediately go outside for potty time. After that, it's breakfast followed by some cuddling. Sequoia loves to curl up next to me on the couch while I drink my coffee in the morning. Since I don't have to work in the summer, we spend a lot of time together. Mornings usually involve some playing tug-of-war and napping. The afternoons are more of the same; he's a 6-month-old pup so he needs a lot of sleep! Around 4 p.m. we go for a walk around the neighborhood and then dinner follows around 4:30. The rest of the day is interspersed with playtime involving tug-of-war and fetch. Sequoia is usually konked out on the couch next to me by 7 p.m., but his "real" bedtime is around 10 p.m.

PS: What's your pet's favorite food, pastime, and treat?
Sequoia's favorite food is anything edible or not! He's especially fond of paper, although I scold him when he tries to grab that! He loves his puppy food and he REALLY enjoys salmon treats. His peanut butter filled Kong toy is a big hit too! Sequoia's favorite pastime is sprinting around the apartment at full speed; I think he imagines something is chasing him and he just runs all over the place for about 10 minutes before passing out!


PS: What was your all-time favorite moment with your pet?
Since I've only had Sequoia for a few months, I feel like we are constantly making moments together. I call him my little shadow because he follows me everywhere! He cracks me up when he goes into "watch dog" mode. He can be completely asleep next to me on the couch and he hears something outside and pops up immediately and starts barking. I can't help but just crack up! The laughter he provides me on a daily basis is priceless!
