A Special Interview...

Thonk... Thonk... ok... just checking things out here! Hi... this is Nolli. My Mom thought it would be a good idea if she could ask me a few questions and I could answer a few questions that people have left comments on... snerrqt! cheeeertle.... slwnp~ Ok.. I'm ready.

What does Nolli mean... or how did you get your name?

My real name is Cannoli Ettore... My First Dad was italian and wanted an italian name... so I was named for my Mom's favorite dessert because I am as sweet "that dessert" and my middle name means loyal.

Do you have a nickname? Yes... of course... Nolli, or No-No, Oobbee- a version of baby or sometimes my Mom calls me "pig" (from Babe)

What kind of dog breed are you? A mix of Jack Russell and Cavalier Spaniel... quite charming and smart!

How long have you been with your people? Well... my first people were a family of 4, with 2 young boys... I was a Christmas puppy and once baseball season started, they didn't have time to take care of me... so I went to a scary place called an animal shelter. I was there 2 weeks when my New Mom came and rescued me. It was a very happy time when I went to live with her, I was still a baby of 7 months old.

Do you have favorite foods? Ohhhhhhh... Yes! Food is my favorite subject! I do have a regular diet... my mom gives me good food like kibble and some canned food mixed in... but I love, love, love chicken nuggets! My favorite is from Chik-fil-A. Then... it would be a toss up between most anything my Mom cooks that is healthy for me... or when I get goodies like tonite... Mom brought me almost half of her bacon cheese burger. I ate all of it... lettuce, tomato and catsup too! (She did remove the onion first.)

What are some of your favorite things to do? I love to go to the post office with my Mom. She goes 2 or 3 times a week. I like to visit at the flower shop in the afternoon with Miss Joyce... she gives me candy corn or red licorice! My Dad takes me for walks up the street when it's nice out. And I like my front yard... I like to lay in the grass and watch everyone.

Do you have any favorite toys? Yeahhh... I have a stuffed opossum that I like, her name is Ruby. And I have a long skinny stuffed tug toy dog... his name is Booggly. I also have a little hedge hog... his name is Hedgy. I don't really play with stuff like Frisbees or balls...

Any favorite past times?... ...ummm... well... I do like to sleep on the sofa when my Mom leaves me but I'm not suppose to do that. She always says this word... "Busted!" And then I know I have to get down.

Any special talents? Well... I am a good communicator... I let my Mom know what I need... she "gets" all my snerrqts and cheertles and interprets for my Dad! And she doesn't care that I snore... Oh! My Dad!!! He taught me a great trick.... It's called "Gimme Paw!" If I raise my paw for him... he will give me my favorite treat... a beef and cheese treat! So... when he's not doing his work thing, I will go and sit in front of him and raise my right paw... and he will laugh and give me a treat. I even do it at night after I finish all my dinner and show them that I did. Works everytime!
That's all I can do for now... I'm getting tired... and there might be a treat for me at the end of all this nonsense! Oh, Can I tell you how rude it was that my Mom took my picture while I was sleeping in my bed! The things she will do for this "blog thing" of hers... what's up with that?
