"Let's go!"
Alfonso Bodoya at 4 Years

Alfonso Bodoya
Breed: PomeranianWeight: 10 pounds
Gender: Male
Nickname: Alfie
Favorite Food: Flint River Ranch, of course (he won't touch anything else---seriously) and "Beggin' Strips" in either Cheese and Bacon or Beef and Bacon flavors. Right now we're out of the FRR food and my husband bought him some "Pedigree." He's refused to eat and we're sustaining him with the "Beggin' Strips" until we get our FRR order.
Favorite Activities: riding in the back of the motorcycle, riding in the car, and sleeping.
Favorite Place to Sleep: on his parents' bed though he has his kennel and several beds all over the place.
Special Skills or Responsibilities: He jumps up when someone is going to pick him up: he's helping with trying to lift his weight. He's as cute as a button and everyone loves him. He thinks he's our guard dog, like all little dogs, so he's very alert to the doorbell.
Story: We adopted him in Colorado Springs, CO right before Christmas 2004. PetSmart had a stand for "The Lazarus Fund" from Pueblo, CO outside their store and I saw him there. His story is that they found him in Pueblo, in the snow, with a gash about 2 inches long in his back, and with a tumbleweed stuck on his fur in the back. They picked him up, closed his wound, and, realizing that he's full-bred, put his picture in the paper in Pueblo for 2 weeks on a daily basis, thinking someone would come and claim him right away since a white Pomeranian is not very common. As it turned out, nobody showed up so after the 2 weeks they "fixed" him and put him up for adoption 2 days later, which is when I saw him and fell in love with him. It took him a full year to learn to trust us. And everytime I had him in my lap in the car and we came to a stop sign, he would tremble. Our guess is that they threw him out of a car window at a stop sign/light. He's all over that with the exception of being jumpy at loud noises. He is very loving and is our son for all intents and purposes.
