Roofus the Lhasa Apso


Dog Breed: Lhasa Apso

Roofus's mom says: Roofus is a Lhasa aspo that was born as a "millennium puppy" on January 4, 2000. When Roofus was one, he was in a car accident that resulted in nerve damage. He has what we call a "lucky paw"/"bum flipper." But he is SUPER FAST on three and a half paws. Roofus hates being called "the dog" so his daddy and I have resorted to other nicknames like "THE Roofus" (as if there was any other), "Mr. Nibbles" (because he is always nibbling on some part of his fluffy coat), and his mommie's personal favorites, "Lovey" and "Sweet Boi." A good day for the Roofus involves sleeping -- always with his tongue out -- on his daddy's pillow in the sunlight. He enjoys watching 101 Dalmatians (the one with Glenn Close) and getting his belly rubbed. For one week last summer we watched two other dogs as favors to friends and family. We took the "rub a dub dub three dogs in a tub" photo during the visit by Pico (the Chihuahua) and Conrad (the cockapeekapoo). Every dog needs a bathtub shot.
