Introducing Snickers

Here is Snickers:

He was the first dog my mom and dad got. When they moved into their home they wanted a dog but they weren't actively looking since they had just settled in.

One day they were at the mall to see a friend that worked there and they found out there was a huge pet fair with tons of animals. The animal shelter had a few dogs there, including Snickers. They walked up to him and he leaned against the cage and they petted him, it was all over. They filled out the adoption papers and paid their fees. That was on a Friday, they couldn't take him home until the following Monday because he had to be fixed.

When they went to pick him up he wasn't fixed because he caught a bad case of Kennel Cough. Mom stayed up with him all night as he coughed and she just cried like a big baby!

Mom has lots of nicknames for him: nicks, nickie-noos, sneakers, mr. snickers, mr. sneaky peakys, nick nack paddy wack, nicky noodle man, lil ol' man, and many more that I can't remember.

Snickers was about three back then, which makes him about nine now. He's a happy boy, always smiling, always loving, always loyal. He's my pal!!!
