Hi! My name is Jerzey and I’m a 7-year-old Golden Retriever. I like to counter surf (I’m really good at that). My Foster Mom thinks I move the kitchen step stool over to the counter and take things down to snack on when she’s not home.
I once took a whole Tupperware container off the back of the counter and very carefully lifted the lid and ate an entire container of monster cookie bars. Boy, did I have a tummy ache, and she was not happy about it either. Not that day or the next.
Another quality I have is I like to ride in the car. Foster Mom will take me to the garden, and I will sit in the back seat and not make a peep. I wish she would take me to work; I would be good like that all the time.
Things I like are my dollies; I carry them around, and I help my Foster Mom put her shoes away every day. Sometimes I will help her put her slippers away, too. I like to be outside, but only if someone is outside with me.
I like to chew up Kleenex and toilet paper and sometimes my Foster Mom's work papers (if she forgets them at home). This might be a bit of separation anxiety.
A little more about me: I have a detached retina and very limited sight in one eye. I also have seasonal allergies (Foster Mom feeds me grain-free food). I am OK with other dogs but I’m the alpha, and I can be bossy.
I don’t like dogs with cones on their heads. I resource guard my toys and food, and I don’t like it when people or other dogs come up to me on a walk. I’m a good walker but don’t like to walk too far. I’m not good on the bike path/greenway during heavy traffic times, because bikes scare me and so do runners.
