Sirius of the Week for January 6 - 12, 2002

Meet Big'un. He came from Angel-Lite Maltese. He was born on April 10, 2001. His fancy pedigree name is Angel-Lite Chance's Cadmiel.

Big'un says,
I came from Angel-Lite Maltese (Secret: They have some cuter puppies than me, but don't tell Mom, she thinks there's no one like me. Visit their website and see what you think.)

  1. My dad's name was Chance of Windsong and I want to grow up to be just like Dad.
  2. She got the "Cadmiel" from an angel's name who was implemented in the destiny of humans. His task was to make sure that everyone accomplished his own destiny. His favorite sentence was: "if the soul goes to the right, don't go to the left." That pretty much sums up Mom's philosophy on life of "if it feels right, do it - or trust your instincts". I feel like I've pretty much lived up to my name. I've helped her fulfill her destiny of owning me, haven't I?

So - why does Mom call me "Big'un"? Well, she tells everyone it's because for such a little scrap of a dog (she considers 4 pounds little- humph), I seem to think I'm a "big'un". You're darn tooting I am.

Big'un's favorite toy is his squeaky carrots -- and anything of his mom's he finds on the floor that he can drag to his "spot". It seems she's developed a new place to "store" her shoes and knows just where to find them. Luckily he doesn't chew on them, just drags them around. He's also known for getting on the bed and hiding whatever paperback book his person-mom happens to be reading at the time. This is particularly annoying if he hides the book and she can't find it to read the ending. Another particular "joy" of his is shredding paper.... any paper.... and heaven help ya if a roll of toilet tissue gets left in floor.

He also considers the cats who share his home and Gretchen, the German shephard, as his toys. He delights in antagonizing the cats but they're learning he's harmless and generally ignore him - except for Crook, the white cat who enjoys a tussel with him. Gretchen has a hard time walking through the house because of Big'un. He stays right in her face.... bouncing up and down barking.

His favorite food is anything his person-mom is eating. He particularly likes cheese curls. His mom doesn't often give him "people" food because if she gave him some, the cats would expect it too and with 6 cats she'd have nothing left for herself. But sometimes he begs so prettily, she can't help but give him a taste.

You can visit Big'un at his own web page.
