Our December Pet of the Month is Calvin!
Calvin is a Shitzhu who moved to Iowa earlier this year from California! Calvin definitely has noticed the change in weather, and isn’t so sure about all of the cold and windy weather as of late! Thankfully though he has a coat to keep him warm during his outdoor adventures!
Calvin lives with his mom who is a resident at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Calvin’s mom is very dedicated to her work and works very long hours almost every day of the week. That means that Calvin is left to hang out by himself a lot during the week so he goes to doggy daycare some days and other days hang out at home and goes for long walks and adventures with Kelly from Everyday Helper.
Calvin prefers to call his walks “adventures” as he’s not so sure he enjoys going for long walks. He prefers to stop and lay in the grass frequently and even chew on the grass as he thinks it’s a delicious snack. Calvin also loves to grab one of his many toys before heading out the door so that he has something along with him to keep him occupied when outside.
Calvin is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever meet. He never barks, he never growls, and he never bits. He prefers to go with the flow, roll over for frequent tummy rubs, and melt your heart with his sweet little face in hopes of earning some extra treats!
