Name: Declan. Originally my late mom's dog, she adopted him after he was rescued from a backyard breeding facility. She wanted him to have a fresh start and a new name better suited to his small but mighty stature. It means ‘full of goodness.”

Nickname: Little man, D

Species/breed: Yorkie, Chihuahua

Age: 11

Fave food: Puppucinos from Starbucks. It's an espresso shot-sized paper cup full of whipped cream.

Special tricks: Declan does not do tricks. Unless slapping me until I figure out what he wants and provide it is a trick.

Best quality: He loves a good howl sesh. We often start the day this way. He also loves the outdoors and is very active (as long as he’s got a warm sweater on) and this past summer he even hiked Franey Mountain with us.
