A few months ago, Frodo was the Friday Featured Dog on the Facebook page of his favorite pet store, Barkstown Road. Barkstown's owner, Kim, asked me to submit a few sentences about him, but I couldn't stop at just a few.
I could write paragraphs about each and every one of these things, but this is a good place to start getting to know him.
Fun Facts About Me: I am a 12-ish year-old beagle, rescued from the Mid-City Mall parking lot in June 2002 by a nice man and woman; they thought I was lost, but it turns out I was found. Until I had to retire because of a back injury, I was well-known as the fastest dog at the Morton Avenue Dog Park. Also, I once pick-pocketed a $100 bill out of someone’s wallet, earning me one of my many nicknames, The Artful Dodger.
Favorite Activities: Making “coves” with the blankets on the bed; walking to Barkstown Road for a treat; practicing my downward dog every morning.
Pet Peeves: Not being able to climb trees to catch squirrels; bad people who stopped good dogs like me from getting to walk on the Big Four Bridge; rain.
Special Talents: Detecting the smallest piece of pizza crust on the other side of the street while out on a walk; knowing the distinct difference in the sound of a bag of dried fruit vs. the sound of a bag of treats; looking cute.
Dog heroes: Hope, the Border Collie thrown out of a car on I-65 and rescued & rehabilitated by NoKill Louisville and the Arrow Fund; Ruby and Otis, because their mom owns an ENTIRE STORE full of treats.
