How did you come into your family’s life? I came from Amish country in Ohio and arrived at 1AM. It was a rainy night and I was scared but once I got to my new home I was so happy. It was quite an adventure though.

What makes you the best pet ever?  Have you seen my cute face? I mean come on, I invented “Puppy Eyes”.


Why did you decide to enter the Tail of the Year?  My pal Abby Cadabby won last year and encouraged me to enter. Thanks Abby, I am following in your pawsteps.

How are you handling your new found fame? I have a pawty this Sunday for Halloween and showing off my sash. Everyone is invited!

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?  I would love to fly. I always love to stare at the birds and watch the leaves fall. I dream of flying because my paws keep moving even when I sleep!

What does it mean to be the Tail of your city? I’m proud of my city of West New York. Everyone makes fun of us because we have New York in our name and we are in New Jersey. But I want to change that and make sure to put WEST NEW YORK on the map that no one will ever forget. Can I get a WOOF WOOF!!
