Pet of the Week: Meet Bingley!
I got to sit down with Bingley, Ms. Kelly’s dog. The following is our short interesting conversation:
BL: Hi, what’s your name?
BK: Hi – my name is Bingley.
BL: Could you tell me a little bit about yourself?
BK: I’m 5 or 6 years old. I was living on the streets in Texas and got picked up and sent to a high-kill shelter where I was put on “death row”. A group called Eleventh-Hour Rescue came and got me in the nick of time; they are an organization that saves dogs from being put down and brings them up north. I was in a foster home for 6 months in New Jersey until Ms. Kelly adopted me!
BL: Can you tell me something that is interesting about you?
BK: Yeah, of course!! I have my own Facebook page and already have 43 friends in my account.
BL: What are some of your favorite activities?
BK: My favorite thing to do is definitely chasing chipmunks; they’re everywhere and really, really fun to chase. I also love napping because I need my beauty sleep. I love playing with Mrs. Burroughs’ dogs, and I like going for walks in the woods with Ms. Kelly.
BL: When’s your birthday?
BK: I don’t really know but my adoption day was March 13th.
BL: What things do you not like?
BK: I really don’t like baths, getting my nails trimmed, loud noises like fireworks and gunshots, and babies – they’re really grabby I’m more of the quiet type.
BL: Who are some of your other friends?
BK: Besides Ms. Burroughs’ dogs Taters and Pearl, my friends are Ms. Kelly and her parents’ dog, Lyra
BL: What words would you choose to describe yourself?
BK: Words I would use to describe myself are relaxed, quiet, and polite. This is one of the reasons my name is Bingley – because I am so polite, Ms. Kelly named me after a famous gentleman from one of her favorite novels.
BL: What are your favorite things to do in your free time?
BK: I have a bunch of toys and love to take all of my toys out. I will play with each one for about 30 seconds and then I will move on to the next toy in my box! I also love playing toss and catch with myself.
BL: What breed are you?
BK: I am half purebred rat terrier and half mutt (mixed). Ms. Kelly did a DNA test to find out!
BL: Thanks so much for having me, Bingley!!
BK: Yeah, it was really fun talking thanks!!
