My name is Winsome and Whimsical Willie and I’m quite the happy and loving little guy. At two years of age and weighing 11 pounds I’m just about the perfect size and age for a bichon. I’m a friendly guy who is charming, sweet, affectionate and cuddly. And did I mention that I LOVE my walks and greet everyone I meet with a happy tail wag (and I don’t bark!) I also LOVE playing with my toys? Well, that’s just the kind of guy I am. You will rarely see me without a toy in my mouth. My foster Mom says I like to empty the entire toy bin daily and pick out a variety of toys to play with –and have near me. Why I will even nap on a pile of my toys, sometimes nodding off while chewing on a plushy toy. My BFK Aunties want you to know that I am not destructive though – I just really only likes soft toys that squeak.
I’ll bet you can figure out that I adore playing fetch too! I will run around after my toys for as long as you want to throw them. I also follow Mom around and like carrying my toy while I check on her. People comment that I am always wagging my tail (because I am happy!) and I love it when you talk to me. Did I mention that I dance on my hind legs for a treat (I do both pirouettes and squeaks) and also have a reputation for doing the most adorable Bichon prance. It’s a reputation I seek to maintain!
Before I became a FurKid I was left in a yard, where I eventually got out and was ‘on the street’. Why I looked like a wayward bichon (which is what I was). Then I found myself living in the shelter with lots of other dogs. I did everything I could think of to get out. I smiled a lot and licked hands a lot and, guess what? It worked! Now I have a foster Mom who likes to do walks, rides and cuddle. (They say I’m the one who likes to cuddle but I know it takes at least two to cuddle!) Grandma says I am a good listener and a great companion! I like to be wherever she or Mom is – but I am not intrusive. If I can lie nearby, that is fine. If I can be in someone’s lap… well that is even better!!! That’s why I’m such good company!
I also get along with the other little white fluffs in our home – and, while I don’t exactly play with them, they do help me to feel more secure. So having both two and four-legged companions are very important to me.
My Ideal Home:
* Someone home most of the time
* A loving home with kids (over 7 please) especially
* People who like to go on walks—and also like to stay home and cuddle
* Another small FurKid would be good for me
* Have had dogs as an adult
* Recent/current dog experience a plus
So if you are looking for a buddy to keep you company, “help” you in the home or yard – and be a wonderful companion, then I’m applying for the job! You will find no one more willing! Mom says I will make a wonderful addition to any family. With my big brown eyes and soft fluffy hair, I look a lot like a stuffed animal and have charmed everyone I have met.
I’m just a happy, mellow and sweet little creature who never complains, has a loving heart, a desire to please and a very gentle nature (except with those creatures called squirrels and cats. And that’s a different story which I will tell you when we meet!)
Tail wags and bichon kisses,
Winsome and Whimsical Willie
