January Pet of the Month: Norman

by Steve Feldman

Name: Norman

Breed:  Norwich Terrier

Age: 12 years old

Size:  16 lbs

Diet:  Castor and Pollux Organix

Cool Trick: Norman can eat with his mouth.

Favorite Toy: By far Norman’s favorite toy is “Mr. Sockie.” When I get a hole in one of my socks, I ball it up and tie it into the matching sock. He immediately knows it is his. And yes…they are clean.

Adorable Eccentricity: Norman….talks….chatters….bleats….sounds kinda like a bagpipe. Actually I don’t know exactly how you would label it…but he does it whichever describes it best. Check out “Doghorn” on Youtube and see for yourself.

Dislikes: Norman is not a big fan of “Family Guy.” I think he’s jealous that Brian can talk.

Things that make his tail wag: Pretty much anything has the potential to make Norman’s tail wag. Even though it’s only about an inch and a half long, he makes a gallant effort.

Funny Story: I try not to give Norm any human food, but I must admit that on the rare occasion I eat pizza, he does get a small piece of the crust to munch. One evening when I was watching TV (not Family Guy…so as to respect Norman’s fragile ego), Norman disappeared for a few moments and reappeared with some pizza crust. Mind you I had not eaten pizza in months…and I keep my apartment spotless. I swear he gave me a look as if to say “No way will you ever find my stash.” Does this make him a hoarder?
