Tuesday Spotlight- Samantha Doughty

*Name: Samantha Doughty

*Origin: Chatham, Ontario

*Years In Fort McMurray: 1 year 4 months

*Animal(s) (age, breed, name): Pedro,  albino hedgehog, age unknown; Monkey, ferret, 3 years old; Mya, ferret, 3 years old; Weasel, Boxer pup, 9 months old.

*Interesting Facts about your animal(s): Monkey and Weasel wrestle like they are the same species.  Monkey and Mya have been in our care for over a year each and neither has bitten a person.  And both love a good cuddle. Pedro can run on his wheel and poop at the same time… He’s a multi-tasker.

*Animal(s) Favorite Treat: Pedro loves chicken flavoured cat treats; Monkey and Mya love love love Bandits Banana treats; Weasel loves anything he can get his paws on… Especially food that he isn’t supposed to have.

*Animal(s) Favorite Trick: Monkey can sit pretty (for a ferret that is pretty cool) he also is the real weasel ball- I will include a video for your viewing pleasure. http://youtu.be/1xDEijwxOjMy

Monkey is also the  heavy weight champion of world puppy wrestling, at a whole 3 lb 3 oz, he dominates a 54 lb boxer pup.
Mya and Pedro are amazing at eating and pooping; is that a trick?
Mya has the ability to drag objects larger than herself under the couch. As long as they are fluffy. She one tried to drag the dog under… It didn’t work out well.
Weasel will wait like no ones business. He is a very smart pup even though he looks very dopey. He learned the agility course at the Bark Park at 4 months old in 1 minute.  The Bark Park is his fave hangout.

*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue: all of our pets have found their fur ever homes with us. All had previous homes; some more unfortunate than others. There are so many animals in need of patience and a chance, I’m all for rescues.

*Favorite Quote: “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men” – Roald Dahl
