Athena, the Dog of the Day
Name: Athena
Age: Two years, four months old
Gender: Female Breed: Basset Hound
Home: Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA
   Athena is our two-year-old Basset Hound. She makes us giggle every day with her goofy demeanor and singing howl. Her favorite things to do are visit the Dog Park, dive into fresh snow banks and lounge around in her very own recliner. We purchased this recliner a couple of years ago, and if we dare to sit in it, she'll sit at our feet and bark until we get up. Then, she hops up into it and goes to sleep. She has three beds around the apartment that are her very own, but for some reason she loves this recliner. Athena keeps us warm in the long Minnesota winter by lying on top of us, she seems to think that people are just another piece of furniture. She also loves to steal our socks and play "gopher", or "Go-For" Athena. She never chews them, just runs around the house with them leaving them in random places for us to find. Sleeping, squeaky toys and long belly scratches are the things that make her the most happy! Oh yeah, and giving sloppy kisses!
