Cosmo, the Dog of the Day
Name: Cosmo
Age: One year old
Gender: Male Breed: Shepherd Hound mix
Home: Hopewell, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is Cosmo. He is mine and my husband's first dog and we picked a wild one for sure. We rescued him from the humane society as a puppy. He was so cute and playful in the holding area I couldn't say no. Truth is, I saw him online and emailed my husband and he went right away to see if he was still there. Lucky for us he was.

    He is very protective of me and barks at anyone walking by. Sometimes he even barks at the wind blowing the bushes in front of the house. He loves to play outside and chase his squeaky chicken. He will also do anything for food. He sits, gives paw, gives five and ten, sits up and rolls over. He is so smart he learned to open the kitchen cabinet door just so he could play with the sponges underneath. Cosmo is also very curious, as you can see in the bottom photo. He had to know what that flashing thing was I kept making him look at.

    Cosmo likes to be the center of attention, too. If we are watching TV and he wants something, he will stand right in front of it so you can only see him. If that doesn't work, he will find something he isn't supposed to have just so we will chase him to get it back.

    I love coming home to find him there. He gets so excited he wiggles like a worm - it just makes me laugh and makes my day. I hope he keeps us smiling for a long time to come.
