As told to Irene Diamant
Fiona (female, two years old): I confess I’m fussy. You must be at least as smart as I am and good at throwing a ball. I love to chase a ball and catch it on the run. It’s in my blood.
My ideal mate(s): must admire refined, Blue Heeler mixes. I’m looking for a meaningful relationship based on mutual admiration and respect. Best if you don’t own one of those pesky little things called small kids. I am prepared to love, honor and sometimes obey you till death do us part.
Jake (male, one and a half years old): You can ruffle my ridges on the first date as long as I can sneak a kiss in return. I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, but so international that I can bark in Spanish and English. If you like a protective type of guy, I’m your dog.
My ideal mate(s): Do you like long walks on sidewalks, beaches, parks, the campo, downtown? Do you like to ingest a little grass now and then? So do I! I’m ready for a bond that last a lifetime.
Jessie (female, two years old): Don’t think I am a cougar because I look like a cross between a tiger and a dog. Any age person will do, I love you all. Large, small, male or female, it makes no difference.
My ideal mate(s): I am spunky, bursting with life, and a real go-getter. As much as I am independent and love the feel of the wind in my fur, my perfect type enjoys playing together. I’m flexible. If you’re sedate, I will be your calm playmate.
Güera (female, five years old): My name means Blondie, not war. The only time I feel cross is when another pooch is vying for your attention. None of this modern attitude for me! You will be my one and only and I will be yours.
My ideal mate(s): Life’s experiences have taught me to be cautious. Once I know you are my friend, that’s it! My needs are simple, just to be at your side, an occasional belly rub, a treat now and then, and my happiness will fill your home to overflowing with gratitude and unbounded love. Give me some time and I will open like a flower.
