I have a red-haired Pomeranian named Dillon.
We adopted him from a family that had 8 Pomeranians. They were moving out of state and wanted to thin the pack.
The man told us that if you want him to love you, give him cheese. Somehow, Dillon knows when you’re messing with the cheese by the sound of the package being opened. Even if he’s sleeping, he jumps up and runs into the kitchen.
I know they say that a man should not have a lap dog. Dillon is one of the smartest dogs I have ever owned. It’s a treasure and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
The Pomeranian is among the 20 most popular breeds in the US The breed’s first mention dates back to the 18th century and Queen Victoria played a major role in increasing its popularity in the 19th century.
People say that Pomeranians They are very good at manipulating their owners to get what they want. I find this to be true. When you want something, the strategy is to sit very close and take a look at it.
Dillon is now 15 years old, weighs 5 pounds, and is still full of energy. As Pomeranians do, he has been losing his teeth and refuses to be brushed. Due to his thick coat we have to take him to the pet salon to get his hair cut. His beautiful story starts to look like a Rastafarian, so we gave it a twist.
I give him wet food for breakfast. Every morning is like a puppy. Stroking, running in circles, standing on his hind legs doing a dance and becoming a little announcer, until he succeeds. Of course he eats and takes a nap.
The puppy has to be close to me. He follows me from room to room and is lying next to me as I write this article. He likes to be outdoors and loves snow just so it’s no deeper than high. Car trips are his favorites too and he just can’t resist barking at the windshield wipers. The ride gets noisy when it’s raining.
I have owned several breeds over the years, a Doberman Pinscher, a German Shepherd, a Great Dane, and a Basset Hound, and I must say that the Pomeranian is my favorite. I find them smart and loyal. I have a lot of fun with Dillon.
