pets teachWhat is your pet’s name?

What is the breed of your pet?
Dog – Black lab mix

How was your pet’s name chosen?
My husband is from southeastern NC and is a pirate fan; Teach is short for Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard. Teach also has a white patch on his chest like a beard.

What is a fun or quirky fact about your pet?
He has absolutely no idea he’s a dog.

Do you have a favorite walking route, etc.? What is it and why?
Teach LOVES the trails behind UNCW Campus and the Cross City Trail. There are so many squirrels, scents to track down and sticks to pee on!

Does your pet have a special talent? If so, what is it?
Knowing the precise moment a chip bag is opened! Even from outside, across the yard, he can hear a bag being opened from inside the house! Oh, and he can run really fast; like really REALLY fast!

If your pet was a famous human, who would they be?
Paul Rudd, definitely Paul Rudd! Whether Teach is tired, sprawled out on the couch, with all fours in the air or running around the backyard letting his “crazy” out, or giving you that sideways head tilt, we are pretty sure he is Paul Rudd’s spirit animal.
