What is your pet’s name?
Sir Wilmington Murphy
What is the breed of your pet?
How was your pet’s name chosen?
We got Wilmington shortly after we moved to North Carolina, and before we could bring him home we posted a picture on Facebook with the comment “Name our dog.” Many suggestions came to us, but one of my friends said he looked “Royal” and we lived in Wilmington and suggested Sir Wilmington. We liked it and it suits him.
What is a fun or quirky fact about your pup?
We put an old hand towel in his crate that we both had rubbed our hands in to keep him company while we were at work. Now, his crate does not have a door on it, and he uses it as his “Safe Place” and bed. When he thinks we are staying up too late, he will bring his “Blankie” out to us.
Do you have a favorite walking route, etc.? What is it and why?
No real favorite walk, because we live in an apartment community, but he expects a cookie whenever we get back home.
Does your pet have a special talent? If so, what is it?
We have named many of his favorite toys. If we tell him to get his snowman, he knows what we mean and brings it to us. The same with many more.
If your pet was a famous human, who would they be?
Napoleon. He is only 7 pounds, but has no fears.
