Together, forever! This is our motto, and it has gotten us through some difficult days. GPRA asked us to share a bit about ourselves, so here goes. I am Quin (the girl with the darker ears), and my brother and sidekick is Togepi. His name is pronounced – Toga-pea. Since humans have a little difficulty pronouncing it, I hope this helps. With all the changes in our lives, it’s very comforting hearing our names and receiving lots of love and affection.
As you can see from our picture, Togepi is bigger than me, but we snuggle like little dogs. We are desperately bonded and have been each other’s comfort space for many years. We love climbing all over our foster mom and jockeying for position to get the most ear scratches and belly rubs. We have excellent house manners, do not care about the food humans eat, and LOVE napping on furniture and beds, especially if there is a human with us. However, I’m sure you can convince us to love a comfy dog bed, too!
There are no kids in our foster home, but I am sure we will love them. As for cats, we think they want to play. However, they really do not want to engage with us. We will be great family members for a calm household with humans who have plenty of time to reassure and pet us… and keep petting us.
As easy as we are to live with, we will need a tall, strong fence that we cannot go over, go under or push over. (Yes, Pyrs can climb!) Things were not very good in our previous life, so we can get easily frightened, which is another reason we need a tall fence. Thunder and lightning are two of our least favorite things. If you help us find a closet or little hiding spot in your home and comfort us, we will be fine. We worry when our foster mom leaves us, but this is understandable considering we are still learning how to trust our surroundings.
Pyrly hopeful that our very own loving humans are somewhere out there…Quin and Togepi
