What’s your pet’s name?

Mazie Grace.

What kind of pet is she?

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She’s really a Cavachon—her daddy was a Bichon—but if you look at her you see no Bichon at all.

Describe the day you got Mazie Grace.

It was a warm summer day in June. I had been talking about getting another pet to replace the one I had lost. My son called me up and said, ‘How would you like to go get your dog?’ I’ve had Rat Terriers for 45 years and that’s what I thought I would get. We went into a pet shop in Middletown and I feel in love with her. She was ten weeks old. She’s four and a half now.

Describe your pet in three words.

Bundle of love.

Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday? If so, how?

I haven’t yet really. I just tell her she’s a good girl.

Does Mazie Grace know any tricks?

Silly things. I haven’t taught her to do anything. Most of the time she just sits there and looks cute.

Describe a time your pet was really smart.

I don’t know if it’s really smart, but the time she took my glasses out of the case and chewed them and broke them! [laughs]
