#FollowFriday: @SylvieDog

Name: Sylvie

Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound

Approx. Age: 11 years

Location: Morton Grove, IL (outside of Chicago)

Hobbies: Napping, tweeting, kicking @MugsyDog‘s butt, treeing raccoons (in my dreams), mixing cocktails, protecting my home from mailmen & deer & off-leash dogs, eating cookies

Favorite Foods: Cookies!!!

Bio: Sylvie was adopted from Orphans of the Storm in Riverwoods when she was approximately 2 years old. She had a litter of pups before she was adopted.  She knows when someone’s going through a hard time, and gives extra leans and cuddles to help them feel better.  As much as she pretends to be tough, she’s a real softie.

Likes: Cookies, blankies, beds, shaking paws, cuddling, leaning, tummy & butt rubs

Dislikes: Baths, toenail clipping, squeaky toys, rain, medicine

Biggest Fear: Loud noises (thunder, fireworks, whistles)

Sylvie recommends the following dogs who twitter for #followfriday:

  • @MugsyDog lives in my house, so mama said I had to recommend him.
  • @DiggeratGadzoo works for Gadzoo.com & even though his blog appears on newspaper sites across the country, he doesn’t let the fame go to his head.
  • @MozartDane makes some of the prettiest paintings I’ve seen, and it’s all for a good cause – to support animal rescue.
  • @MisterPeabody was one of my first twitter pals, and he’s a very loveable, funny dog.
  • @HouseofPuddles is a non-profit refuge for homeless senior basset hounds, HOP has 18 hounds in residence (including a Treeing Walker Coonhound!)
  • @LaineysPawtique has some of the yummiest cookies I’ve eaten, and I’ve eaten plenty of cookies in my day.  Also, Lainey is one friendly pup.
  • @Loupeb is generous with his nose kisses and always makes me giggle.  Plus he looks out for his twitter pals.
  • @Fergusthedog came from a shelter just like I did. And even though he’s always getting into mischief, he’s a real sweetheart.

    I love your story, Sylvie and you look so cute in your pictures (so does Mugsy but you don’t have to tell him I said that if you don’t want to!). Thanks for the woof-out.

  5. Hi Sylvie, I’m @leosulli. I read your story up there and noticed you live in IL. So do I! I told my mom and she doesn’t know where Morton Grove is. We live in Rockford, IL. I wonder if we are close to each other. I hope so tweet with you soon. Leo.
