You might have seen William out and about a bit on various advertising assignments for blanket. He’s one of the group of adorable doggies that was especially photographed by Tonya from Tonya Pet Photography. As you can see, William is very handsome and always gets a lot of comments when we use him as a model for our tags (he’s looking so debonair in our Dazzle tag it’s no wonder it became a very popular tag!).
All the dogs that Tonya chose for the photo shoot have such great character and interesting backgrounds that we thought it would be fun to highlight each and every one of them – starting here with William (from information supplied from his family).
Hello, my name is William. I think I’m probably about 4 years old…maybe five, it’s hard to say as my first few months was spent with a family I can hardly remember now. They dearly loved the other dog in the house, and I had a little problem that was really hard to put up with…yep it was my potty training. Even though I was very young it was a bit much for them.
After a while I was given to another family, but with my boys’ tackle still in place it meant that I needed to be in care until I had been neutered. However, my new mom loved me even with my weird potty habits and boy oh boy did I ever strike it lucky! As the very handsome boy that I am anybody would have wanted me, but I so love my new family and mom! I’ve been in my forever home for over 4 years now. My new parents foster from Texas Italian Greyhound Rescue and I’m one of three lucky pups they decided to keep.
It’s been a little difficult sometimes as my mood swings tend to come and go – I’m so happy some times and others..well not so much, it’s just sometimes I need to be alone. I like my playmates, but I do like some time alone to think. My uncle’s house is so great, I go on vacations there sometimes, I’m the only dog and he loves me to bits, it’s a special trip just for me but it makes me so grateful too that I have a happy and loving family when I get home.
So, that’s me ,William, thank you so much Tonya for giving me the opportunity to become a STAR I’ve now made the journey from a rescue pup to one of blanket ID’s top models – well, it doesn’t get any better than that! (even if I do complain sometimes :D)
