We adopted our second dog two years ago after our boys somehow convinced us that Maya would be lonely once hockey season ended and our billet Zach left. We already had our hands full with the three boys on three different hockey teams, a relatively new company we were building and our Maya. We told them they were crazy…. Unfortunately, neither Luke nor I had expected that the most powerful argument in favor of a new Lorbach dog would be the sweet face of a puppy. How does one counter that very powerful argument?
Much like her sister Maya, Athena has a heart of gold and nothing but love for her family. Both our dogs are rescues that we adopted as young puppies from Broward County Humane Society and Rescue Adoption. Maya ruled the roost for almost six years by herself, when Athena was brought home. Athena especially loved her big sister when we brought her home, while big sis Maya was really hoping the new obnoxious puppy would leave. Thanks to twelve weeks of puppy kindergarten together, the girls bonded and have gotten along very well ever since.
Athena prefers her meals as an endless buffet. We gave her the nickname the Notorious P.I.G because she’s oinks like a pig after she eats and drinks and walks around like a boss. Her personality is as large as her appetite and her heart. She loves to run with Jake and I, even in the Florida heat, as often as possible. I always look and feel miserable when I run. I don’t run gracefully and it is truly a struggle. When the Piggy runs with though, she runs with a smile. She’s always happy. How she could possibly be happy while running 5 miles in the South Florida heat? I don’t know…
She’s the Notorious P.I.G. because she eats like pig, smiles non-stop and loves unconditionally and all with a larger than life personality. What are you notorious for?
