Now for da Rules part.  And no, not Rules bout catchin boys, BOL BOL.

Bentley and Pierre said I could just pick 11 of da questuns dey wuz asked, so here goes:

1.  More and more establishments are starting to become pet-friendly.  What are you thoughts on this policy?
Bout time!  I should be able to go anywheres I wants, I's a lot cleaner dan a kid in a dirty diaper and dey let dem in everywheres.  I wouldn't scream in a restaurant, I knows to behave when food are involved.
2.  Have you ever taken your dog to a dog-friendly winery/bar/restaurant or attraction?  If so, what was your favorite place and why?
Well, I don't gots a dog, unless you are countin Finley and she'd probably bite me if I acted like I owned her.  But me and Finn has been to eat at EZ's in Austin and San Antonio - dey let dogs sit on da patio and it are pretty pawsome.  Da best part are da gettin slipped chikken and pizza bones.  And we's been in some stores, speshully when I lived in Cambridge, da peeps would let us come on in.  We went to Lush, which smelled really interesting and to a knittin store.  Ya know, mommas and da yarn.  Yawn.
3.  Does your dog sleep in the bed with you?
I let momma sleep in da big bed wif me.  Sometimes Travis too.  I has my spot at da end of da bed.  My momma has delushuns dat I are a stuffie and should be hugged at night, but I likes da foot of da bed.  Unless it are cold or I are feelin bad.  Den I wants to snuggle.
4.  Does your dog participate in any organized activity, competition, or sport?
Unless lying down on Zombie Patrol™ counts, den no.
5.  How do you feel about snow?
I used to like it, but now dat I are older, I are over it.  Bring on summer!
6.  Do you free-feed or do you have set meal times?
I get breakfast and dinner, both at round 10 or 11 (AM and PM).
7.  Have you used a professional groomer?
Nope, all my groomin are done by momma.  She has da teeth marks to show for it, BOL.
8.  What are you all-time favorite treats?
Nilla wafers.
9.  How many dogs do you have and have you ever thought or adding another to the pack?
It are just me and BFF Finley.  I are my momma's and Finley are my momma's parents.  We lives together now.  Momma gets Puppy Fever™ sometimes, so I try to limit her exposhure to puppy pics so she don't get no dumb ideas.
10.  What is your favorite game to play with your dog?
My favorite game to play are Pool Ball, which involves me floatin on da pool float while momma throws play balls for me to bounce off my nose.  I swims round and stuff too.
