About these J.P. Dogs:
Daffodil, an Olde English Bulldogge, is three and a half. Periwinkle is a two and a half year old Jack Russell / Chihuahua mix. Daffodil may also answer to Dilly, Dill Pickle, or Pickle Head. While Periwinkle sticks to Perry or Pee Wee. Dilly came from a friends litter, and Perry is “kind of a rescue. I got her from a friend in Arizona when I lived out there. She was one when I got her, and terrified of every one, but quickly learned, and now she’s very loved by a lot of people.”
About these J.P. Dogs humans:
Dilly and Perry lives with her human, Erin, and Erin’s two roommates, between the monument and Forest Hills. Erin works at MSPCA – Angell in the critical care department. Erin lived in JP eight years ago, for about two years, but this time around she’s only been here since March.
Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
Both my dogs are quite comical. Dilly knows sit, down, one paw, two paws, high five, and roll over. If you know Bulldogs, that’s a lot. They both love the water. If Dilly sees her life jacket she goes crazy! Perry loves to “talk”. When you talk to her or ask her questions she gets super excited and stands on her hind legs and makes noises like she’s trying to answer you.
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
What’s not to love? They are well behaved, friendly, and so loving.
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
We like to head down to the southwest corridor and play in the grass. We haven’t been here for snow yet, but they both love romping in it. We also walk up Centre Street and the love the attention from the firehouse guys as well as the people walking by City Feed.
Anything else you’d like to share about your J.P. Dog?
They are completely in love with each other. Dilly is very picky about other dogs and she took to Perry so well. They do everything together.
