PetSugar: When did you get your dog and what's his breed?
Beaner: We got Reuben in September 2008 as a wedding present to ourselves. He's a Goldendoodle, and we thought he was going to be much bigger (he's just under 35 pounds). I have bad allergies and asthma, and I've had no reaction to him whatsoever.
PetSugar: What's your daily doggie routine?
Beaner: We get up and he chases squirrels in our fenced-in backyard before he has breakfast. Mid-morning, we go for 30-minute run in the woods or an hour-long long walk around the neighborhood. After that, we pick up his best friend Colby, an 80-pound black Goldendoodle, and they run around our backyard.
PetSugar: What's your dog’s favorite food, pastime, and treat?
Beaner: Reuben loves ice cream. Every so often, I go get a creemee down the street, and I save him the very end of the cone. I've never seen his tongue move so fast! If we let him, he'd dig all day long in between chasing squirrels. He also loves to play with other dogs. His favorite dog treat are those dried sweet potatoes.
