If your dog could change into any other animal - what species would they choose?
Probably a lion. Easton is majestic and stoic which reminds me of a lion. He is also a protector of the family. No dog can come between us without him barking telling the other dog that we are with him. He also enjoys wrestling and playing with us and is super intelligent - always ready to learn. Yes, If Easton was another animal, he'd be a lion.
If your dog was a human for a day, what would his/her day be like?
Easton would be go go go. He definitely suffers from FOMO (fear of missing out). He would go for a run in the morning, then a hike in the afternoon. He would probably meet up with friends for lunch and talk about the next craziest thing he's about to do. Easton would probably have groups of girls flocking towards him (this happens IRL haha) trying to get his number - take one of them to dinner for a more active date (maybe rock climbing and dinner). And when he got home, he would attempt to watch his fave TV show but crash on the couch because he's so tired.
Whats the story behind your doggo's name?
When we got Easton, we thought about all different names. We tried common ones but wanted something a little different. As a family, as also love hockey. Most of my husbands gear is Easton and I looked at it and said it and we decided that it fit. We decided that Easton was just the right name for him. Active, friendly, with a little personality.
How have they reacted to fame when they are recognized on the street?
There are people that recognize him on the street and it's more of a shock to me than to him. He loves everyone and wants everyone’s love - I'm not sure he knows he's famous. Easton doesn't judge and isn't snooty - he is 100% a giver of love.
Adopt or shop?
I honestly don't think it matters. I think that as long as you are ready for a pet and can take good care of them, why should it matter? Everyone is opinionated about this matter and it ends up dividing us as a community. We need to come together and support ALL pets whether they are adopted, come from a breeder, or from a farm. We all have the same goal in mind and that is to love our pets as much as we can. So break down those barriers and let's support each other - after all, we are all doing our best given whatever situation we're in.
What's the quirkiest thing your doggo does?
I would have to say the best thing Easton does is when he sees you after a long day. He will curl up in your legs saying hi to you and he's so happy that his tail is wagging and he keeps hitting himself in the face with his tail. OR it's when he knows he's in trouble and falls over on his back in guilt before you say anything...one of those two has to take the cake.
