January Pet Of The Month: Herschel!

Oh, Hello there!

Hello everyone, I’m Herschel.  You might find my name interesting but it actually suits me quite well.  To sum it all up: I’m a gentle giant with lots of love and a goofy side.  My walkers tell me that I’m biggest dog out of all the other Canine Companion LA dogs.  I am pretty big but I still like to play with everyone else and act like a small pup.  I’m fairly new to the CCLA crew but so far I love it!  I like going for car rides to the hikes.  Sometimes I stick my head out the window and surprise everyone driving by; I get lots of smiles.

The 3 musketeers!

I also get lots of compliments on the hikes.  Everyone says how handsome I am, but I try not to let these things go to my head (it’s pretty big as is).  I’m really a down-to-earth mama’s boy who loves digging on the beach.  Don’t get me wrong my dad and I are best buds but my mom and I have a super special bond.  My dad took me in when I was only 9 months old (he has a thing for rescuing great danes) and boy, am I glad he did!  Living with him is so awesome.  They treat me like a prince and I’ve learned to let them spoil me.  I come from humble rural beginnings but I’m a busy city dog now.

Me in my happy place 🙂

I love to get out to the beach every now and then and spend the day digging and running around with my friends.  I like most dogs even though some are intimidated by my size but I have a ton of human friends, maybe because I’m their size?
I’m super glad my dad found me 6 years ago and has given me such a great life. And I’m even happier my dad found my mom 4 years ago.  We are the three musketeers.  Anyways, I was promised some chicken treats for writing this and I’m getting hungry.  Thanks for reading and give me some pets if you see me around!
