Pumpy is one of our youngest permanent guests. She is a canine genius which is her major issue causing her to be unadoptable. She can figure just about anything out or she barges her way through it.
Pumpy. For those who know her, they're aware she is a 40 lb fur-clad devil. Of course she's also cute, brilliant, athletic, and cannot be contained. She is slick and problem-solving...and that is why she is here.
She’ll barrel through windows, screen doors, leap into cars, jump on top of and climb hay rounds, trucks with stuff in them.
From time to time that includes launching herself onto the dinner table during mealtime. Which in Pumpy’s mind just makes sense. After all, the food is on the table, others are enjoying it, so it must be delicious and she wants some too!
Pumpy loves people, but she also likes to tease people. She’s great with the livestock and is hilarious to interact with and work with here at the farm.
Sometimes Pumpy has a bit more courage than she probably should. She’s highly intelligent and can figure out a work around to get into just about anything she wants.
She can be snippy and territorial with other dogs, so she is a dog that must always be managed. The majority of people don't want to put the time into a dog like Pumpy, or manage her intelligence. But we are thrilled she’s a part of the farm and she’ll join our other permanent guests in the daily fun we have.
Anyway, her favorite place to nap is on the back of the sofa. You can try to block her from the sofa, she will just knock the stuff off and claim her throne.
We really don't care that she sleeps on the sofa. The problem is she falls asleep and falls off. Twice in a day. You hear the BOOM and she comes trotting over and hackles up, typically gets snippy with whatever dog is around -- because obviously the other dog pushed her off the sofa (in her mind).
We have to talk her out of her sofa spill blame game so she doesn't put her pointy little teeth into another dog.Thought of putting dog beds on the floor but of course she would land on some unsuspecting dog enjoying some relaxation and immediately blame that dog for her current state of being gravity challenged.
Life with Pumpy. It is interesting.
If you'd like to sponsor Pumpy to help with her annual care, or gift her with something special, she loves a delicious snack.
