My daughter found Chops about eight years ago, when he ran away from a pet shop where someone had just dropped him off. Because she wanted a dog, she decided to adopt the little bugger - and he is a handful. I hope I captured his huge ego, his "I'm in charge" attitude. Many years ago I spent 10 days babysitting him and we became best of friends, which isn't easy for Chops. As he's gotten older, he's become more accepting but for a little guy, he sure has a big bark!
