So, I get asked lots of questions, and I love it! Here are some questions people ask me often.

Question: Are you a boy or a girl?

Answer: I am a girl. Though Sarah had the vet spay me, so I am sort of nothing.

Question: What kind of a dog are you?

Answer: Sarah calls me a mutt, but I prefer to be known as a dog of unknown provenance. It sounds so much better that way.

Also, I have no idea what kind of dog ancestors I have, so whatever guess you have is as good as mine! Lots of people guess that I am a doberman or rottweiler mix, but until Sarah springs for one of those dog DNA tests (unlikely, as she is cheap), guessing will be as close as anyone can come to knowing what I am.

Question: How old are you?

Answer: I don’t know exactly, but about 3 years old.

Question: How did you get your name?

Answer: My full name is Tchoupitoulas. Sarah named me after a street in New Orleans (she got me right after a trip there). Because that is a foolish name for a dog (not to mention far too long), she shortens it to Choppy in my daily life. It is a far more appropriate name for a dog.

Question: Sarah isn’t really that bad, is she?

Answer: They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, to answer your question, here is a picture:

I think that about sums it up.
