I'm Amy, and my husband and I are owned by Virginia, who turned seven years old earlier this month. Her full name is The Shire's Virginia Lórien, because she shares a birthday with the father of Middle-earth himself, J.R.R. Tolkien. We live in the foothills of North Carolina, where Virginia is the proud winner of Lenoir-Rhyne University's "Cutest Pet" Contest. (Of course a Boston had to win!)
Virginia's favorite things are taking long walks by the lake every morning (especially if she gets to pester bunnies or wild turkeys), napping, playing with her Kong, napping, sunning herself, and napping. She's trained to use dog litter, and she really likes this, especially when it's especially hot or cold outside. Her "turn ons" include apples, peanut butter, and cheese -- but then again, she never met a treat she didn't like.
Here is a photo I took of her earlier this month:
