Name: Gunther, as in circus lion tamer Gunther Gebel-Williams and police officer Gunther Toody from Car 54, Where Are You?
Birthdate: July 12, 2017. I'm barely in my teen (dog) years.
Ethnicity: Are you ready? I'm a mix between a poodle and a Banter Bulldogge. I can't afford Ancestry.com, so I asked the Citizens for Animal Protection staff...what is a Banter Bulldogge? I'm told it's a "designer breed," a cross between a bulldog and a boxer. When you throw in my poodle DNA, that makes me a mix of a mix of a mix, like Jimmy Buffett is a son of a son of a sailor. Whatever. I'm a personality-plus fella, a real social animal. I'm little in size, but I'm a whole lotta love (Led Zeppelin song).
Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, November 2 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
Gunther's gushing: Have you seen the commercial with Weather Channel's storm trouper Jim Cantore bragging how DirecTV provides dependable public service during hurricanes? What? I'm a DirecTV customer. Service during a hurricane? Dependable? My TV goes out whenever it drizzles anywhere in Southern Hemisphere. Total crock.
