There’s no one else quite like Orban and no word to describe just what it is that makes him unique and dear to my heart so in commemoration of our growing love affair I’m coining a new one…Orbanilicious! What makes a dog orbanilicious? For starters, he’s the cutest guy in town and even knowing that behind his adorably puppy-sized body and darling ‘flipper feet’ lies a sad history of nutritional deprivation and long hours confined in a crate, I have to smile at the goofy scene he creates as he happily floppy-foots his way down the street. For seconds, he’s the friendliest, silliest boy ever and just adores meeting new people and dogs of all sizes and ages, wagging his tail almost constantly and stopping for how-do-you-dos with anyone who shows the slightest sign they want to meet him. Thirdly, you couldn’t ask for a more obedient or easy to handle pet and despite his habit of stopping to eat every other thing he finds on the ground, Orban walks like a little champ, sits (mostly) on command, seems house trained, takes treats gently, enjoys snuggles, gives kisses and has no objections to being hoisted over my shoulder for easy tote-ability either. In short, orbanilicious = Orban, the sweetest pet ever! After a rough beginning this tiny Prince deserves to live the rest of his life in the lap of luxury but all he really wants is good food, lots of friends and a loving family who’ll cherish him forever. Do yourself a favor and ask to meet him today.
