The Legasthenia Therapist Dog Bore
Dog Bore: Felicitas Bedynek
Job: I´m a legasthenia-therapist and a becoming teacher for German and history
Dog: Sir James
Terrier mix, probably something like cairn- or Norwich terrier
Where's your dog from? James used to live on the streets of Bosnia and in a Bosnian kill shelter before he was saved by Animal Care International, who let me adopt him. Now he lives in Carinthia, Austria.
How did you meet your canine companion?
I saw James on the website of Animal Care International and fell in love immediately. I had the feeling that we would be a perfect match. He was one year old and nearly starved to death when I took him in, but now he is just fine.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Actually his former was Toto, but I thought "Sir James" is a perfect name for a dog from the streets with English roots. We also thought about Foxy because he looks a bit like a fox, or Monkey, because of Gossip Girl, but he is a real Sir. So Sir James prevailed.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
It actually hasn´t changed that much, because I take James with me, everywhere I go. He is a really friendly and curious dog, so it is great to discover new places and activities with him. I do a lot more of hiking, because it is always a great adventure and this summer we want to try stand up paddling and bring him to the boat.
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Solicitous, curious, pawsome
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?
James loves everybody, but his favourite person is my Mom. I have to confess, I´m a bit jealous because of that
What’s your dog’s superpower?
He can see, who has cookies is his pockets. And he is very caring and consoles ever sad one around him.
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
Mmm good question... I think, he would be a professional cuddler or a therapist.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
He absolutely hates cats and he is getting completely out of control if he sees one.
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
We love to explore the beautiful nature of Carinthia with all the mountains and lakes
Finish this sentence "a dog walks into a bar….”
….and every man who is looking for a good flirt hates him, because he steels all the attention of the good looking babes.
