Pet of the Week: Tootsie

Ava Rakowski , Contributing Writer

She likes chicken, pizza crust, and chips, as well as playing in the snow.”

This is Tootsie Rakowski, an eight year old cockapoo, with curly ears and tan fur. The Rakowski family adopted Tootsie in 2008, and she could fit in a shoe back then. She weighs about twenty pounds now, but don’t let her size fool you, she takes up the entire couch when taking a nap. She likes chicken, pizza crust, and chips, as well as playing in the snow. Tootsie is a bit of a diva, however. She won’t get her paws wet when it’s raining and will rarely sit still for a picture. Tootsie must assume that she has a maid, because she leaves her toys all over the house. She hates motorcycles, fireworks, and thunder. But even though she is a bit of a prima donna, she is an integral part of the family.
