Spotlight on: Biscuit the Pomeranian
I’ve known Parker for years, so when it came time to start writing up Spotlights, Biscuit the Pomeranian was a natural choice for a profile. And who can resist his cute little face?
Introduction: Biscuit is a Pomeranian. He shares his home with three other dogs: his mother Teddi, another Pomeranian named Tanuki, and a Schipperke named Kia.
How did you and your dog meet? He was born under my parents’ bed 14 years ago. We had many colors in that litter, black, beaver, and a really dark sable. Biscuit was just a brownish colored sable when he was born. Compared to the other puppies, he was very plain. So when people came over to hold and look at the puppies, nobody ever chose Biscuit to hold, as he was the least interesting looking puppy. I felt bad for him, being ignored, so I started to hold him a lot to compensate. After I started holding him a lot and spending more time with him than any of the other puppies I became attached to him.

What is your favorite story about your dog? In 2011 in the early morning hours of Biscuit’s birthday, a crested gecko (C. ciliatus) hatched. Biscuit was so thrilled with seeing a brand new gecko coming out of the egg. He even tried to help pull her out of the egg, but he was afraid of being rough with her and just brushed the top of her head with his whiskers. With that bit of sensation she popped the rest of the way out of the egg, surprising Biscuit. I feel it was one of the best moments we shared together. The gecko’s name is Keks, which is German for ‘biscuit’.
