Renzo Linguini – Robin Queen

About Me

I am by far the craziest thing that Robin and Susan have ever done. In Nov. 2001, they went to the pet store to get cat food. They saw me there, curled up in a cute little ball and without really thinking it through, decided to bring me home. I was about a year old and had been found running loose in Detroit. I was pretty skinny and full of piss and vinegar as they say.

Robin and Susan hated me for about a month and almost gave me back. I wasn’t very nice to the kitties, but eventually I learned how to play with them and Susan and Robin realized that they loved me. Little did they know that I was the start of a complete life change for them and the first of many dogs.

The funniest thing is that I’m the only “mutt” in the house and also the only dog who’s titled. I have my CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and an FDM (Flyball Dog Master). Playing flyball is what led them to Border Collies and I’m who led them to flyball.
