Pet of the Issue – Nugget

Submitted by Brandon Day


“Nugget wants respect and gets it,” the proud papa tells Beachcomber. The 13-year-old dachshund lives with Little Bear, a three-year-old German shepherd. “But he knows Nugget is the boss of the house.”

“Nugget sleeps in the bed with us,” says Brandon. “At least five times a night, he’ll jump out and wallow around, then growl and bark at Shea and I until we pick him up and put him back in bed.”
“When Nugget wants a treat, he goes in the kitchen and slaps the cabinet,” says Brandon. “And immediately after he does a number two, he jumps and runs.”
Designated driver Nugget enjoys a ride in the car with Brandon.
“We’ve had him since he was a puppy,” says Brandon. “I’m a dachshund lover, but this is the first one I’ve had.”
