Hi DailyBarker! Happy MAY! How are we already in the middle of SPRING? Does anyone else feel like the year just zooms by? Geesh! Well, I am so excited to introduce you to one of the sweetest faces I’ve ever seen! Kenzie the Cavapoo is a dainty little lady who was born the same month as Nash (they both just turned 1 last month…cue the mama tears!) I found Kenzie on Instagram last year and instantly fell in love with her sassy personality and cute face (I mean, I squeal a little every time I see her picture, she’s the cutest!) Head to her account today and show her and her paw-rents some DailyBarker love!
Now, let’s get to know Kenzie better, shall we?
What is your name?
Where are you from?
New York City!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I was born in April 2018 and I live in NYC with my pawrents, Kaylin Pound and Jeff Leder. I go everywhere with my mom and often model for her Instagram account, @hotdudeswithdogs. I’m very shy and sweet, and I love to snuggle. I also have a bit of a mischievous side. I like to steal socks and rip up toilet paper. At 10 pm every night, I also get the zoomies and make crazy noises while I run around our apartment like a maniac. My favorite food is peanut butter and my favorite toy is a stuffed bunny, which I bring to bed with me every night and use as a pillow. I have a lot of doodle friends who live in the city, and I love to go to the dog park for puppy play dates. I know a lot of tricks like paw, patty cake, roll over, sit pretty, and I jump through hoops, ring a bell, and balance treats on my snout. I also want to be trained as a therapy dog one day so I can help make other people happy. All around, I’m a happy, lovable pup that tends to steal people’s hearts.
Do you have any nicknames?
Kenzie Bear, Kenzie Doodle.
How many years have you been on Instagram?
I started my Instagram in June 2018.
What got you started on Instagram?
My mom wanted to share all of our cute moments with the Instagram community and meet other dogs in the area.
What does a typical day look like for you?
It depends, as every day is different. My morning routine is always the same — wake up, go for a walk, eat breakfast, brush my teeth/fur, do a little training, play fetch to burn off some energy, and maybe take a few videos for my Insta Stories. Then I sit in my mom’s lap while she does work on her laptop for a few fours. In the afternoon, I go to meetings/photo shoots with my mom. We also go for walks, visit the dog park, meet furiends for lunch/play dates, etc. After dinner, I love to run around and play with my pawrents, then snuggle on the couch with them until bedtime. As far as Instagram photos go, we usually set aside one or two days a week to do photos and the rest our content is captured sporadically throughout the day.
What is your favorite travel spot?
I love to go to the Hamptons in the summer.
If you could be another animal, what would you be?
A bear, because I look like a real life teddy bear!
What is the one thing, you can’t live without?
My favorite toy, bunny.
What is your favorite meal or thing to eat?
My favorite things to eat are peanut butter or chicken.
Tell us one random fact about you that no one knows!
I like to sleep on my mom’s pillow every night and I often kick her in the head because I have a tendency to “run” in my sleep.
