We have a special guest today visiting Powell Brower at Home and Gibbs is going to interview her.
This is Mocha, one of the pooches owned by Loi and Tom of Tone on Tone Antiques. We had the pleasure of lunching with Loi last week (will post later) and these two canines captured Bethany's and my heart.
Gibbs is still on restriction from a sore shoulder and by no means ready for socializing in a home full of immaculate antiques, but nonetheless, Gibbs wants to tell you about Mocha, and the life of a Designer pooch.
Gibbs: Hi, my name is Sir Gibbs and I'm eight months old. What's your name and how old are you?
Mocha: My name is Mocha Latte Thai and I'm going on 13.
Gibbs: You look like a giant Nicolas, my Shih Tzu brother, what breed are you? I sure hope you're nicer than Nick, he hates me.
Mocha: I'm a Tibetian Terrier, and so is my older brother, Panda.
Gibbs: You live in an awesome home. Do you have the run of the place?
Mocha: Yes, sort of, I'm allowed anywhere in the house but I have my special spot on the sofa in the kitchen and family room.
Gibbs: I hear your owners are famous Designers. Do they let you have special priviledges or take you on road trips with them?
Mocha: When they leave for work they let us watch tv all day. We are only allowed to watch CNN since the animals on the other channels make us crazy! We love to go on trips with Tom and Loi, and they take us whenever they can, which is pretty often.
Gibbs: You have a brother named Panda, does he play with you alot?
Mocha: He is kind of a snob. He is always in the same room as me, but he won't sit next to me or touch me. He isn't that much fun.
Gibbs: If you came out to my house, we could play in my big yard and I could show you our horses Willie and Thomas. They are really huge, but they are friendly as long as you don't chase them. Have you ever been near a horse before?
Mocha: We have seen them on tv and they drive us wild! We want to jump into the tv and attack them, so I can't wait to see yours!
Gibbs: yikes, maybe not a good idea!
Gibbs: Your house is all white and you look so clean. Do you ever get dirty or get in trouble for being dirty? I think that's why my color is reddish brown, the color of our dirt around my house. I was made this way so I can get really dirty.
Mocha: Well I do get in trouble for eating dirt out of dad's topiaries. I just started doing that since I'm a little bored with my routine.
Gibbs: Nice to meet you Mocha! I hope to see you in person soon!
A question to ponder are Designer Dogs the same as Dogs of Designers?
