Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  My owner and me

The thing that really makes me stand out is a lovely white patch on my chest. It’s almost as if I'm wearing a nice dress suit. I am a Terrier cross breed, who is almost six years old, and is looked after by Leo, a crafts person in Haldon forest.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite treat

Anything really. I am not a picky dog at all. Just as long as I get a treat!

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Best trick

High Fives. I give them really well, and they earn me lots of treats.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Arch rival

I really don’t like anything that flies through the air, like birds and planes. Why don’t they just use their legs!?

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite places for a walk

All the walking trails at Haldon are great favourites with me. I am pretty fit and love running, especially when Leo is peddling along on his bike, trying to keep up.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Water stops

I often stop for water just outside the cafe. It's refreshing after a long walk.
