Sir Kingston Lewis but he goes by Kingston or King
Music is a big part of my life so I wanted him to have a name that is representative of that. When I was in middle school I was obsessed with Fall Out Boy bassist, Pete Wentz. I decided to give him a long full name by using both of his middle names. Kingston is also a city in Canada that another one of my favorite bands, Arkells, mentions in a song.
Kingston will be 7 months old next week. He was born on November 8, 2018
I got him in mid January when he was 9 weeks old.
Kingston came from a breeder in Dunkirk, NY. At the time, I wasn't planning on trying to get a dog until my apartment lease had ended, but I knew most reputable breeders would have a waitlist so I wanted to get myself on hers. I contacted this breeder and she happened to have a puppy ready to go that week and didn't have a waitlist for the first time! My landlord gave me the approval and I took him home a few days later. It was meant to be!
He is very dramatic and will throw a fit if he doesn't want to do something. If he wants the window rolled down in the car, he will whine until I do it. If he's sick of walking, he will dive into the ground and lay there and make me carry him.
Once Kingston comes out of his crate, it is rare for him to stop running around. He's probably the fastest French Bulldog you'll ever find. It takes two people to catch him.
Anytime he plays with another dog he sticks his butt up and glides his head on the ground. It makes everyone laugh.
Nicknames: Kingy, Squish, King-King
Favorite Toy: My roommate’s cat, Kylo. He never stops playing with him.
Favorite Treat: Carrots, peanut butter, sweet potato, and Barkery pumpkin biscuits!
Likes: people watching on the porch, walks, jumping and rolling through tall grass, bouncing on the couch, big dogs, being carried
Dislikes: mud, puddles, sitting still, naps, stairs
Favorite Activity to do with his Mom: Kingston comes anywhere that is dog friendly! I won't often go anywhere that isn't dog friendly while it's nice outside. Every weekend I like to take him to a new dog friendly patio or take him for a walk somewhere new, and we always have a little photoshoot of course. Kingston also loves to come to cheerleading practice with me and is my unofficial assistant coach and team mascot.
Favorite Sleep Spot: Kingston sleeps in my bed and likes to lay horizontally in the center, taking up the entire bed.
