10 Things to know about Gloria

1.) I am named after the Laura Branigan song "Gloria," NOT the Them or Patti Smith song "Gloria," but I've heard those songs are also about dogs.

4.) Dislikes: Chocolate, grapes, "those" whistles ?, skateboards, roller-skates and anything with tiny wheels.

5.) Self-care is a big goal for me in 2018; walk every day, drink plenty of water, get as much rest as I can.

6.) If you run water for a bath, I will join you whether you like it or not. I'll stay in the water as long as it is warm, and I adore a nice blow-out afterwards.

7.) I am a vicious destroyer of most stuffed animals, but am merciful toward a lucky few.

8.) My preferred seat is on top of any hooman.
