Tell us about yourself.

I am a happy loyal dog that loves to play and sleep and socialise. I am friendly and polite. I guard my home very well. I love the park and the beach, especially rolling in mud and wet sand.

Tell us about your home.

I live in a penthouse, high in the sky which gets lots of light. I have a big balcony, a rooftop garden, a big kitchen and long hallway, high ceilings and plenty of space inside.

What is your favourite part of your home?

Anywhere my mum is. I love the balcony or inside by the window where I can watch people and dogs outside on the street. I’m always hot so I like to go anywhere there is a cold draft.

Describe your lifestyle.

My dog concierge picks me up twice a week and takes me to Doggy Day Care where I socialise and play with other dogs and get groomed. I visit lots of local parks and go to the beach house on weekends where I have a large grass backyard and dog beach to rule.

How did your family choose your name?

My family chose one name each so I had four names to begin with. They took a vote and chose Taavi which is Finnish for ‘beloved’.

If you could design your own home, what would it look like?

It would be mostly an outdoor house with a mud pit and an igloo.

What is your naughtiest habit? 

I like a good howl from time to time and I like to bark to let my family know about other human activity, otherwise I am an angel.

Who is your best friend and why?

At home its Billie my 9 year old sister, otherwise Lucky the Groodle is my favourite dog friend.
