Meet Bina. A close friend and supporter of Skylos Collective. She is a a feisty fluff-ball from Romania. Everyone says she looks exactly like my mum (who is a wonderful fitness coach - say hi here) and the vet thinks that I’m part-bred Carpathian Shepherd Dog, a pretty cool dog to be!
So let's get started, Bina.
What are your hobbies and interests? Birds are my thing. I know I can never catch them but I love a chase. Did gobble down a half dead seagull once. Mum tried to take it from me but I got it down quick! Have a stomach of steel so I was fine.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
I’m a chiller to be honest! ... we aren't so sure about this Bina - we know how excited you are with other dogs!
Whats your fav thing your owner does?
Belly rubs. All the belly rubs.
What do you like getting up to
Lying down. Eating. Seeing my baby niece. Guarding the house. I’m a bit of a home-body. Family is everything!
If you had a job, what would it be?
Security guard for sure. Mum says I need to work on my attitude, but I love to protect my pack. If you sniff me calmly, you’ve got a better chance of becoming my friend.
Do you have crazy dreams? Tell us about them!
I do a lot of sniffing in my dreams … on the hunt for food most of the time.
What is your ultimate must have item?
I’m all about a soft, bed or blanket. Can’t be sleeping on a hard floor!
What is your fav sneaky snack your family give you?
CARROTS! And any meat I can get my chops on but they’re not so generous with that :(
What does it feel like when you have the Zoomies?
HAHA I get tired quick. 20 second zoomies and then I’m lying down! But in the zoomies moment it's great fun... but like all the good things in life, they don't last long.
Do you have any special tricks or skills?
Pretty good at rounding everyone up on walks!
Tell us a funny fact about yourself!
I love to dig up the allotment and replant the veggies somewhere else. Mum keeps finding onions in her flower-beds!
After a hard day, where's your favourite place to decompress?
On my outdoor bed under the tree (guarding the gate … obviously!)
Are you a mummy's (daddy's) boy/girl or are you happy to share the love?
Mum likes to think I’m all for her but really … I love the men.
Thanks so much for your comments Bina, you are a real babe. Quick note - if anyone is interested in fitness coaching, we highly recommend Ashleigh (Bina's mum), please reach out to her via instagram here @ash.hambling and mention Skylos Collective.
