owner kelly kreth says, "i like to call mini a good dog that does bad things. he has eaten countless socks, underwear, chewed through two $500 retainers and a pair of $500 eyeglasses. he barks incessantly and annoys the neighbors. still, it is hard to stay mad at him: look at his face. he is also a dog of many disguises, as seen here: raindog and dog e. fresh. as a publicist by trade, i always try to promote mini. is there any wonder that the dog of a publicity seeker would want his own publicist? mini asked that i work on his behalf. he won't pay me a retainer, but he will eat them. he won't pay me for clips, but he will eat them. he won't shut up, but if i make him famous he says he might stop peeing on the floor. i won't negotiate with terrorists, but i will negotiate with rabid dachshunds."
