Townspet of the Week: Snickers

The Andover Townsman

---- — Anyone walking by the Wildrose Drive home of Maryann, Kathryn and Kim Uggerholt is likely to encounter Snickers. The 8-year-old chug — a mix between a Chihuahua and a pug — is a regular fixture in the bay window, where she’s often seen by passersby. Snickers is about as friendly as they come. The mere presence of someone usually has Snickers lying down and rolling on her back to be pet. Either that or she’ll excitedly wag her tail so her whole body shakes. Snickers is a very loud-mouthed, little dog, but to be fair, her owners say she is probably only talking to the other dogs walking by the house. She loves to sleep between legs and eat pepperoni when she is not sunbathing on the deck.
