Sweetest. Doggie. Ever!

It took a LOT of willpower not to ask walter Hetzel for the adoption papers right then and there. This chihuahua is not nervous, he walked right up to Aaron and then me, jumping to the point of walking on his back legs! Watch the video and you'll see.

One thing: his name is Kyper. yes, that's right, Kyper, as in the dance music rapper signed to Atlantic Records in 1989 with his big dumb club hit, "Tic-Tac-Toe" (which, hopefully, I will never have to play on the air!) Would I have named this pup after a guy who now does jingles for used car lots in Louisiana. Ah, no. I would have named it some kind of...well, anything but that. You can rename this little dog whatever you'd like, he'll probably respond to it. That's how eager he is to please!

Temple Animal Services is located at 620 Mama Dog Circle in Temple, just off 31st Street and Avenue H. To learn about adopting this sweet little dog or one just right for you and your family, click here for the City of Temple Website. They also have GIFT CERTIFICATES so your loved one can pick out the perfect pet of their own.

Be sure to listen in every Friday morning on K101.7 when Temple’s top Animal Services officer Walter Hetzel joins us in studio with another furry friend.

Our weekly segments with our pets of the week are brought to you by Rescue Magazine. All of the animal agencies in Central Texas are represented in this publication including Temple’s Animal Shelter.

BONUS: Here's a song about that breed that works well underneath the video with the dog.

SUPER BONUS: Here's a video of the biggest hit by the original Kyper, or as one commenter put it so eloquently on YouTube, "An idiotic video for an idiotic song!"

and here's what Kyper is up to these days, musically (that is not him in the clown suit.)
