My name is Willow Whilden-Spencer and I am a rescue Rottweiler who lives in Windsor Park. I was born on Election Day in 2015, so I care a lot about my community. I’ve been told I have really good eyebrows.
When I was younger, I lived on a farm where I played with a lot of other dogs and horses. I learned quickly that when I do good things I get treats. My favorite rewards are peanut butter bites, but I’ll eat anything – including strawberries from my grandmother.
Earlier this year I came to live with a wonderful family in Charlotte, where they treat me like a queen. There are a lot of things I’m getting used to since I moved to the big city. We don’t have runners or bikers out on the farm, so I may get excited and bark at them every now and then.
However, I’ve made a lot of new friends at the dog park, including Boone, Bruno, and Momo. I’ve also been walked in a bunch of neighborhoods, including Midtown, Belmont, Plaza-Midwood, and Uptown.
I love the greenway and public parks are my favorite place to poop (don’t worry, my dad always picks it up for me). If I could vote, I would vote for humans who will complete our greenway network, and make sure there are parks in every neighborhood so all dogs have a chance to play outside and be healthy.
Humans like to tell me that I’m one of the best behaved dogs they know. I rarely bark. I’m easy to spot at a park or on a greenway: if my mom is walking me, I’ll have on my pink sweater. If I get a chance to meet you, I’ll want to shake your paw so I can practice for when I walk for county commission. I already have a campaign slogan: Barks for Parks!
