Q What do you read?
A Not much. The newspaper.
Q Is Hoppy aware of what a big celebrity he has become?
A Oh yes, sometimes it gets to his head. I have to ground him once in a while and tell him that he’s not bigger than the world, but he loves being the center of attention.
Q What’s your most expensive possession that Hoppy has chewed or destroyed?
A Oooh, probably about 5 grand worth of clothes. I kept finding little holes in my suits and everything else. Then we figured out Hoppy was taking a bite out of everything.
Q Does Hoppy sleep with you?
A Not anymore. We try to let him have his own room. He’s turning 8, so it’s about that time. [A few days later Hoppy got to sleep with his master, who was celebrating scoring his first goal, according to Twitter.]
Q I don’t imagine you serve Hoppy wine.
A No. He’s 7½ years old. Once he turns 21, maybe.
