Wes LOVES his care package from Taipei via Australia. Thanks Erny x

What’s the strangest submission you’ve gotten?

There was one—only one—interspecies submission to BFF. It was a guy and his Chihuahua, who was named Baron Westchester von Tumbleton. I hadn’t specified that I was limiting this to human friends. He called me on it. So I wrote him and said, “If you have any human friends, you could send them in.” He did end up sending a picture of his girlfriend.

I have to give credit to who helped name wes
his full name is actually
Baron Westchester Al Faris du Laika von Tumbleton, III, esq.
When I was debating getting a dog and giving him a name
my mom wanted me to give him an arabic name, so she thought Faris was cute for him
so Faris is his middle Arabic name

du Laika is b/c my ex boyfriend wanted to honor the first dog in Space: Laika
who never came back. so this is in honor of her
actually I can blame him for most of the naming
I only picked the Wes part
