LOVES: The sound of a family member returning home and hearing the name of one of our dear friends. Either event will cause Brick to scamper around and bark his happy bark. He likes to greet people at the door by jamming his giant blockhead into their stomach. HATES: Loud noises. Among Brick's least favorite are fireworks and the vacuum. Fireworks obviously don't pose a big problem but, thanks to Brick's constant shedding, I run the vacuum at least once a day. Click here to see more Things Brick Loves/Hates.
