Roo, Chihuahua

As the woof-model for Pawsitive Ecology (the pet column at puregreenius.ca) Roo, despite being a blue tri-colour, is truly a GREEN dog. Roo is plastic free, does her best to eat a locavore diet, has her poo flushed or composted, and lives for chances to romp in the great outdoors. And being only four pounds, her ecological paw print is just naturally tinier than the average pooch.
