KENILWORTH, NJ – Meet Daphne Kenilworth's TAPinto Pet of the Week!

Daphne Lauren Linton Reneau is a twelve-pound Shiba-Chi. This accomplished cuddler is equally at home at the beach or at a cocktail party. She appreciates all kinds of music (mostly jazz; mostly Ella Fitzgerald) and dances the two-step on her hind legs. A friend of hummingbirds and butterflies, she is the neighborhood avenger of squirrels and ghosts. Her uncanny little ears can hear her treat jar being opened from roughly 4.6 miles away. She has a deep passion for running errands in the car, watching others eat, and feeling fresh and clean after tolerating her bath. Daphne prefers winter coats and sweaters over her dresses, and will do anything for a Starbucks Puppuccino and wishes she was taller. She strongly believes no human outfit is fashionably complete without a generous amount of her hair on display. Daphne enjoys naps in the sun, vivid dreams, and cheese (except brie, which she will politely decline.)

Favorite treasure: Her blue ball.

Daphne is the happiest on the couch at the end of a long day, maneuvered into whichever position allows her to be touching all members of the family at the same time.
