On July 29, 2014, Mickey turned the same age as BtS Radio host Mark Toubin. Though the Tullahoman born Brittany turned 8 as counted by the calendar, his dog year equivalent of 51 years matches Toubin's human age. Mickey's a friendly, sweet, gentle "medium" sized dog with terrific agility and speed. An excellent watch dog, his counter surfing abilities occasional outweigh that particular asset. Notably, Mickey can open any unlocked, levered-handled door and enjoys chewing the fringe off stuffed animals.
