Templeton Moss was found in a duffel bag in the Hartford, Connecticut YMCA by an elderly pet shop owner who, due to his poor eyesight, mistook the child for a puppy. Templeton lived the next several years as a dog in the front window of the old man's store before he was adopted by a nice couple from New Haven who named him after that one guy from The A-Team. Today, he can normally be found napping, talking to inanimate objects and playing Hungry, Hungry Hippos. His greatest ambition in life is to either be a professional writer or a Muppet.
