"Type a paragraph in which you use at least two linking commas, two semicolons, and one colon."
Does the paragraph below match the criteria above?

My dog, Bruno, is absolutely amazing; he's so many things for a one year old Miniature Pinscher: funny, smart, athletic, and annoying sometimes too. He loves chewing rawhide bones all day; however, he chews many other things as well: his collapsible water bowl, harness, and even his leash! But thankfully, I've finally gotten time to train him and everything is now safe; that is, everything that belongs to him. He's now resorted to chewing my arm and brand new shoes; nevertheless, he is still the loveable, sweet, adoring puppy I met 8 months ago. Now, if only I could get him to stop whining so loudly when I leave the room for a glass of water.

Also, I need at least 125 (this is only 116 words). All of this is made up so I could use some advice on what to add.
Thank you very much.
