Pets of the Month
Please submit your story and photos to email@example.com and each month we will select a few pets of the month.
Harley is the most laid back, relaxed long-haired Chihuahua you will ever meet! He is 7 yrs old and enjoys floating in the pool, tagging along with his owner Katie on car rides, and sleeping! Harley refuses to believe he is a dog. You will find him sitting in many human-like positions and laying down on his back to sleep under covers like a human!
His christian name is Gaylord Faulker Grimm, but goes by Baby Gay or Gay-Gay. He was born on Memorial day 2007 in a barn in Elmwood, IL. He has 1 orange brother Jimmy Carter & 2 dog brothers Ronnie Reagan & JFK. Gay enjoys eating & sleeping, he was at 21.7 lbs, but I’ve put him on a diet. He can usually be found sunning himself under a window or staring out a glass door. He wants love & attention on his time. He likes to headbutt you when he wants a pat, & enjoys moving/pcsing as he can try to sit on your head while driving & he yowls from the back seat. He is large & in charge & rules the house. He puts his 40 lbs brothers in place with his trademark headbutt!
Joey thinks his tail is too sexy for this chair! Joey is our Paws Rescue baby. It’s been over a year. Amazing what love can do. He went from ordinary to extraordinary! Paul and I want to thank all of you at 2nd Ave Animal Hospital for being so kind and understanding with us and Joey(especially Claudia). Claudia has been a huge part of Joey trusting people again. She’s always so kind and patient. I’ve enclosed a few pictures for pet of the month. I think he’s pet of the year really.. but that’s a Mom talking. Warmest Regards, Laurie and Paul Hanna
Prissy has been a member of our family now for over a year. She is a Mi-Ki, which is thought to be an Asian breed that came to the US in the 1980’s. Her temperament is calm, affectionate, and very sweet. When researching the characteristics I was hoping for in a companion for myself, my husband, and children I immediately knew this was the one for our family. Prissy has been more than we ever could have hoped; everyone that she comes into contact with loves her. My only reservation is always explaining, “What is a Mi-Ki?”
Caboose and LarryHeading
This is Caboose and Larry – They are the best brothers to each other. They follow each other around, defend each other, help each other with potty training and love cuddling. Like all brothers they fight too, and it’s adorable when they run to their corners, Larry carrying Caboose’s huge bone, and Caboose carrying Larry’s little hedgehog squeaky toy. They are definitely the cutest pups around!
Jasmine and CricketHeading
Jasmine is my 11 year old black haired cat. She has a white spot on her neck. She hates going to the doc (sorry Dr Lefranc), so no one there gets to see her sweet side. I adopted her from the Humane Society on May 24, 1988. She’s never been a cuddler, but she follows me around all the time. I work at home, and most days, she sits in her “day bed” behind my desk supervising me. She is my precious baby!
Cricket is my 2 1/2-year-old grey tabby with white feet. I adopted her on April 22, 2007 from PAWS. She’s a talker. Whenever she wants something, she tells you about it. She likes to drink water out of the bathroom faucet. She’s not a cuddler either, but like her sister, she follows me around.
In this picture, they are watching the birds and squirrels from the comfort of their home….and making their plans for world domination! I’m their mom, Deneese, and I have no doubts these two could take over the world!
This picture is of our Jack Russell, Daisy Loo. I had rescued a German Shepherd (Buddy) puppy from the dumpster behind my work place. This is Daisy after she took Buddy’s toy. Notice the guilty look on her face! lol..
Bowzer on top of HoneyHeading
Pufy, Mani and Lola HernándezHeading
Here is Axel, (red nose Pit-Bull) our new edition to our family of ten. He had a bad case of mange when we got him but due to the great veterinary care and all the loving he has received, he has made a full recovery. He is the sweetest puppy. I look forward to spending some awesome years with him.
My Benji!!! what can I say about him!
Benji is a rescue dog from the Humane Society. We adopted Benji 2 years ago from PetSmart. A rescue volunteer found Benji on the side of the highway. He was just a bag of bones when she found him. She took care of him for about 2 weeks before we saw him. I knew he was meant for us when we walked up and all he did was lick, lick, lick, and lick. I picked him up out the kennel and he just held on tight. He was soooo skinny and scared. But he was the one. It was touch and go for me at first because we have three other dogs and wasn’t quite sure how they would like the addition. BUT they loved him as much as we did. I went ahead and gave him a bath and groomed his hair. And boy did he take off under the bed! Benji stayed there for a while and before you know it he was peeking out gradually every day that went by. He was timid to eat his food and drink his water. But you could tell he wanted to be loved.
Now these days- completely different dog!!!! he lays out in the middle of the floor! Not a care in the world. He loves to play and you’ll NEVER catch him without a toy in his mouth or beside him.
Every dog deserves to be loved as much as they love us. Unconditional love and total commitment to make you happy.
That’s my Benji!
Attached is a picture of my Bubba Bear. He is my 9 yr old long hair/maine coon mix. He has been a patient of Dr. Lefranc’s since 1999.
He was diagnosed on 4/18/08 with diabetes. He is an awesome fur baby! He’s very brave, strong, loving and purrs louder than any cat I’ve ever seen! He is also extremely patient with my giving him his insulin shots and taking his blood glucose count several times a day. I think he’d be a great pet of the month!!
