Pets of the Week – February 11, 2013 (Merri and Vlad)

He comes courting with a sampler of plush head butts, soft nudges and polite hello-purrs, an apple-headed 10 lb.-and-full-grown tiger boy who’ll easily ensconce himself as the apple of your eye, testimony to how far the gentle side of masculine will go. “Vlad” was found stray and delivered to us, now his gratitude shines clearly in his perceptive emerald eyes;

Pets of the Week – January 28, 2013 (Flip Flop)

At a little over a year old she’s an immaculate example of family dog talent; she’ll romp the yard, toss a ball,

Pets of the Week – December 10, 2012

Her cool was as flawless as her warm response to the crowd at the recent Pet Smart event; but then well-rounded — and fun loving — perfection is Paula’s downright model-dog trademark. Her curly-tailed 17 lb. Terrier/Chihuahua/mix composure is ginormous, even when engulfed by noisy kids and mastiff-sized canines; and she seems to be house-trained,
