Calm, cool and independent Those words best describe satin black Ichabod, a two-year-old shorthaired eye-catching feline stunner. Try to avoid the hypnotic allure and power of his jade green eyes. You can’t do it. He displays the stealth skills of a cat who would make a successful hunter. With his deep black camouflaged coat, he could be quite effective at keeping your home free of unwanted pests. But don’t assume that he’s all work and no play. Lounging and just “being” is a-okay with Ichabod. Yes. He is one cool cat.
Wallace is a two-year-old, golden brown and white American Staffordshire Terrier and no ordinary pup. He has door manners — he waits to be invited in and out, not forcing his way into your space. And he’s brilliant! All you have to do is ask and he’ll sit, lie down, roll over, and shake your paw, but not all at one time because that would be weird. Give him a gentle back rub and he will reward you with an ear-to-ear smile eliciting your mirrored response. What follows is Wallace’s gradual progression into doggie nirvana with his eyes slowly closing, his body becoming limp, and all leading to a grand finale of him stretched out on the ground in pure meditative bliss. You can almost see a cartoon bubble above his head that reads: “I’m dreaming of sharing my life and love in a new home with you. Ahhhhhhh. Life’s great!”
