Special Kitty of the Day for April 25th

Name: Milly
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Seal Point Siamese
Home: Vermont, USA
Meet Milly, she’s my beautiful blue-eyed apple head Seal Point Siamese Cat. I got her and her daughter Izzy in 2008 after my cat Samantha went to the Rainbow Bridge after twenty wonderful years with me. Milly’s former owners used to breed Siamese cats and they were moving out of state and could only take two cats with them. Milly came with fleas and worms and a big desire to be outside hunting. It took a while but she adjusted to being a happy indoor cat who is leash trained and allowed outside only with supervision. She even got used to sharing her house with two pet mice and a couple of Betta fish (the only casualty was a packet or two of Betta fish food.)Milly is special because she is a typical loud-mouthed Siamese cat. She is a real motormouth and we have lots of long, deep conversations with her. She lets you know what she wants and when she wants it.(usually it is right now!) She is a great lap kitty and has a very loud purr to go with her loud mouth. She can be a quirky cat, she loves being rubbed all over, loves playing with her catnip toys and just loves food of all kinds! Milly is very direct in letting you know just what she wants, she will not be ignored, she will meow, headbutt you, try to trip you and even poke you on the nose with her paw if you don’t give her what she wants. Usually it is food or a supervised trip out in the yard but sometimes she just wants extra love and attention which we are more than happy to give her.

Precious Pup of the Day for April 15th

Finney, the Dog of the Day
Name: Finney
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male Breed: Shih Tzu
Home: Ste Anne, Ontario, Canada
Hi there! My name is Finney and I am a Shih Tzu. That means Lion Dog and let me tell you I am as brave any lion but far more important as my ancestors came from the Emperor’s Palace in China!

The first eight years of my life were very sad as I lived in a horrible place called a puppy mill where I was used to breed and never treated well or kindly and had no family to adore me … but then I was rescued and eventually adopted by my foster family who fell in love with me and couldn’t bear to part with me. I am now so happy and love living here with all the other dogs in the house – there is a Bichon called Ben who is my permanent best doggie friend and always at least four other foster fluffs to play with me when I feel like romping. Of course I am the Doggie King of the Castle but I am very kind and protective of them all (even the cat!).

Every night before I go to sleep on my own soft blanket on the big bed, I get to have a really good time and a play with my two teddies and a belly rub from Dad whom I love more than anyone in the world. I am so happy to be here for the rest of my life!

Yes, Finney is a real Dad’s boy and follows my husband everywhere. Finn is a real character and not a day goes by without him doing something to make us both laugh and love him even more. He is loving, sweet and kind to all the dogs he meets and we are very lucky to have him as our furkid!

Rescue dogs (and cats) are the best!

Precious Pup of the Day for April 10

Snicker Doodle, the Dog of the Day
Name: Snicker Doodle
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female Breed: Shih Tzu
Home: Boardman, Ohio, USA
This is Snicker Doodle. She goes by Snicks, Snickers and Doodle bug. Snicks is unique in that she uses her little paws like hands. When playing she will grab onto your arm or hand and hold on. She also loves her babies. Snickers has a big basket of toys and when you say “where’s your baby?” she looks around and find a stuffed animal. Snicks also makes this noise like a raccoon, its a gurgling high pitched growl and we have never heard another dog do this. And if you start howling, she will howl right back.

Snicker Doodle is our second Shih Tzu. Marshmallow Cream Puff, our first, is the black and white one. Marsh is not an outdoorsy type of dog but Snickers loves to sit outside in the snow, rain or sunshine. She will sit in the backyard and face the sun and let the wind blow towards her. She especially loves the snow, burying her face in it and running.

On her collar we put a little bell so where she was as a puppy we could find her. We never took the bell off so when we hear the jingling we know her cute little face is going to pop up around the corner.

Snicks is the most love-able and unique dog we have ever seen or owned. Her personality is truly one of a kind.

Dog-gone Doggie of the Day for March 16th

Buster, the Dog of the Day
Name: Buster
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Home: Roscoe, Illinois, USA
Buster was just thirteen pounds at six weeks of age when we brought him into our family. He was shy, timid, yet playful and full of energy. By the time he turned one, he was near 100 pounds and had become very protective of the four kids. He knows when it is time for the school bus to drop off the kids because then he gets to play his favorite game – FRISBEE. He will wait for you to throw his Frisbee, catch it, bring it back to you, and do this again and again without ever stopping. Nothing can distract him when he is playing Frisbee. You can try to give him his favorite treats — carrots, green beans, apples, and he will just turn up his nose because all he wants to do is play Frisbee. He won’t forget about the treats because when he’s done playing, he comes back in the house looking all over for the treats. He knows a lot of tricks. He can open doors. Although we are trying to teach him how to close the door behind him. He wakes each one of the kids up with kisses and nibbles on the bed. After each one is awake and ready to go to school, he lays down because his job is done. If there is any water outside, you will see Buster laying in it. He loves to play and swim in water. He’s not particular if it’s his pool or a mud puddle. Buster is such a huge part of our family. We love our Buster!

Dog-gone Doggies for January 26th

Riley, the Dog of the Day
Name: Riley
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male Breed: Dachshund
Home: Huntsville, Alabama, USA
Riley is our lighter colored Longhaired Dachshund. We don’t get a lot of snow here, but he sure enjoyed it when we did! Riley is the sweetest puppy!! Okay, he’s all grown up, technically, but he is only two years old, so he’s still a puppy to us! He is a little chicken sometimes but sweet! He loves to play and he is so fast! He loves to play with our other dog Toby, the red dachshund! He loves to play with his tennis ball and chew on his bones. I love him so much!!

He has so much energy sometimes we have to try to calm him down. His favorite toy is anything that our other dachshund Toby is playing with. He loves to chase tennis balls; he is really fast! He is great!
