Girl Scout Visit

We had a visit from Girl Scout Troop 11927. They brought a bunch of dog and cat food, treats, and shelter supplies for our critters. We want to thank them on behalf of the dogs and cats for the gifts. Our more energetic doggy lodgers will be especially pleased with the large bag of tennis balls!  The girls seemed to have a good time and we enjoyed their visit.

Cooper is Pet of the Week

May 30

Cooper demonstrates his vocal skills.

“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.” ~ Orhan Pamuk

If you like hounds, you’ll love Cooper! In fact, Cooper would do best in a home familiar with the particularities and peculiarities of hounds.

Cooper’s nose rarely leaves the ground when he’s outside. Cooper is a very handsome  two and half year old Treeing Walker Coonhound. According to the American Kennel Club, dogs of this breed, which was just recognized only in 2012, are “alert, intelligent, active, courteous, and courageous with extreme endurance and the desire to perform.”

Cooper has lots of energy and loves the outdoors. He’s affectionate and wants to please, so he’ll be a great hiking and running companion once he’s had some leash training. A fenced yard is a must for this boy; like any hound, he wants to follow his nose wherever it leads him.

Slippers is Pet of the Week

May 23

Slippers enjoys a low key afternoon.

Starting Monday, May 23 2016, Slippers is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, and KIA Pet of the Week.

Slippers is a nice middle-aged cat who is happy to go with the flow of whatever is going on. If you would like to interact with her, she will enjoy spending time with you. Mind you, she doesn’t like a lot of ruckus. Preferring a more sedate environment, she gets little nervous when it gets noisy,

Although she enjoys company and petting as much as the next, she is not pushy or meowy and would be a calm, soothing presence in your life. If you are busy with something else, she will find a place to park and take a nap.
