Pets of the Week May 14, 2012

There’s no official breed listing of a Labra-Basset, but our charming Betty Boop’s here to challenge that — hers is indeed a rare breed of appeal, and of her many assets nothing shines brighter than her amiable, outgoing ways, not even the sheen on her beautiful black coat. One-year-old Betty Boop was returned to us because she grew too big, now she’s dazzling one and all with her fun, adoring, ever-so-social spirit; she’ll follow you anywhere with a smile, an instant friend-maker, patient and gentle, quick to roll on her back for a fine tummy rub, and beamingly happy to lie at your feet. Betty Boop shows infinite patience in our busy office, even cats who don’t like her can’t turn off her friendly, accepting approach, and she’s fine with other dogs too, even those not as beautiful as her intriguingly well-made self. Betty Boop’s destined to be a selfless, loyal and trustworthy companion for kids and a prized family member; she’s great on a leash and is waiting to walk with you into a future as happy as her ever-cheerful heart. Come meet a new form of love, the kind that’s pure Betty Boop, and see just how special her gleaming friendship can be.

Take her down from her window seat and she’ll reward you with a wealth of affection, but Molly’s a Tortoise-Shell cat after all, said to bring good luck and even some financial good fortune — look into her gorgeous tri-color face and you’ll see she’s a bonus calico, too, long-haired and stunning. At 4 years old Molly’s just a little slip of a thing underneath her opulent orange and black coat; she was turned in because of pet allergies, and now she’s determined to enrich her new family’s lives with her soft voice, tender head butts and fervent ankle rubs, all wrapped in a profusion of purrs. Molly’s gentle, social and attentive, and would make a wonderful companion for your young ones; she gets along fine with other cats and she’s a tidy little girl; her box is neat and her alabaster bib and paws are clean, feminine and carefully groomed. She’s been declawed and so must stay indoors. If you’re ready to treasure Molly as dearly as she’ll treasure you, come hold her and feel the sweet prosperity she’ll pour right into your heart.
