Pets of the Week October 22, 2012

The Shih Tzu’s been prized by Chinese royals for a thousand years and is now one of country’s our most popular breeds — meet our wonder dog “Wanda” and you’ll see precisely why. True to her noble ancestry she’s vivacious, alert and trusting, as full of kisses as she is of play — a newly clipped black and white beauty, ready for your embrace. Wanda was found stray in Greenwood, someone’s cherished lap dog lost or abandoned; now she’s wants to make up for lost time by loving you all the more. Wanda enjoys other dogs but steers clear of cats; she’d make a joyous playmate for bigger kids, and she seems to have a background in house training; she’s so smart and eager to learn she’ll polish up perfectly in no time. See what a consummate companion dog looks like, and let your glorious new friendship with Wanda begin today.

Wilma loves making waves, but not the irksome kind — this enchanting little inventor with the pastel tri-color stripes will drag her heavy water bowl just enough to make the water slosh inside, then drink while it’s still moving, delicious! Four-year-old Wilma was found stray but now she’s ready for high-society; she’s full grown, forever small, and her playful appeal could hardly be bigger: she’s quick to come when you call, intrigued with a fine meow-to-person chat, and she adores a game of hide-n-seek too, as long as she finds YOU. Wilma gets along well with other cats and her well-mannered, attentive ways make her a delightful choice for children. Meet the pretty little girl packed with personhood, Wilma will devote herself to you and show you how deeply fulfilling — and fascinating — a feline friendship can be.
