Pets of the Week February 11, 2013

Chocolate diamonds are all the rage for Valentine’s; but the kind that are already polished aren’t nearly as captivating as our year-and-a-half-young Lab mix “Merri” — she’s 45 lbs. of full throttle Fun-O-Meter, and her tender affection is equally dazzling. Merri came to us originally as a stray and she’s a trainer’s dream-girl — alert, attentive, treat-motivated and yearning to please; she adores a rope toy and throws her own tennis ball too, but she’ll abandon them both to race back to you. Merri would make a priceless companion for kids of all ages, she’s OK with cats and would enjoy being your only dog — her perfect setting is a devoted home with a spacious yard for romping and lots of love to give back. Romance rings true right here, right now; come behold a gleaming gem named Merri who’ll grace your calling heart forever.

He comes courting with a sampler of plush head butts, soft nudges and polite hello-purrs, an apple-headed 10 lb.-and-full-grown tiger boy who’ll easily ensconce himself as the apple of your eye, testimony to how far the gentle side of masculine will go. “Vlad” was found stray and delivered to us, now his gratitude shines clearly in his perceptive emerald eyes; he’s too good at being friends with other cats, dogs, kids — and you —- to live alone, and besides it’d be a waste of his innate civility, and his debonair good looks too (he has a long undercoat just peeking out, another distinctive understatement of his well-bred mystery background.) Your handsome suitor Vlad is waiting to woo you at PetSmart; a more gallant lifelong companion you’ll never thrill to meet.
