Pets of the Week March 25, 2013

“Newfies” are known for being “nanny dogs,” but even at a year and full grown, this Newfoundland/Chow mix Porter’s more bouncing boy than babysitter; his white grin peaks out of his dense black and white coat every second; never was a youngster more eager to please, or more capable. Porter was found stray in Hodges, he’s 60 lbs. of devoted play and stunningly adorable; we’ve already taught him to “sit” and “lie down” for a treat, and we recommend sturdy kids to match his prance-caper-cavort tranquility — your yard will never witness a happier, or more loving, scene. Porter’s the go-to boy in his playgroup, his elated outlook extends to canine friends too, and he’s fine with a harness and leash, showing him off is a given. We invite you to count the seconds ’til Porter makes you laugh; feel your own tender smile emerge the moment you meet your joyful new son.

Maybe she’s a sport fisherman like her ancestors’ famous owner, but our six-toed “Hemingway cat” KC loves to paddle her magnificent mitts in her water bowl; she has the gentlest, cleanest (and most rudder-like) paws between here and Key West, and her personality’s as distinctively fun as her drinking habits. KC’s four years old, a roll on her back, rub-purr-thrilled to see you, inside-outside kind of friend, with a pretty brown face and a soft tiger body; she tolerates other pets patiently, but her focus is on excitingly human YOU. She’ll pursue you avidly through all your life’s deep seas; an everyday companion who never stops prizing you. Feel how flattering it is to be someone’s big game, and how lovely it is to be forever lured by a six-toed fisher-cat called KC.

K.C. is currently available at Petsmart located at 201 Hospitality Blvd. in Greenwood.
