Pets of the Week April 29, 2013

If you think a Beagle should be part bugle, don’t bother to read about our handsome little Remy; even surrounded by a throng of kids at Petsmart, only his tender eyes spoke volumes, clearly expressing his calm devotion to love-snuggle-play, and a hunting ethic that leads only to you. Remy was found stray, a forever small, classically appealing 3-year-old who seems half lap dog, half zoom-zoom toy; he’ll settle into your arms like a warm child, ardently absorbing every ounce of affection — but put him down and he’ll morph into a merry blur, your very own racing playmate — gentle, exuberant, and so adept at chasing you down you’ll love being caught. Remy’s a friend to all, dog roommates included; his shy side lasts only a minute before his trusting heart shines through. Inside or out, he wants to be by your side; he’s clean and tidy, does well on a leash, thinks toys are a blast, and will happily sit for a treat. Come see how eloquently a Beagle can speak without ever bothering to bay; you’ll fall prey to Remy in an instant, and surrender was never so sweet.

“Patches” is an understatement of a name for her; her glorious tortoise shell-tabby (Torbie) markings are etched in orange, black and white so vivid even the latter seems to glow; but her keenly defined markings is where her edges end, inside she’s a dreamy watercolor-cat, a two year old girl suffused with tranquil sweetness you’ll feel the moment you hold her. Patches is another mystery-stray, an intelligent, soft-spoken beauty with finishing-school manners somehow homeless; we’ve seen her civilized approach win her cat-friends easily, and her alert, relaxed demeanor makes her a lovely choice for your little ones. Patches is currently reigning congenially over a pristine Petsmart cat condo (she’s proud to keep it immaculate). Go marvel at how fascinating her “Torbie” markings really are, and catch the calm of our splendid Patches as she purrs her first hello.
