Pets of the Week May 6, 2013

Forget the artificial stuff, our one year old Whippet/Chihuahua mix “Sugar” is 20 lbs. of authentic sweetness — pure and personable, full of delicate energy but ready to relax in your arms like an infant; graceful, feminine, and runway model slim, with long willowy legs that fold up fine for a snuggle. Sugar’s outgoing, cooperative, attentive and smart — she’ll “sit” and “lie down” for a treat in a second, then fly to give her favorite rope toy a tug and run straight back to you, barely relinquishing the full-body wag that shakes her from head to toe (she’s a wonder on a leash, too). Sugar would make a stylish sidekick for any family and a sublime playmate for kids; a tolerant, trustworthy companion capable of matching their energy and thrilled to oblige; she says “no thanks” to cats. Meet our fashionable girl today and feel her stride right into your heart; your completely real friend’s here, waiting to give her unadulterated goodness.

Her name’s “Squeaky” but there’s nothing mousey about her — she’s more Grace Kelly stunning, a pristine less-than-two-year-old beauty who’ll take your cat-lovin’ breath away, with long fur the color of fine pewter, and a frothy white pendant on her neck too, all underscored by a demeanor as serene as her looks are majestic. Pick her up and you’ll see that she’s mostly air — that and calm kindness — she’ll answer your every caress with a quiet purr and a soft head butt, basking in your attention and ready to give back each appreciative nuzzle, in her own steadfast un-squeaky style. Squeaky makes friends easily with other cats, who tend to forgive her grand appearance because they know her niceness, and she has all the ever-purring patience to make a delightful cat-friend for kids (please remind them to brush her.) Squeaky’s currently ensconced in a Petsmart cat condo, where she can show off her clean box-keeping; go ask to hold her and see how warmly she’ll adorn your shoulder, your home and your life; and how easy it is to be smitten with a girl named Squeaky.
