Pets of the Week August 12, 2013

Call him and picturesque 4-year-old “Sprocket” will come flying to deliver all the reasons Beagles have remained one of the most popular American dogs for decades. Sprocket is 25 pounds of rollicking fun and pure friendship, with the even temperament and gentle disposition the breed is known for; hold him like a baby and he exudes armfuls of affection, put him down and he’s off with his playgroup, silky ears plastered back by his own breeze, as adored by other dogs as he is by you, and so cooperative he’ll kennel himself when playtime’s over. (Sprocket’s such an endearing achiever he even has ticking where his white would be, as if normal tricolor wasn’t quite special enough.) He’d make a classic match for your kids and an entertaining outlet for the kid in you. See all the heart in Sprocket’s singular smile, and meet your very own beloved Beagle today.

He purrs and plays with a black satin passion all his own; 4-month-old Tillman’s all boy and all crazy for you, but when he’s done nuzzling your neck with his silky face, he’ll find ecstasy in a jingle ball — at least until it’s time to snuggle again. Tillman keeps a tidy space for a kid his age, loves a great cat-playmate, and would make a delightful companion for anyone, young or old, who enjoys feeling like the most special person in the world. Hear how big a boom-purr little Tillman can make, and how colorfully devoted a pure-black little boy can be to you and yours.
