Pets of the Week September 16, 2016

She was a delicious hit at a recent event, with kids big and small hanging all over her; but then kids love chocolate, and 4-year-old Am Staff Terrier/Lab mix “Shana” looks like a chocolate sculpture — shiny, chiseled, and at 45 lbs., the perfect size for hugging. Sweet Shana’s as refined as a chocolate girl can be; she listens well, walks silky-smooth on a leash, will “sit” on command, and wouldn’t dream of jumping on you. She enjoys other dogs and running for a ball, too; but by-your-side is her idea of divine, she’d make a delightfully tasteful inside pet. Meet your forever-delectable family dog; Shana’s here, and she’s a friendship delicacy you’ll never tire of.

Her name’s “Sassy,” but the only time this tender 2-year-old complains is when you put her down — how, after all, can she gently knead you, kiss you, and caress you with her purr-words when she’s not next to your face? Sassy was found stray, a beautifully-mannered Tabby-girl with gold brush strokes interspersed in her soft, spotted fur, a hint at how special she is. Sassy gets along easily with other cats, but the prize her vast pink heart is set on is YOU. See how courteously a girl named Sassy can ask to be held, how eloquently she can thank you, and how perfect she feels in your arms, your home and your life.
