Pets of the Week January 21, 2013

Forget the “working dog” tradition his ancestors are known for, Siberian Husky and Terrier mix “Blaze” is way committed to play — the 4-year-old frisky, romping, prancing, dance around you kind. But call his name and he’ll abandon his game of fetch in an instant, give you a happy kiss and gracefully lie at your feet, too. Blaze was found stray — a medium-built handsome young man with miraculously gentle manners, genuinely wholesome and utterly charming, an excellent choice for even little kids; he’s friendly with other dogs and OK with cats, joyfully motivated by your attention and keenly eager to learn. Blaze is set be your stellar inside/outside dog; he enjoys a leash, keeps a clean, orderly run and is making good progress on his house-training. Devotion never smiled more genuinely, come today to meet your superb new son.

Her name’s “Zero” because we can’t begin to count all her delightful ways; her unusual markings alone are a treasure, as if at first she couldn’t decide whether to be clean white or soft gray; but they’re only a fun diversion from this 4-year-old’s infinite friendship, as vast as she is pint-sized, and patterned only with happy purrs, gentle head butts and intelligent meow-talk. Zero’s owner couldn’t keep her and regretfully turned her in, she gets along fine with other cats — dogs too — but you alone are the catnip of her delicately adoring heart. Zero would be a perfect pick for kids — cozy, affectionate, trustworthy and child-sized, a cat named for nothing who’ll be their everything. She’s already spayed and ready to go home, to complete the palace of your lap; come revel in the pleasure one little Zero can add to your life.
