Pets of the week
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.
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.
