Pet Picks: August 2019

As Groucho Marx once said, "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

...that gave me...paws...

Anyway, it's been a real joy looking through your photos and reading all about your furry friends. is proud to introduce "Pet Picks!"

If your pet isn't featured this month, don't worry! They might pop up next time. And if you haven't submitted your pet yet, be sure to check out how at the bottom. All pets are eligible--not just dogs!

And without further ado...on to the pets!

Chloe is a certified Pool Float Captain of the Highest Order. If you were to peek at Robert's phone, you'd quickly see that Chloe is his pride and joy--she's his wallpaper! No matter how many days or how many miles come between them, Chloe is happy to pick right back up where they left off when Robert returns.


Rowdy is a veteran co-driver with 7 years under his belt (collar?)--that's almost 50 dog years! He's Robin's very best friend ever and she doesn't know what she'd do without him in the cab, watching for cows, horses, birds, and airplanes out the window. If you see them at a truck stop, say hi--Rowdy loves meeting other road dogs and cats!


Daisy is complex--both a little loving darling, and also a little bum (that's "butt" to us Yanks). She's a family dog, so she stays behind when Pond Skipper goes on the road--and Daisy is sure to make each trip out a guilt trip as well. But when he comes back, all is forgotten. Daisy lays on the love...but makes sure to keep him in sight at all times.


A whoppensocker menagerie if ever there was one! If you'd like your pet to be featured, just email Some tips for a stand-out submission:

1. Your pet's name and sex

2. The handle or first name you'd like to go by

3. A few photos of your pet

4. Plenty of info about your critter, like their age, breed, personality traits, likes/dislikes, and stories about why they are the best!

Remember, the submissions we've already received are still in the hat for next time! The next "Pet Picks" come out Sunday, September 1. Thanks for welcoming this new feature with open paws!

P. S. If your pet needs a comfy bed or any other essentials, Bark has them! And, you get a big discount!

P. P. S. Did you know lazy eyes could be so cute? Chloe knew.
