New year, new Pet Picks! Thanks so much for sharing your four-legged family members with us.
Be sure to tune in to "Pet Stop" with veterinarian Dr. Carol Osborne on the first Thursday of each month and call in if you have a question on how to keep your pet healthy. And catch our Feline Frenzy themed show on Dave Nemo Weekends on Sunday, February 2!
If your pet isn't featured this time, don't worry! They might pop up next time, and you can follow up with more information and photos in the meantime. If you haven't submitted your pet yet, be sure to check out how at the bottom. Pets of all species welcome!
MissBehavin's handsome little miniature schnauzer might be small in size but makes up for it with mega personality. He's a pup with three great loves: Tug of war, his human, and ruling the road. He loves relaxing in her truck and taking in the sights as they travel across the country.
Been on the road so long you think Highway is your middle name? Well, Highway is this dog's FIRST name. Highway is a 1 1/2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. She's also pure diva. Heck, you might even say that fashion is HER middle name. She loves her clothes so much, that her dad once took her shirt off, and Highway brought it back to her mom to put it back on.
Flying Dutchman's fur family consists of two dogs (Max and Priss) and four cats (Simon, Skitters, Snow, and Kevin). And like Flying Dutchman himself, the Newfoundlander and Burmese Mountain Dog just do NOT want to come inside, even when the Great White North is doing its worst. The cats seem a little wiser, particularly Snow, who might disappear in the winter landscape.
Well whaddya know! Olddogg got a new dog! And Olddogg's new dog will be a Road Dog, just like him. Checkers is under 3 months old and is an adorable AKC registered Chihuahua. Apparently, Checkers is also mildly terrifying, at least to Olddogg's German Shepherd, Dexter. Two guesses how the standoff in the photo turned out.
That wraps up this month's Pet Picks! If you want your pet to be a Pet Pick, we'd love to hear from you! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Some tips for a stand-out submission:
1. Your pet's name, age, 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 breed, personality traits, likes/dislikes, and stories about how they found you and why they are the best!
The submissions we've already received are still in the crate for next time, but feel free to follow up with more information or photos!
