Meet Lexie: Our Page-A-Day® Dog of the Week!

Lexie, Our Page-A-Day Dog of the Week

Lexie isn’t technically a rescue dog, but I like to say that she is- she was rescued from a life without my love! She was named after a character in Grey’s Anatomy- Lexie Grey. I often call her Little Grey, for those of you who have seen Grey’s Anatomy, you’ll get it. She is a year and a half old. Her pink nose is her most famous trait. She is everything a border collie is known to be- hyper, has ADHD, and never tires. She is starting on learning agility, and it’s a slow process with her. She loves it though!

Congratulations to Lexie, our Page-A-Day® Dog of the Week!

Meet Tigger: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Tigger - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest WinnerFrom the moment we adopted Tigger on a cold October day seven years ago, we knew that he would be a special cat. Having weighed just 1 pound and been infected with fleas and worms when we first got him, he has come a long way in the years ever since – he now weighs 17 pounds, is flea- and worm-free and is happy as a lark. He purrs all the time and is the perfect “gentleman” to our two other cats (his sisters) Petunia and Kanga, letting them eat his food and even helping them cover their waste in the litter box. When he sees one of his sisters cough up a hairball, he’ll immediately run over to them and not leave until he sees that they are ok. Everyone who has met Tigger immediately takes a liking to him in terms of his lion-like appearance and calm demeanor. Besides serving as a guardian to Petunia and Kanga, Tigger’s hobbies include drinking filtered water (yes, he is picky!); eating all-natural cat food (with a side of tuna on the weekends); playing with a string, milk tops and his mother’s (Christine) scrunchies; snuggling for hours; head-butting the person kissing him; using his lion-sized paws and wrapping them around the person petting him; and silent-meowing. (PLEASE NOTE: It should be noted that this photo was taken by Scott Nolen/American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). James is an employee of the AVMA, and owns the copyright to this photo.)

Congratulations to Tigger, our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Meet Caroline: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Caroline - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest WinnerCaroline (born August 2011) arrived with her Sister on Christmas Day 2011. Dear friends had decided we had been a pet-less family for too long. So in comes the box, I joked “it’s a puppy” and out pops Caroline & her Sister Somerset! They have added joy to our lives and home in ways we could never imagine. This is Caroline in her favorite spot – looking out at the birds, leaves, walkers, dogs, squirrels, and anything else that moves. She is gorgeous, she knows it, and she loves to show off. Her other favorite things are sleeping late (in bed), jumping into laundry, running up the stairs after her sister and hitting the wall parallel to the floor with all four paws to then launch to the next set of stairs, practicing her high jump as she tries to catch anything that resembles a ribbon or string, and, mostly, waiting until the cooking has finished and she hears everyone sitting down to eat before she appears!

Congratulations to Caroline, our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!
