Pet of the Week: Boogie

Meet our cat, Boogie. He loves to cuddle and play fetch with his toy fish. I adopted Boogie from Briarcliff Animal Hospital when he was a few months old. His previous name was Bagheera, but I thought he was a little too goofy and gentle to be named after a panther, so I shortened it […]

Pet of the Week: Dixie

Ten years ago, I walked into the Lawrence, Kansas SPCA shelter, looking for a buddy to keep me company during grad school. I asked my volunteer guide to bring out a manx I’d seen on their website. She nodded, went to a back room, and returned to deposit a cat in my arms that was […]

Pets of the Week: Tip and Jet!

We have two rescue Border Collie brothers named Tip and Jet. Both were rescued when their mother was scheduled to be put down and it was determined she was pregnant. I drove down to pick them up in Screven County, Georgia, and had bought the smallest collars I could find. Jet was so small (the […]
