Pet of the Week: Dougie

Dougie Jones Morgan-Adams (AKA Mr. Jackpots), aptly named after the Twin Peaks: The Return character, is a recent addition to our home. Over Mother’s Day weekend, I made the delightful mistake of just “looking around” at the Humane Society in my hometown and found Dougie. A charmer from the start, I took him home to […]

Pet of the Week: Petra

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 […]

Just a few weeks earlier, I had said goodbye to my longtime corgi companion, Melvin. Mendell was clearly a senior dog […]

Simon and I have a dog named Oliver, who we think is a corgi/chihuahua mix. He is around 11 years old and weighs 18 pounds. I adopted Oliver from an animal shelter in my hometown in North Carolina in July of 2011 when he was 4 years old. Oliver and I became bonded quickly, and he has […]

Pet of the Week: Fiona

I adopted Fiona from the Fulton County animal shelter in 2010, when she was just a little baby. I chose her because when I walked past her cage, Fiona was climbing on her cage mate and biting his ears. I figured a feisty cat is the best kind of cat. Even though she was tri-colored, […]
