My dog loves to rest his head on my leg when he is tired. Even though he is a retriever, he does not retrieve the ball. He grabs the ball when I throw it, and then brings it ten feet from me. Then when I run to grab it, he picks the ball up quickly and runs away! Yoohoo also loves the game “chase.” His favorite spot to be pet is on the back of his head and on the sides of his body. At 11 years old, he is never sad and is always smiling. Sometimes he eats food off the counter, which gets pretty annoying, but we love him all the same. Submitted by Jack S.
Our shelter just had three new adorable Spaniel, Terrier Mix arrivals. For the time being we’re calling them Chipmunk (pictured above), Squirrel, and Skunk (don’t worry, he smells like a normal puppy). These sweethearts will grow to be about 30 pounds, and we suspect that they won’t be here at the shelter very long. Submitted by the Humane Society of Morgan County Georgia.
Here is Skunk…
And here is Squirrel…
How adorable is little Ember? She is about eight weeks old. We are not totally sure on the mix, but she is definitely some sort of herding breed. Maybe Border Collie, Terrier Mix? She is smart as a whip and confident around other dogs. Her future family doesn’t know how lucky it is yet. Submitted Petaluma Pet Pals.
I am sending you four photos of my dog, Nella. Three of them are when she was just a small pup (around January of 2017) and the one above is from last summer. She is a Finnish Spitz and German Shepherd Mix and will be one year old next month. She is so cute when I’m doing some work on my computer and she comes to poke my arm with her wet nose, and after that she literally uses her paw to pull my arm because she obviously wants some scratching. Or when I’m sitting on the couch with her while watching TV, she will start pushing my arm away with her paw if it’s too close to her. Many times while playing with her, she just sticks her butt up and head and chest down and starts “kicking” her hind paws. I don’t know if this description sounds funny or cute but it most certainly looks so! And her ears are slightly bigger but that only makes her even more adorable. Submitted by Jan from Finland.
This is our Australian Shepherd, little Bindii at three months old. This picture is her first river trip and she was very excited! Bindii is an Australian Aboriginal name meaning “little spear.” She loves the river and playing outdoors with her Black Lab big brother, Beaudreaux. As long as she is by me or her dad she is a happy little thing. Submitted by Melissa C.
