I am an almost 3-year-old Lhasa Apso that my mom found online. You might say that I am mischievous because I often find myself in messes. I get into toilet paper, paper towels and garbage. Sometimes I dig through the laundry. My favorite things to play with are any toys that squeak and my favorite treat is chicken. I am so adored that I get to sleep in bed with mom!
I am a 4 year old Snowshoe Mix feline who was adopted from the Humane Society in Greenville, SC. My favorite toy to play with is my catnip mouse. Do you have one? They're the best! I hate to admit it but barking dogs on tv scare me and I hide under the bed when I hear them. I am well behaved but I did get mischievous and break the corner of the blinds to make a better view of outside. Don't tell Dr. Daniels and the other ladies but my favorite treats are those yummy Temptations. I am so spoiled that of course I sleep with my human mama!
My name is Dixie and I am a 6-year-old Doberman mix who was adopted by my mom. I'm as smart as I am cute. One time I shaped my leash into a question mark by the front door trying to get someone to walk me! My favorite thing to play with is lizards, they're always around temping me to chase them. My most embarrassing moment was the time I chewed open the Christmas presents. I didn't know it wasn't time to open them! Don't tell but my favorite treat is peanut butter, yum. Of course I am so spoiled that I sleep in bed with mom, but really where else would I sleep?
October 2019 Lacey Bryant
My name is Lacey and I am a 15-year-old DMH feline. I was a very special gift to my owner from his granddaughter. You should know that I am a busy lady. Dad would tell you that I love to unroll the toilet paper. It's my favorite thing to play with; that soft white roll is never-ending and just keeps going around and around when I bat my paw at it! Although I prefer to hang in the bathroom to keep myself entertained, I got mischievous one night and went exploring on a second story balcony. I lost my balance and fell off, it was so embarrassing! I was thankful to be ok. I am thankful for my owner who spoils me with Whisker's chicken treats and a cozy queen size bed to dream when I sleep.

Sometimes I spy on neighbors from my windowsill.
I am embarrassed to admit that I peed on my dad when I met my cousin, a big German Shepard. I was just too excited. When you meet me, I promise not to pee but I will give you the “wiggle worm” greeting. You can tell Dr. Daniels that I don’t eat junk food, just healthy treats for me. I am so spoiled that of course I sleep with my “paw-rents” but I also get my own Barkbox package; my parents even let me open it.

However, mom and dad do laugh at the way I sit, because I kind of sit like a human.

I am not saying I am spoiled, but I pretty much control where I get to sleep on the bed at night and even tricked them into slipping me a little ice cream every night (Psst...don't tell the doctor). Every now and then something would "accidentally" fall off the plate and just happen to land right in front of me!!! I am very honored to have been chosen as the pet of the month for November. My only regret is that I didn't know 4 days sooner because that's when I lost my daddy and I know he would have been very proud of me! I love you, Dad!
October 2015 "Joey" Russell
Hi, my name is “Joey”, and I am a 4 ½ year old Domestic Short Haired cat. My owners think I am special because I lovingly accepted a new sister, Maggie. Shhh…don’t tell Dr. Daniels that my favorite treat is Party Mix (all fish flavors). Something funny that happened to me was the time Maggie scared me when she went for my tail. Wow, did I jump! My owners love me so much that they let me sleep all snuggled up. I like to talk when I am told I am a “good boy”. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep on my momma.
September 2015 "Buddy" Boyd
Hi, my name is “Buddy”, and I am an 8 year old Beagle. My owners think I am special as I have a great people sense. I can tell when someone in my family doesn’t feel well and I try to comfort them. Shhh…don’t tell Dr. Daniels that my favorite treat is cheese. Something funny that happened to me was the time my parents had to rearrange the cabinets because I know how to open them and had eaten a whole bag of Doritos. After dinner one night my family came home to find all the cabinets in the kitchen open and all the Pyrex dishes and the blender in the living room. I can track squirrels and rabbits even after they are long gone with my ultra sensitive nose and will alert my family and neighbors with my awesome vocal range. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep on the couch.
August 2015"Pinky" Edwards
Hi, my name is “Pinky”, and I am a 6 year old Domestic short-haired Tortoiseshell cat. My owners think I am special because I am highly intelligent. I can brush my face by myself. Shhh…don’t tell Dr. Daniels but my favorite treat is Temptations. Something funny that happened to me was the time I got caught stealing gum and I threw myself on the evidence. My owners love me so much they let me have the whole couch. And they give me hugs and kisses all the time. A fun fact about me is that I steal gum out of my mom’s purse. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep wherever I want.
July 2015 “Toby” Summerson
Hi, my name is “Toby”, and I am a 9 ½ year old Bichon Frise. My mom thinks I am special as I am a sweetheart and I love my best friend, Bailey, who looks just like me. Shhh…don’t tell Dr. Daniels that my favorite treat is cold turkey. Something funny that happened to me was the time I found the ground coffee container and spilled it all over my mom’s room. I was hyper all night! My mom loves me so much she scratches my tummy whenever I fall asleep on my back. Did you know that I can jump as high as the kitchen counter? And my armpits are very ticklish. I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep in bed with my mom even though I crawl under the covers and get in the way.
June 2015 “Buddy” Dougherty
Hi, my name is “Buddy”, and I am a 9 month old domestic short-haired gray and white kitty. My mom says I am special because I am a lover. I love all strangers, love to cuddle, and am non-judgmental. Shhh…don’t tell Dr. Daniels but my favorite treats are pretzels, bacon, and bread. Something funny that happened to me was the time I thought the sliding glass door was open and I ran full force to go out onto the balcony, and I smacked my face right into the glass. My owners love me so much they wake up every morning at 5:00am, even on their days off, to feed me my wet Friskies food. I like to play fetch with my toy mouse just like a dog. My mom has video of it. I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep on my owner’s face and pillow.
