Hello Big Joe and Bridgette!
My name is Gizmo I am a mix of dachshund & chihuahua and this is my friend Maddy the beagle. We came together about 10 months ago and are now play buddies. Maddy is about 7 1/2 years old and I will turn one on June 16th. Our owners say that since I came into the house I turned Maddy from being an unsociable and lazy dog to a dog who actually plays now. It would be an honor for the two of us to be co-kkbn pets of the week.

This is my Munchkin cat, Mumu. He’s a special cat because he has short legs and doesn’t know he’s short. I joke on facebook about Mumu running for Mayor of Merced, first order of business, cuddling and cat nip. I hope you consider my cat Mumu, he’s very special. He saved my life from a asthma attack.

Hello Big Joe and Bridgette!
This is Stella and she is a 3 year old Chocolate Lab/Chessapeake Bay Retriever that we rescued outside of Walmart. She was 11 weeks old and not well taken care of. Her family had been feeding her and her siblings hotdogs, and they were all infested with mange. We brought her into our home, got her healthy and she quickly became the love of our lives. Stella loves the water, she’ll play fetch until she can’t walk anymore, and she can definitely lick you to death! She is our baby and we are so great full for such a wonderful dog that was brought into our lives by chance! She’s a wonderful guard dog for our home, as well as best friend to us. Please choose her for pet of the week!

Hi! I’m Mose. Lots of people mispronounce my name as Moose or Moses, but it is like ‘hose’ with an ‘M’ instead of the ‘h’. I am a five year old cairn terrier who loves walks, naps, and bringing in the Union Democrat everyday for a yummy bacon flavored treat. My mom dresses me up every year for Halloween and this was one of my favorite costumes. We call it “Dog Lobster” (thanks B52s). I think I make a great candidate for the Pet of the Week as the first and only half dog half lobster. Thank you. Mose and Maggie Duncan

This is Jasper, my 3yr old sons kitty! Jasper is a 1.5yr old walmart cat! I was concerned after bringing him home & ALMOST re-homed him, but chose not to (thank god)! He turned out to be the most amazing cat & loves my son unconditionally. He listens to my son read to him, watches us do arts & crafts, sleeps on my sons pillow everynight & is loved by all of my neighbors too. He recently went missing for 2 very long weeks & just when I was about to give up on finding him… he showed up at the back door! I knew instantly that it was time to nominate him for pet of the week! Thank you! ♥ Jonah & Jennifer Keyes

Our family would like to nominate our Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund mix) for pet of the week.
His name is Snickerdoodle! Our daughter named him after her favorite cookie! We call him Snickers
for short. Mom never liked Chihuahua’s because when she was growing up there were Chihuahua’s
on her street that would get out from under the fence and chase her and her friends, trying to nip at
their ankles while they were riding their bicycles! But, Dad brought this little guy home for us when
he was just a pup! He has grown on Mom and now she loves him! He likes to try to nuzzle or burrow
underneath your hair or neck. He is so cute and funny! Please consider him!

Roy is a 2 yr. old Mastiff mix my boyfriend & I adopted a year & a half ago from the Humane Society. He is the most loving & affectionate companion that anyone could ever ask for. He may be 100 pounds, but he thinks he’s a lap dog! He has the biggest heart of any dog I have ever seen. Gaia (pronounced guy-uh) is a 5 & 1/2 yr. old wolf & Siberian Husky mix. She has been my ‘only child’ since she was 8 weeks old. She sometimes acts like a teenager and vocalizes her feelings constantly by howling and talking to us. She wasn’t sure what to think of Roy when he came into our family, and she may act like he is an annoying little brother, but they have been caught cuddling together often. They live for their daily bicycle rides with Jason, which is where this picture was taken last August. I had just started dental hygiene school at Fresno City College & was missing my boyfriend & our furry children, so he sent me this picture. They are the center of our lives and give us a reason to smile every day.

Dear Big Joe & Bridgette,
I would like to nominate our horse, Sheza Hot Nix “Nixie” as the Pet of the Week. Nixie is an 17 year old Quarter Horse. Nixie is our 10 year old daughters best friend. Nixie takes care of our little girl when riding or just playing together in the pasture. She is such a sweet girl and a part of our family. She works very well with our daughter McKenna, whether it’s riding at home for fun, or in the show ring for 4-H. Nixie would love to be KKBN’s pet of the week.

Hi my name is Daisy. I am a 7 month old Holstein calf, well almost 7 months- I will be 7 months on April 17, 2014. And I am the most spoiled diva anyone has ever met.
I was not always a diva. I was sold at a big scary auction when I was just 1 day old! But some nice people bought me, cared for me, sold me to the wonderful mommy and daddy that I have today, and now I am the most beautiful, prettiest calf in all of the land. And I will hopefully grow up to live a long happy life, just how a cow should: in green pastures.
Some of my favorite things are:
· eating grass
· chasing my dog friends around my pasture
· playing my goat friends
· drinking from the hose
· eating my mommy’s pant when she is brushing me
· stinking up the barn
· pulling laundry off the line
· And running scared from my mommy’s kitty cat. Even though I am 464 pounds I just know that 6 pound cat is going to get me!
I hope you pick me as pet of the week this week, or next week, or any week just so the whole world will know how spoiled this cowgirl deserves to be!
Daisy, a.k.a. Cowgirl

Hello Big Joe and Bridgette Me and my Husband have recently moved back to the area and love your show and we listen to your station all day and everyday!! We always have!
I love the contest pet of the week and finally found time to sit down and show you some pictures of our children Ted and Lola. Both of them are pure bread shi zsu one is overweight and the other is just such a runt!
Ted is 2 years old and is the coolest little dude with his own personality he can be so loving, playful, and a trouble maker but he is the coolest little individual we have ever had! Ted gets into so much trouble just by getting into everything possible! Ted loves to play with toys of all kinds and he has a talent! Ted is only 8 pds, just a little guy but he likes to be in your arms so he will jump straight up to you about 5 feet of springs he has in those legs! It is so cool to see. Ted likes to take pictures and has a unique smile upper left lip up with one big fang its so cute !! One last thing about Ted everyone that meets him wants to take him home.
And our Lola La Lu Lovera is the sweetest most loving, caring and over weight doggie! Lola is 7 years old and has been a part of our lives since she was 6 weeks old. Lola loves to sing, she loves her toy toys and is always waiting at the window for us to come home. Lola loves the grandchildren so much that she is by their sides at all times (even in all the pictures we take). When Lola see’s the grandchildren or hears their voice she starts singing away and gets so excited! Lola does have one problem she is a nervous nelly at times but once she is familiar with you or surrounding she is just so loving and everyone’s best friend!
I think Ted and Lola qualify for pet of the week and all the viewers will love their pictures and personality’s. Ted would love to be a super star!!! Lola will most likely have a panic attack!
Thank you ,
Brenda and Mike Kelley

She snores even when she is awake and snorts just trying to walk around. She is very spunky and loves to play with our kids and our other dog. We named her Buttercup and she is such a cute fatty with tons of rolls! She is so adorable how can you not think she deserves pet of the week?

Hey Big Joe and Bridgette! I listen to your show every morning on my drive to work from Oakdale to Tracy! My dog, Bug, means the world to me and we would both appreciate the chance for Bug to be the KKBN’s Pet of the Week!
Here’s a little background of our relationship: We found Bug running around the streets, abandoned, almost 3 years ago. He came right to me when we called him. We named him Bug because of his big, expressive eyes and he was “cute as a bug”. He has been the best pup anyone could ask for! This weekend he recently had a seizure and we can’t imagine if anything was to ever happen to him! We love our Bug!

Dear Big Joe and Bridget,
I would like to enter two of my cat family in your pet of the week contest. Joel and Henri (On-Ree) are litter mates about three years old. They were left at a friend’s house at about 8 weeks old in a carrier with food and water and milk, but no litter box. I heard Henri meowing, and went to see them, found them very wet, but really healthy, and brought them home.. They were a wonderful addition to the family! Henri loves to play fetch with various toys.

I would like to nominate my dog and cat Khloe and Gabe. Khloe was a single animal in our home for about a year and a half. She always hated cats and chased any that came into our yard. Well when our 3 year old son completed his potty training we had to fulfill our promise to him, which was getting him a cat. We weren’t sure how Khloe would handle it but she has taken to our lil Gabe like a mother hen. They sleep together, eat together, play together and most of all LOVE each other. Khloe still chases cats but not her cat Gabe. We got Gabe when he was 4 weeks old and now he is 5 months old. They are the sweetest thing together and I think they deserve the Pet of the week award!!

In honor of my beloved “Outi”…the best dog that ever lived. I met Outi when he was 6 months old n was blessed to take ownership 3 months later. It was love at first sight…such an honorable dog…to the end.
Due to cancer at the age of 12, I had to send him to Rainbow bridge 2 years ago…hardest thing I have ever done! His hairy collar still hangs from my rear view mirror n comes in handy if I am feeling sad. It’s true…gone from earth but not from my heart.

Hi Big Tom and Bridget,
My mom rescued me from the chicken coop when out feeding the chickens one morning, I was running away because I was afraid, but she caught me and brought me in a held me until I settled down, I remember her calling my new dad and she told him to bring home a can of goat milk, I guess she knew that I would like that.
So she would get up all through the night and during her busy day on the farm she fed me from an eye dropper, I didn’t know what it was I just know that is what I heard her telling their friends (my new friends now to.
My name is “Coop” Cooper, Scoop, Pooper Scoop, I have a lot of names, but COOP is my real name.
I think I should be Pet of The Week because all my mom and dads friends and family said I wouldn’t live because I was to young to know how to swallow and that I would drown, but see I made it and my mom did a good job. As you see, I now am big and healthy and every morning, I come running down the hall when I hear my dad filling my feed bowl with my VERY favorite breakfast, CHEERIO’S, honeynut cheerios are good to. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and I live in the house with the rest of the family. I have 2 dogs, and 3 cats for brothers and sisters and am so so happy.
Thank you Big Tom and Bridget, we have a good time listening to your show in the morning.

Have a Very “Hoppy” day

I would like to nominate my dog Siddalee for the Pet of the Week award! She is a three year old Shweenie (half Dachshund and half Shih Tzu) and I love her to death! Since this Tuesday is National Dress Up Your Pet Day, here she is modeling one of the two tutus that I made for a baby shower. Since there weren’t babies around to test the fit, I chose her. Clearly, pink is her color.

He was born with spina bifda, a heart murmur, cherry eye and one testicle. He has overcame all of these issue’s and brings me so much joy. If I would let him, he would sit on my lap 24/7. He is very playful and extremely active. He has to be in the middle of everything as you can see from this picture.

Hana the Flower Child with her Hippie Bro Buster
I would like to nominate my two dogs, Buster (14 yr old mixed breed) and Hana (9 1/2 yr old boxer) for pets of the week. Both are rescued dogs from an animal shelter and after training and testing are both certified therapy dogs. You can find them listening to the children read to them at Sonora Elementary School or the Sonora Library, and visiting with the elderly in an assisted living center. Recently Buster and Hana were found visiting the fire crews up at the Tuolumne Fire Encampment each night to bring some stress relief to the fire crews and staff. Buster earned the name “Grandpa Dog” as he was the oldest dog up there visiting. They love to watch for squirrels, eat and sleep when not doing their therapy dog visits. The picture is them in their Halloween costume one year
Thank you so much for considering them for this week’s pets of the week. They are two of the loves of my life!
