I would like to nominate my dog Remington a.k.a Crazy. She is a 4 lb Morkie (Maltese/yorkie). She is the most rambunctious yet completely adorable dog. She loves living out in the country and will run circles around the trees as fast as she can just because she’s happy to be outside

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!

Congratulations to this week’s KKBN Pet of The Week: Yoshi
Hi guys! This is our cat Yoshi and im entering her into the pet of the week. Im not sure if Yoshi knows that she’s a cat because she sometimes acts like a dog! Lol. She loves dog food and she begs for food. She has a very interesting personality. She loves to sit up in the window seals and imitate the birds outside. Yes, our cat makes bird noises! Hahaha. Some of her favorite pastimes are chasing our dog up and down the hallway, torturing our turtles by bopping them on their heads, making bird noises and lazily hanging out with us on the couch (picture included). She is such an awesome kitty and we love having her apart of our family. She is definitely not your average cat!
