Meet Obi! Attached are pictures of a quite handsome (and extra large) German Shepherd. Obi will be 4 in December and weighs 135 lbs. He enjoys hiking in the Sierras, playing with kids, and knows a ton of tricks. He is truly a special (and very handsome) dog. We hope you enjoy the pictures.

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!

Please consider Ruger as your next pet of the week.

Hi Big Joe and Bridgette,
This is a picture of my Boarder Collie/Queensland Heeler, Rocky. He is the best dog we have ever had and is just the sweetest dog and companion. He is always so happy to see us, is a ball freak, and likes to be wherever we are. I love Rocky because he is a loyal, loving, fun and crazy dog, and that’s why he should be the Pet of the Week!

This is Duke! He’s full of love and energy.. when he’s not napping! He’s a rescue puppy that has filled our lives with a lot joy! He has NO concept of personal space, making it difficult to do anything with out a slobbery arm, face, or leg!! But who can say no this hunk of love!!? Also, he believes he’s human.. taking his naps on “his” couch and “his” bed! We love this pup a little to much!! He’s king for a day, everyday in his castle! Now he’s hoping he can be KKBN’s Pet of the Week!!

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!

Congratulations to this week’s KKBN Pet of The Week: Baby
This is Baby Phat Snorts-a-Lot (a.k.a. Baby). She is my 8 year old Pug. Baby has been with me for 3 years. I rescued her from an abusive home and she has brightened my life everyday since! Our bond is so strong that people are amazed that I haven’t had her since birth. Saving her was the most amazing thing I have ever done and I thank God for her everyday! Michele Tokazowski

I would like to nominate “Wiggy” for pet of the week award, on behalf of his family the Campbells from Sonora.
Wiggy is a 3 year old Swedish Valhund who went missing out of his yard in May of this year up in Ponderosa Hills. About a week later with no clues to his wereabouts someone saw him on a adoption site on the internet, the organization was notified however “Wiggy” was adopted already by a new family.
The organization said they would notify the family and explain the situation and see if they would return “Wiggy” to his family who misses him dearly. However his family has never heard back from the organization, and all of their calls go unanswered.
PLEASE PLEASE make him the PET OF THE WEEK, we are trying to get “Wiggy’s” story out so he will be returned and alot of people in and around Oakdale where he ended up and was adopted might hear that he is the PET OF THE WEEK and go to your website and read the story….
He has quite a following on Facebook on “gold country chitter chatter” and alot of people are willing to stand behind his family for his return.
Im hoping if you do make him the pet of the week someone may hear who knows who adopted him and can help to “Bring Wiggy Home”. If it were your dogs, I know you would do all you can to get them back…
Thank you so much,

This is Iris and Capone. We think this photo really showcases Capone’s tail. Capone and Iris get a lot of attention, because people are not accustomed to seeing Rottweilers with tails. We hope you enjoy our photo. Thank you for your consideration. – The Thompson Family

I’d like to nominate my pile of cats for Pet of the Week! I adopted my two big boys, Rowdy and Pancakes, three years ago. They look like little mountain lions and weigh in at 14 pounds each. We adopted our new little rescue a month ago. Hemingway is polydactyl and has extra toes on all four paws! Needless to say they’ve happily welcomed him into our home! Their human lady is Sara W in Sugar Pine.
