I took Rudy, my Saint Bernard, to be boarded at my vet's. He likes going to the vet, but he doesn't like it when I leave him. When he realized I wasn't coming with him, he turned around and jumped on the swinging door as if to say, "Don't leave me mom." There's a story behind Rudy. My husband passed away 3 years ago. Before he died, we had put a deposit and had the pick of the litter on a litter of Saint Bernard puppies to be born in late January of 2017 in Alabama. My husband named him Rudy (after the football movie). In early January my husband got sepsis and was hospitalized and passed away on January 29, 2017. I questioned if I should get a puppy without my husband to help since I was still working full time. A couple of weeks after Joe passed, the breeder had a video of the puppies on Facebook and said, "The puppies will be 2 weeks old tomorrow." It was then that I realized the puppies were born the same day my husband died. I figured it was a sign that I needed to get the puppy, so my sister-in-law and I drove to Alabama to pick up "Rudy."

I had just had to put my 19 1/2 year old cat, Whiskers, to sleep and went to Pet Smart looking for a 2 to 5 year old declawed spayed female cat. I looked at a couple they were okay but wasn't sure. This 9 month old kitten kept meowing and meowing, and I didn't even want to look at him. Well....I finally gave him, they opened the kennel he ran right to me head butting me, and chewing on my shoe laces. I ended up picking him, he captured my heart. I picked a male, undeclawed kitten but was neutered and haven't regretted it. Everyone that meets him loves him and says how nice he is. I love him so much.

My family got Sky and Brutus as little kittens, now 3 years old, their personalities shine bright. Sly has always been shy and timid but once she had kittens, she gained confidence, became a huge talker, and craves everyone’s attention. Brutus has always been an over-protective big brother, he’s addicted to chocolate, he’s a very curious boy who likes to mess with my geckos, and if you leave the door open for too long, he’ll slip out without you even realizing it. He’s also quite bipolar, he’ll cuddle up next to you and love your pets but a second later, he’ll be munching on your hand.
