“I love my little furball! I have a blonde, spunky Yorkipoo
named Tink. She’s about six or seven years old now, but you couldn’t tell.
She’s a little ball of energy that loves to lick people! She brings joy to my
life every single day. (She woke up from a nap in this photo. Too
cute!)” —Amber Knight

“Lucy [is] 2 years [old]. She is in her favorite evening
spot, on my lap while I am watching TV. Her brother, Desi chooses to sleep in
the rocking chair. His loss.” — Carol Tarbay Sabetti

Debra Chatham via Facebook

“I love all my kitties but Dewey is a special
kind of nut. He thoroughly and frequently tests the limits of the good nature
and sense of humor of his housemates. He’s lucky we’re strong on those traits.” — Debra Chatham

cat in container

Renee Sineath via Facebook

“This is my senior furbaby, Olive. Here she is
just sitting in a flower pot full of dirt, getting ready for the sunset. She
greets me every time I come home and is always happy to see me and ready to
talk and tell [me] about her day. When I pet her, I can see the love in her eyes.
She is a funny girl and makes me smile all the time. I love her and our home
wouldn’t be complete without her.” — Renee Sineath

“This is the love of my life. She’s been by my
side for 14 years. I love her rambunctious attitude toward life in her old age.
Nothing slows her down! If there’s a soul mate in the world for me, it’s her.” — Brandee Vezer

dog in blue bandana

Chelsea Leahy via Facebook

“I have two cats who make our house a home, but
it is ridiculous how much I love this dog. He is my pet, my child and my best
friend all rolled into one. He loves romaine lettuce and pulls damp towels off
of my head to roll in. He is a wonderful little weirdo. It took me a long time
to convince my husband to get a dog, but now we want to clone him.” — Chelsea Leahy

little dog with stuffed toy

Kathy Ianniello Caruso via Facebook

“I love [my] little seven pound rescue. Natasha
always likes the biggest toy!” — Kathy Ianniello Caruso
