Pet of the Week - Bettie!

This is my fabulous kitty, Bettie. She's 5 years old and part Maine
Coon, part who knows. Her interests include going insane at about 2am
every night, stealing food from your plate, watching the toilet flush,
scamming us into giving her sausage (its her favorite), chilling in the
bathtub, and jumping up on tables she's not supposed to be on.

Thanks for sharing Bettie with us Emily! Be sure to check out Emily's awesome handmade rockabilly clothing at Dismantled Fashions!

Adoptable Dog of the Week - Bruno Bugatti!

Name: Bruno Bugatti
Age: 7 years
Breed: Basset

Bruno is big galoot who wants attention and belly rubs (what Basset doesn't!). He uses a doggie door to go outside, sits and waits for his treats, walks great on a leash and is a good car traveling companion. Bruno is the rare Basset that will actually fetch and return a ball! He's okay with other dogs, but not cats. He annoys cats endlessly, so he needs a feline-free home. If you are in the Las Vegas area and interested in Bruno Bugatti please put in the online application.

Pet of the Week - Atticus!

Atticus the Chiweenie 1-2 years old

He became a part of our family when my husband found him on the side of the road. He was very emaciated and covered in bugs. He is now as healthy as a horse. He's a little trouble maker, he gets into everything! We are very lucky to have him!

Pet of the Week - Othello!

Name: Othello
Breed: Tabby
Age: 1 year

Before my boyfriend and I were together, we were best friends. I knew he wanted a cat, so I convinced him he needed to get a kitten. I'm actually the one who went and picked out the kitten, and my only requirement was that he was a boy. When Jose came home from work we decided his name was Othello. I ended up spending a lot more time over at his place playing with and taking care of Othello, and we joke that he is the reason we're together now.

A few months later when we were together, we decided Othello needed a brother or sister. That's when we got Augustus. Othello wasn't too keen on him at first, but now they're best friends. Othello even saved his life, because back in March Augustus fell off the third floor balcony and broke his leg, and Othello started making a lot of weird noises until I came to see what was wrong. Now he's Cupid and a hero.

When he's not match-making or saving lives, Othello enjoys crawling into small boxes and bags, chewing up my art projects, and fighting for the top tier of the cat tower with his brother.

Thanks for sharing your sweet kitty with us Laura! Check out Laura's awesome handpainted tshirts on Etsy: Gynx Apparel!

Pet of the Week - Cinnamon/Canela

This is a special Pet of the Week because my dear friend Pili lost her sweet dog about a month ago when it got loose. If you're in Spain and you've seen this dog, let us know! She needs get back to her rightful owners.

Name: Cinnamon/Canela
Age: 2 years
Breed: Mini Pharaoh Hound

We got Cinnamon/Canela when she was about a month and a half old, from a friend of my dad, and she was so tiny! She was scared and missing her mum and siblings, but after playing around with her and holding her she started feeling at home. She's always been a very playful puppy, and very loving, won the hearts of everyone in the family, and was awfully spoilt by all of us.

If there's an Olympics games for dogs she would have got gold medal on free jumping, she could jump over everything! But as an odd thing, she's also the only dog that hasn't loved G (my bf) on sight, all dogs absolutely adore him, but she was all pissy
when she met him.

Since she disappeared we are all very heartbroken and miss her loads. I'm just very glad that I have the pillow that Jolene from DingoGirls Den made me
and the custom cartoon/portrait and labels and cards that Deb from On Cupcake Moon drew for me. I keep on hoping we'll get news from her one day, and as they say, hope springs eternal, right?

Thank you so much for sharing Cinnamon with us Pili, I know it was difficult. My heart is breaking for you and I hope she is returned to you soon.
