"What funny things does your pet do?"
"We adopted Stella on a Tuesday evening, from a woman who used to breed shih tzus and had recently fallen ill to the point where she would have sudden, unexpected fainting. Stella was the sweetest dog we had ever met-she greeted us with a wagging tail, wanting to be pet. She immediately warmed up to us. We talked with the woman and got to know her and Stella better. We even asked if we could bring her existing crate home as an additional comfort for her. Her dog mommy loved her tremendously and we knew how sad she was to say goodbye, but relieved knowing the dog would be well loved and well cared for in our home. Stella is a sweetheart-she follows me around the house. My boyfriend is an engineer and works long hours, plus occasional international travel and Stella is a wonderful little buddy. She came to us already potty and crate trained, having had 8 litters of Shih tzu purebred pups in her 7 years and 2 months of life. She is an extrordinary dog and an important member of our newly bonded 3 creature family, of my boyfriend, myself, and little Stella, as we purchased our home in June 2019. Together, we will live and grow and create a routine. For all of you out there who do not know-you do not need to get a dog from a shelter to rescue an animal-you just need to provide a pet who really needs a new home with a loving environment. We consider ourselves rescuers and we plan to spoil little Stella knowing that she endured years of multiple pregnancies and breeding." - Posted by Katie Severance
"My cat likes to stand over us in the morning as a sign that we need to get up and love on her." - Posted by Makayla
"I like to chase my tail around and around... I WON'T STOP! I also howl when mom takes the toy and doesn't throw it." - Posted by Baby Bee (the pup)
"My dog likes to play ball while I'm trying to cut the grass. He always drops the ball in the path I'm trying to cut. I have to stop the lawn mower and throw the ball so he goes to fetch it. But he always returns and drops the ball in front of the mower again, and the process repeats!" - Posted by Ian
"My cat is completely anti-social. She stays in rooms where nobody bothers her. That's not funny, but there it is." - Posted by Jim
"Like clockwork every night around 8pm, my dog goes and finds a treat somewhere in the house and begins playing soccer with it. He kicks it with his front paws, and loves seeing it fly across the room. He runs over to where it landed, then flicks it to another part of the room. It’s hilarious to see how entertained he is playing soccer by himself. Sometimes I swear he stops to make sure we are watching him, I guess he likes an audience." - Posted by Teresann
