Hi my name is Skippy and I am a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever adopted from animal services. I love to play with my squeaky toys, doesn't everyone? Can you keep a secret? I love to lick ice cream bowls, they are so sweet and cool. Yum! I am a good pup but sometimes I can be mischievous and get in to the trash. I am so loved that of course I get to sleep in bed with my human dad.
Hi my name is Solomon and I am an 18-year-old DSH kitty. My family adopted me from the SPCA. I love to play with anything catnip! Toy mice and brushes are also entertaining too. I have a history of stealing food off of the table. One time when no one was paying attention, I jumped up on the dining table looking for a treat and I saw the bowl of queso. Anything in my way to the queso was pushed off the table so I could eat the entire bowl of queso!
My most embarrassing moments are actually for my mom. When we visit Largo Vet I prefer to sunbathe in Dr. Daniels window instead of allowing her to examine me. My favorite treats are freeze dried chicken treats, Temptations and any human food I can scavenge. Naturally a charming cat like myself gets to sleep in bed on the legs of my favorite humans.
Hi, my name is Isla and I am a 2-year-old Westie who was adopted from family. I love my chew toys but I also find furniture appealing to chew on. When I was a puppy, furniture legs were my go-to and they felt so good on my new teeth. I am embarrassed to say that when I was a potty training puppy I had accidents on the carpet. Now, I spend time doing my business outside and I love to chase squirrels. I'm gonna catch one someday! I am so loved and spoiled that I get to sleep anywhere in the house I want.
My name is Remington and I am a 6-year-old Chocolate Persian feline. My favorite thing to play with is my catnip squeaky bird. I love holiday’s so much that I taught myself to open presents. In fact, my most mischievous moment was when I got caught opening Christmas presents. My most embarrassing moment happened when I acted like a wild animal while visiting Largo Veterinary Hospital. Most favorite treat is not a snack but I think it is a real special treat to have my chin scratched! I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep in bed with mom and dad.
My name is CheyAnne LaRose and I recently celebrated my 14th birthday. I am super happy to be the pet of the month! I have a unique adoption story. When I was 16 months old my mom took my big brother, Bentley, to the groomer. When mom came to pick up Bentley, Ms. Debbie, our groomer, told her that my owners had bought me off the internet 8 months before. They did not realize I had been seriously abused. I had been hiding in their closet for 8 months and they did not know what to do for me. So... between big brother and Ms. Debbie, Mom was convinced to give me a home. Boy, was Dad surprised when he got home and saw there were now 2 dogs in the family! I’ve been with them ever since, almost 13 years!
My favorite toy is a stuffed Santa and I like to go to the golf course with my BFF (best furry friend) Pacheco to feed the ducks. My most mischievous moment and embarrassing moment are when I tried to steal a Santa toy from a neighbor’s windowsill! The nice lady, tried to give it to me but mom said no because I have one just like it.
Don’t tell Dr. Daniels but my favorite treats are cheese and my doggie ice cream mom makes for me with yogurt. And even though I lost my hearing a year ago I still sense when it is storming out and I hate loud storms so I get a few pieces of turkey to help calm me down. I am so over spoiled that I can sleep anywhere I want but at 14 and with my bad hips I stay on my very large comfy dog bed that has egg crate foam for comfort and a cooling gel insert. I actually have 2 one on the patio and one in the bedroom.
Hi, I am Sami Goldstein and I am a 19-year-old Tonkinese. My owner rescued me from a cat show. I was a sick little kitten who wasn't even for sale but my owner refused to leave without me. I am embarrassed to say that I pooped on my new owner in the car on the way home. I am mischievous sometimes when I playfully punch my sister cat. I love to play with anything you will throw for me, especially little balls. I live up to my Tonkinese breed, by talking...a lot!! Don't tell Dr. Daniels but I love to eat tuna and holiday turkey for treats. I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep on my mom.
Hi, my name is Sasha and I am a 12-year-old Shih Tzu who is proud to be the Pet of the Month! My favorite toys to play with are plastic balls that have bells inside and stuffed animals. One time my dad made a delicious sandwich and walked away from it for just a minute. I seized the opportunity, jumped up on a chair and stole the sandwich! When I'm not stealing sandwiches I do love my dog bone treats. I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep on dad's pillow at night and he gets only a small corner. But one time I was sleeping on the couch and I rolled right off in my sleep.
My name is Zeppelin and I am a two-year-old Bengal cat. I am a very active feline and a little mischievous. My hobbies include jumping off high areas, helping daddy feed the snakes and playing hide and go seek with my mommy. My favorite toys are springs and my Ewok stuffed animal that I love to carry around. I am not the most cuddly cat but I do show my love and trust by giving head butts. I do expect my humans to show me love by scratching my chin daily. Shhh...don't tell Dr. Daniels but one of my favorite treats is raw meat!
My name is Moose and I am 2-year-old Doberman. My family adopted me through a rescue and I love them so much! My humans would say that I am very good boy who can be goofy. For example, I pee on myself sometimes because I don’t lift my leg. I sleep all over the house sometimes even on my humans. You should know that I love to eat. You might even say that my favorite treats are anything I get in my mouth. One time I successfully ate the lasagna off of the stovetop. That day lasagna was my favorite "treat"...it just smelled so good! I love to be with my family so much that I learned to open the garage door to hang with Dad. As you can see I also love to pose for pictures.
My name is Athena and I am a young Manx feline who was adopted from the St. Francis Society Animal Rescue. My favorite toys are a scrunchie and a laser pointer. Mom describes me as “a dog stuck in a cat’s body”. I love belly rubs and will eat just about anything, so don’t leave your plate unattended! When I’m not knocking things over around the house, I love to play fetch. I am embarrassed to admit that pretty often I fall off of the thing I climb. When I’ve finally worn myself out, I love to cuddle and lick your face. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep on my owner’s neck.
My name is Teddy and I am just a young Bichpoo pup. Watch out, I am toe nibbler, I may grow out of this mischievous hobby but for now it is fun! My other favorite thing to play with is my stuffed toy named "Doggo". My most embarrassing moment so far was the time I got stuck under the bed. I am so spoiled that I sleep ON mom's head.
My mom and I were instantly connected and our bond grows stronger each day. She says, "I don’t know what I did in my past life to allow me to win the Florida Paw-r-ball with Teddy. He is the sweetest, friendliest, gentlest, most lovable little cuddle bug. He’s truly brought so much joy to everyone he’s met. I cannot be happier to have him as my fur baby!"
Hi my name is Chester and I am a 7-year-old domestic short hair feline. My favorite things to play with are scrunchies, they're just so easy to bat around. I also love to play hide-and-go-seek; I bet you can't find me! I am a busy boy, when I'm not playing with scrunchies and hide-and-go-seek I love to jump from one place to another. Unfortunately I don't always make my jumps and then I fall, it's pretty embarrassing. Don't tell Dr. Daniels but I LOVE treats, all kinds. When I've worn myself out enough you can find me sleeping on mom's chest.
Hi, my name is Bear and my nick name is Bear-Bear. I am an 8-year-old American Eskimo/Golden Doodle. Ever since my owner adopted me I live a pretty spoiled and happy life. I have my own bed, but often sleep in the human’s bed with my family (often snuggle closely with my brother cats). I have a large family with 3 cats and another dog. I spend most of my free time lounging around in different places around the house. Although I sometimes enjoy digging in the yard. My favorite treat is steak but I’d love for you to share any of your food with me really. I get a little piece of steak to celebrate special occasions. My favorite thing to do is go for a ride in the car. We often drive down to the bay to look at the water. I love it when the air conditioning is turned up full blast and blowing on me. At least once a day, I get to go for a walk. I’m working on picking up my pace to a slow jog and maybe one day I can catch those squirrels I see when I’m out and about.
My name is Dottie and I am a 15-year-old lady who was rescued from a local shelter. My favorite things to play with are actually my sisters. Did I mention they are dogs? I love to smack them with my paws! My parents say I am mischievous because I also like to eat the dog food and then they think the dogs ate it. My embarrassing moment was not trusting the team at the hospital and I gave the nurse a very hard time. I'm a sweet lady, I promise. Of course, I am so spoiled and loved that I get to sleep in bed with mommy.
Hi, I am a 1-year-old Pembroke Corgi who loves to give kisses. My favorite thing to play with is a tennis ball but I love when my bark box arrives with new toys! I am mischievous when I climb on the top of the couch and attack my favorite faces with kisses. Don't be surprised if I rest my head on your shoulder for extra snuggles. One time when I was home alone, no one put me in my kennel and I got all excited and tore up my new bed and shredded it all over the living room. I really thought all the pieces spread out looked nice. You should know that I love all treats. There has never been a treat that I'm not excited about. I am so spoiled that I even get to sleep between my moms in bed.
Hi, my name is Widget and I am a 12-year-old long haired feline, aren't I magnificent? I happily live with my human mom and dad who adopted me from a friend of theirs. My favorite thing to play with are my catnip bags and I love to play string and sleep in box lids. I am very skilled in conning mom and dad into giving me more treats when they don't know the other has already spoiled me. Even though I have my very own room I love to sleep in the window or on mom's side of the bed, like her entire side of the bed! My humans say I snore loudly but I think that's nonsense. I will admit that when I am not sleeping I have plenty to say and chat often. I am embarrassed to admit that I sometimes poop out of the litter box. I am so spoiled that I snuggle mom overnight for brushing. Life is good!
Hi, my name is Lucy and I am a 7-year-old Pug. Mom found an ad for me in the paper that led her straight to me! My favorite things to play with are stuffed animals. One time, my family ordered a pizza and when they weren't paying attention I climbed up on the table and ate a slice! I can't behave when I smell pizza, can you? My most embarrassing moment so far in life was sneezing in a stranger's face while she was saying hello and petting me. That is not so bad right, I mean I am a Pug?! It is ok for Dr. Daniels to know that my favorite treats are greenies chews. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep on my very own extra large round dog bed in the living room.
Hi my name is Gabby and I am an 8-year-old domestic shorthaired kitty who was adopted from foster care. I love to play with my mouse toys and lizards.

Hi, my name is Beemer and I am a 1-year-old mini Schnauzer. I am so spoiled that I sleep on the couch, or the lounge chair, well actually anywhere I please. I love to play hide and seek and my favorite thing to play with is my lamb chop stuffed toy. Mom says I mischievous because I really embarrassed her the time I escaped from the house early one morning. I ran up and down and up and down the street and Mom had to chase me in her housecoat. Boy was that funny! Shhh...don't tell Dr. Daniels that my favorite snacks are my training treats.
My name is Sailor and I am an orange tabby cat. I am not even 1 year old yet! My mom adopted me and I am so thankful. My most favorite things to play with are my squeaky mouse and mom's feet.

My name is Oregano and I am a 1-year-old Mackerel Tabby Cat who was adopted from an Orlando shelter by my mom Marianna. I am a busy young cat who loves to eat! Not only did I once pull over my 7lb bag of cat food I also got myself closed in the pantry. While I was in there I knocked over a bottle of olive oil and then tracked it all over the house. Mom says I smelled like olive oil for a week. When I’m not being mischievous, my favorite toy to play with is a fluffy pom-pom fishing pole. Please don’t try and put a collar on me, I become hysterical…it’s very embarrassing. Also, please don’t tell Dr. Daniel’s but my favorite treat is anything you want to share with me! My two favorite places to cozy up and go to sleep are under mom's comforter and the bathroom sink.
Hi, my name is Padimae and I am an 11-year-old Pomeranian. I am a very special little lady who brings happiness to anyone in my presence. I love to play and do things you wouldn't expect. Playing in the kiddie pool is my favorite activity. I jump in-and-out and in-and-out chasing my ball fearlessly dunking my head under to retrieve the ball from the pool. My parents love me so much that they bought me my own car seat to ride safely in the car. I get to travel to so many different places. Don't tell my dad but I think I have more outfits than he does! My other secret is that my favorite food is meatballs. I am so spoiled that my parents let me sleep anywhere I want!
February 2020 Fluffy Kraus
I am a 10-year-old long haired Himalayan Siamese feline who was adopted from a private owner. My favorite thing to play with is scotch tape, it's just so sticky and fun. I love attention but when I've had enough I'll nip you a bit to let you know. So far, the only thing that embarrasses me is when I try to pounce my sister Maggie and she throws me backwards, one day I'll catch her off guard! My favorite treats are Nips but I don't like them all the time. I am so spoiled that I get to sleep on the bed at my mom's feet.

I am a 4 year old Snowshoe Mix feline who was adopted from the Humane Society in Greenville, SC. My favorite toy to play with is my catnip mouse. Do you have one? They're the best! I hate to admit it but barking dogs on tv scare me and I hide under the bed when I hear them.

Don't tell Dr. Daniels and the other ladies but my favorite treats are those yummy Temptations. I am so spoiled that of course I sleep with my human mama!

October 2019 Lacey Bryant
My name is Lacey and I am a 15-year-old DMH feline. I was a very special gift to my owner from his granddaughter. You should know that I am a busy lady. Dad would tell you that I love to unroll the toilet paper. It's my favorite thing to play with; that soft white roll is never-ending and just keeps going around and around when I bat my paw at it! Although I prefer to hang in the bathroom to keep myself entertained, I got mischievous one night and went exploring on a second story balcony. I lost my balance and fell off, it was so embarrassing! I was thankful to be ok. I am thankful for my owner who spoils me with Whisker's chicken treats and a cozy queen size bed to dream when I sleep.
