October Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
This month we are highlighting three dog siblings because we just couldn’t leave one out! They are Tria, India, and Speckle, all girls, less than five months old, and all are tri-colored, mixed-breed puppies. Each of them has a somewhat different personality, but all are energetic, curious, great with adults and kids, and very pretty! They will be medium-large and make terrific companions. Speckle is the quietest one, Tria is the happy-go-lucky one, and India is the “old soul” of the sisters. Based on personality types, if they were humans, we’d guess that India is the oldest sister, Speckle the middle child, and Tria the “baby” of the family, but, of course, they are exactly the same age. Since they came to the SPA when they were only six days old, it’s been a joy to watch them grow!
Our October cats, Archie and Carlotta, are always on the lookout for petting in an available lap. Archie, a six-month-old black and white male, arrived at the SPA in a most unusual way, crammed into a rusty birdcage with his five littermates. Released from the cage, he settled in right away, happy that he and his siblings had some space to explore, yet were able to snuggle together in a basket to recapture that old cozy feeling. Archie has a glossy coat and lovely eyes, and he is one of our most playful and affectionate kittens. Carlotta came to us as a mom with five very young kittens. She was in a volunteer foster home until her kittens were weaned and now is ready for a home of her own. This two-year-old girl is a beauty, both inside and out. With her long gray tabby and white coat, white paws, and a regal white ruff around her neck, she’s lovely to look at and a joy to be around. She loves people and gets along well with the other cats.
