Likes: Sweets, especially cake and cookies; bringing his jingly toy into Karen's bed at 3am; being scratched under the chin; curling up in the bathroom sink.

Santa, please bring me a bunk bed!

Likes: Morning walks, wrestling on the floor with our oldest son Scott, playing in the snow, sitting in the backyard in the Fall. Any kind of pork, eating Chipper's food, barking at other dogs.

Scott's My Buddy

October: Jasper

Likes: Treats!, playing with toy mice, eating catnip, getting groomed by my adopted brother Milo, having my back rubbed, sitting by the open windows.

Let's go scare some dogs!

September: Widget

Likes: Sitting in front of the TV and staring back at anyone watching it, snoozing under the bed, biscuit treats, belly rubs, wrestling, hanging with my cat pals Hotsy and Asta and visiting with my Sit-A-Pet pal Matt.

August: Eartha Kitty

Likes: Food, especially nightly treats; watching birds, squirrels and our tiny garden mouse through the sliding door; being up high, especially on the kitchen island; sleeping on the dryer when it's running; sleeping at the foot of the bed; having my belly, back and neck rubbed; darting in front of my two dads; chasing Smithers, my rambunctious (icky!) housemate; lounging in open windows.

I want to be evil. I want to be bad.

July: Lizzie

Likes: Waffles with syrup and peanut butter, poptarts, cupcakes, scrambled eggs, chocolate chip cookies. I like to try and work it off by running with my Mom and swimming in an especially scummy algae covered pond. Chasing wild geese is also a lot of fun, as is chasing Toonces the Cat around the house. Cuddling, playing with the kids and car rides are the best!

I ate 2 dozen cupcakes without leaving a trace of evidence!

June: Bacci

Likes: Telling people to get out of his house. Rough-housing. Waking people up as soon as the sun comes up. Sleeping on your newly pressed clothes. Licking leather shoes. Going into the shower as soon as the water has been turned off. Chewing plastic bags. Biting your nose, chin or whatever has a human edge and purringly hanging on.

Pet sitters taste yummy!

May: Max

Likes: Digging in his soil, basking under his mock sun lamp, taking long baths, and hiding anywhere he can fit! He loves to eat dandelion, romaine, most types of lettuce, and cactus fruit. He occasionally gets strawberries and crushed apples as a sweet treat. And he loves listening to music on the radio.

Catch me if you can!

April: Bowzer

Likes: Running in the woods and down to the river, going for rides, being the watch dog while hanging out on the porch, baking himself while lying next to the wood stove, and letting all the other dogs know that he's the boss right away (because in his own house he comes in last in the pecking order with another dog and 2 cats).

I take Homeland Security very seriously!

Read More

March: Molson

Likes: Trail walking with her sister and best friend, LaBatts, dining al fresco, frolicking in the snow, relaxing in front of the fire, howling at sirens, and strolling in the moonlight with neighbor, Bert (the stud muffin dog on the block).

With a name like Molson, you know I'm looking forward to St. Patty's Day!

Read More

February: Grant Jackson-Lee

Likes: Traveling on his private jet, fierce corporate takeovers, fine dining, literary classics, the symphony, high endurance sports with his brother Elliott.

Excuse me, but I expect MORE presents for Valentines Day than I got for Xmas.

Read More

January: Captain Haddock

Likes: Long walks and jogs (Captain Haddock has run several marathons), jazz and low brass, especially partial to e-flat, the doggie park, Daisy (the Shagum's pound special), Bernie (the Boone's beagle), Nora (the new pug Puppy next-door), tennis balls, BBC tv, and the guest room couch/sofa bed.

Blistering barnacles! Thundering typhoons! There's an unknown dog loose on the street and I gotta tell everyone.
