Pet Lovers Share Stories and Photos

Pet lovers love to share stories and photos of their furry or feathered friends. Share your stories with us on PCH Facebook and the PCH Blog!

One thing pet lovers love to do is share stories and photos of their furry or feathered friends.  If you want to see someone’s face light up, just ask him or her about their pet and soon they will be talking non-stop.  Even a complete stranger will proudly show you photos of a beloved dog, cat, bunny or bird.

PCH is pleased to sponsor an event that’s sure to delight pet lovers and others, too!  It’s the New Yorkie Runway doggie fashion show scheduled to take place on Friday, February 10th.  Celebrities and their canines will strut their stuff with fashionable dog outfits and accessories for an evening full of fun entertainment.  And a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the therapy dog charity called Angel On A Leash.  Our very own Danielle Lam from the Prize Patrol will be there, too, with Grizzly, her stylish Yorkie.

In addition, the one talented pooch who wins this year’s “American Idol” style doggie auditions and competition will get to walk the runway, too.  If you haven’t yet watched the dog audition videos or cast your vote for your favorite dog, please go to to do so before the February 3rd deadline.

Could this get any better?  We think so, because YOU CAN WATCH IT ALL UNFOLD LIVE on streaming video on the PCH Facebook Fan Page!  Which cute canine will win the most votes?  Will a brand new Prize Patrol mascot debut?  What other laughs and surprises will there be?  Tune in to PCH Facebook at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, 2/10/12, to see for yourself!

In the meantime, dear pet lovers, we invite you to share stories of YOUR furry or feathered friends, so please share them with us in PCH Blog comments and on Facebook!  Since I, too, am a pet lover, I’ll start the sharing.  Here is a photo of our adorable Min Pin (Miniature Pinscher) named “Pony” dressed in one of her numerous fashionable dog outfits.

PAW-some, don’t you think?  Pony has lots of personality and gives us many laughs.  One of her favorite pranks is to sneak into an open drawer or laundry basket when no one is looking and steal a sock.  Sometimes we’ll catch a glimpse of her running like a streaming black bullet, looking nervously over her shoulder to check if anyone sees her, with a fluffy white object dangling from her mouth. Any time a member of our household is missing a sock, the first place we check is in Pony’s crate where she sleeps.  She stores all her “treasures” in her bed!

Share your pet stories with us, too!

  2. Greetings. My name is Serta Pillow-top Mattress. You can call me Serta for short. I am a really close fnreid of Carolyn. I see her every day and night unless she goes out of town. Shucks, I guess I am her best fnreid although she bought me only about 9 months ago. Wait, do you buy your fnreids?? She is very compassionate. She naturally connects with people and establishes meaningful relationships.I came into the picture because she needed rest. She had lost her best fnreid and baby sister to cancer and did not know how to grieve. She was working 65 hours a week two days after her sister’s burial while taking three graduate level courses. These 65 hours was spent working with children who were severely emotionally disturbed. She pushed herself because she didn’t want to think as a result she hit a wall-burnout. She decided to take a year off from work and school and just spend some quality time with me, lounging around, reading, watching TV and eating bon bons. The problem was she never seemed to rest. She would lie down but her mind continued to race over various thoughts.Anyways, when she has her mind set on doing something she completes the task unless it involves resting. The quality time “thingy” lasted for about five months. She decided she was bored and falling behind on her Career Path.Carolyn has an associate degree as well as a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Human Services. She is currently pursuing a M. Ed, Counseling as well as a Health Care Reimbursement certificate. She is in her second year of graduate school. She needs four classes to complete her Health Care Reimbursement certification. She also volunteers at a program that provides groups and counseling for youth substance abusers. This is in preparation for her CDC II certification.She was an active duty soldier; she is now a disable wartime veteran who serves her country for over 9 years. She deployed to several countries. Amazingly, she is the mother of eight, 5 biological children and 3 stepchildren. Two of her biological children and two of her stepchildren still resides at home. If you ask me, she need to sleep for a week-teenagers!She is back in school and she is happy and excited. Now, she rest and sleep more. I see her a lot earlier than usual. She tells me she has to get her rest so she can stay on task. She plans to be a coder and own her own private practice in the counseling arena. She is very smart and is going to do just fine. Whenever she feels like she needs a break or to shut down for a while, I will be right there in her favorite room waiting. That is what best fnreids do.
