Funniest moment you’ve had with your pet:    There are so many with Jameson. But, he likes to jump on one of our chairs, and then onto a piece of furniture that I have in front of a window. I have an “old fashion” bowl and pitcher on the piece of furniture. So, one day, he quickly jumped up on the chair, then the furniture and slide into the pitcher/bowl. The pitched broke and made a noise which spooked him. He immediately jumped down and ran, with his tail between his legs, into the back room of the house! Maybe he didn’t want us to catch him in the act, but we knew it was him. He is NOT supposed to be on the furniture!

What is the most rewarding aspect of owning your pet?   The happiness they bring into your life and the unconditional love. Watching Jameson and Cally play or just hang out together always makes me smile. And cuddling and petting a dog is a true stress reliever! 

Additional comments:    It’s very rewarding to watch Jameson and Cally together. You can see the bond they have. They are always together, whether they are out in the yard or in the house. One minute they are kissing each other, the next they are rough-housing and running around. I’m glad they get to grow up with each other!
