My little Chihuahua, Kelso, is having his fifteen minutes of fame after his photo was chosen as the “Pet of the Week” on the Humane Society of the United States’ website!
I had submitted his photo a couple of weeks ago and kind of forgot about it, but here he was in my inbox with the Humane Society’s weekly newsletter. The photo was taken at our local park, which he adores. He has sniffed, peed and pooped his way through every square inch of the place—loving it all the way.
We adopted Kelso from our local SPCA shelter two years ago. There’s just something about a Chihuahua!
Below is his “selfie” which I submitted to the weekly contest.

Now I suppose the next logical step is a reality TV show: “Keeping Up with Kelso.” At least I don’t have to worry about him making a sex tape. He’s been neutered.
“He just heard that Michael Vick wants to get a dog.”
Wow! Was I surprised today to get an email from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) letting me know that my cat, Culvey, was being featured on their website. I had submitted his photo and a brief “bio” about him to the HSUS “Pet of the Week” contest they administer. Every week a pet that has been rescued in some way or adopted from a shelter is featured in their email newsletter.
This article for December is called Home for the Holidays. (Click on the link to go to that page.) There’s a photo slideshow you can scroll through to view the pets whose corresponding stories appear on the page. Culvey is the second photo–and a very handsome fellow he is too, if I do say so myself.
Please consider adopting your next pet from a shelter and, as always, please spay or neuter your pets. Help prevent pet overpopulation, which always leads to the tragedy of euthanasia for unwanted animals.
Culvey says “Thank you!”
