One of this week’s pets is Buffy. She’s a female yellow Lab mix of three years old. Buffy is an energetic, bouncy gentle jumper. She can be a little hesitant around new people, but she is the sweetest little lady once she has warmed up to you.

Buffy does need to be the only pet of the home, as she will assert her dominance over other animals. Like most Labs, she is a little neurotic and likes things done her way. She loves to snuggle, and she is a dream to walk.


Philip is a one to three year old male domestic shorthair. And he is the most mild-mannered cat you will ever meet. This sweetheart is extremely affectionate and easy-going. He loves to be held and even loves belly rubs.

He is very low energy and a bit lazy, so he will likely spend his days snuggling with you or laying in the sun. Philip has a benign umbilical hernia that is not a concern, but he does have a bump on his belly.

His gentle and sweet nature makes him the perfect cat for young kids, or people who are looking for a quiet companion.
