Bouncing Ears, Soft Snores, and So Much More!

Our POTW is Shiloh, an 11 year old Mini Australian Shepherd who was adopted at 3 years old from an Aussie rescue! He lives in San Diego, California, with his favorite human, Olivia. When he isn’t enjoying long walks on the beach and barking at waves, he can be found eating, sniffing, barking at the dog next door, and sleeping and snoring. While he isn’t the biggest fan of other dogs, has a tendency to tear apart toys, and steal socks, he is such a beautiful boy with ears that bounce when he walks. How could you resist bouncing ears?! I know I can’t!
Have a great weekend, iSchoolers, and enjoy a nice walk (even if it can’t be on the beach)!

All Hail Queen Zanie!

Pet of the Week goes out to Zanie! She is the true queen of Professor Ocepek’s house, and she could not let her furry roommate, Jake, take all the POTW spotlight. She is described as possibly the most opinionated cat that has every lived, and there’s even a rule in Zanie’s house all about her: if she is sitting on you, you do not have to get up unless there is an emergency. What a powerful pet! šŸ‘‘

Say Cheese!

POTW goes out to Bagheera, the furry friend rounding out Jen’s trio of pets! No need to be afraid of her wide open mouth, she just loves to show her pearly whites. When she isn’t busy dazzling everyone with her smile, Bagheera loves to lounge on any available mattress she can find, and really…can we blame her? Have a restful weekend, iSchoolers!

A Puppy with Wisdom

Nynaeve shares her name with a certain special wisdom from the Wheel of Time book series. She is a great alleviator (though sometimes source) of stress. Just looking at her makes you say “Aw…” and forget about your assignments.

Have a great weekend, iSchoolers! If you’re ever feeling stressed, just look at some puppies!

Lights, camera, pose!

Pascal here is truly owning it in this picture, and the coordination of his bandana to the green background is outstanding! He could be working the runway in all his fashionable adorableness.Ā

What do you mean break is almost over?

Did you all miss Pet of the Week as much as we did? To get us back into the furry feature of the week, we have PadmƩ! She may look like she is a little scared for the new semester approaching, but her human says she loves to sit in on classes with her furry friend, Poe!

If you want to share your cute (and studious) pets, send us their picture and a fun fact about them at We would love to spotlight them and give them their moment to shine!

Sweet Furbaby

This lil’ puppy here is Ellie. She loves to solicit snuggles and destroy your pants when you’re not looking. She’s gotten a bit bigger since this picture was taken and is getting ready to turn one in a month. Lucky pup doesn’t have school on her birthday.
Have a fabulous winter break, everyone! We will be back in January with a new star-studded cast of pets. If you would like your pet to be included, please email us your photo to
