Blue-eyed Boomer

Feeling a little frigid this week? Boomer will keep the chill at bay with his own icy blue eyes. And for an extra scratch behind his handsome ears, he’ll cuddle in your lap and warm you for hours. Emma is a lucky human to have this pupper for cozy company.

Sir Skeeter the Corgi of Pennsylvania

Our first November pet of the week is Skeeter! Skeeter is a corgi and a Pennsylvania native. He misses his human Krysta very much when she is off studying preservation techniques. But when she comes home, he gets very excited for belly scratches and long walks with her.

His daily jobs are protecting his house from bikes, squirrels, joggers, and the occasional rabbit. He also supports Abbie Mills while she does her homework by taking naps nearby in case she needs any assistance. In is free time, he loves playing fetch and tug, painting, and modeling.
