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.

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 ischool-support@illinois.edu.

proudly hail our alma mutter

Hey, recent iSchool alums! Have you received your diplomas in the mail yet? I can tell you our Pet of the Week certainly has, and, boy!, is she smug about it!

Lucy here will NOT stop barking on about being the valepuptorian of her grrrraduating class. Now that she has a muttster’s degree in advanced cuteness, she’s really the top dog around campus and at home. Her human, Sara, is such a proud puprent. No more ruff nights of studying for this smarty pants!

Have a clever cat or precocious pup in your dorm? Send them in to be our Pet of the Week! If you can handle the bragging, that is.

grey of muzzle, good of boi

Happy long weekend, iSchoolers! Before you frolic off for a few days of summer fun (or marathon Animal Crossing), let’s take a moment to pause and consider the true mysteries of life. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Will they ever bring back Firefly? They say that wisdom comes with age, so perhaps our Pet of the Week can give us some answers.

This is Christopher, and he has been the goodest of bois for 13 years. THIRTEEN. What knowledge rests behind his soulful eyes? What lessons can he teach us? We contacted his humans, Kathryn and Carol, for this report:

Christopher loves penguins. He calls them penglings.

…Christopher is an actual genius.

Have a beautiful mind living in your home? Send their picture and words of wisdom to the Help Desk! They could be our next Pet of the Week!

Working for the Weekend

It’s finally Friday!

As much as we’re looking forward to the weekend, we doubt we’re as excited as Chloe here. Chloe is so loved she gets her own, personal omelette every Saturday! Do you think she’ll make one for me, too?

Thank you to her human, Kerstin, for sharing this adorable fluff-ball with us!

Charisma. Uniqueness. Nerve. Talent.

How are y’all doing, iSchool? It’s a cloudy, chilly Friday afternoon here in Chambana, so we are dreaming of fantastic adventures in warmer climates. As luck would have it, this week’s Pet of the Week is a fantasy creature in his own right.

This handsome stallion is Griffin. Obviously, he’s magical, well-dressed, and the goodest boy. We’re also relatively certain he could take flight with those enchanting ears. His human, Shraddha, says he’s also sweet as sugar and a always brings the party. Pretty and a pup with personality? Griffin has put a spell on us!
