Tippy

This is Tippy. He is a miracle survivor. He was in a devastating house fire over the Easter weekend. Everyone (six people, four dogs and a cat) got out safely, but the house was a total loss. Tippy could not be found and was presumed dead. Hours later, after the fire was put out, firefighters found him in the bathroom, hiding under clothing and wet drywall that had fallen and was protecting him. No one could believe he survived!

He was sooty, wet and frightened but unharmed. Tippy is a tiny Yorkie and only has three legs (he was born that way). This picture was taken after the three shampoos he needed to get cleaned up. He was jumping around right after a quick snuggle and checking out the new digs where is is staying. He is so sweet and truly is an Easter miracle dog.

Alfie

Alfie is a charming one-year-old tabby cat adopted from the Winnipeg Humane Society who takes pride in showing off his big, fluffy, orange tail. Besides napping, he enjoys spending his time playing with feathers and sitting under running water in the bathtub.

-- Ava Jerao and Adam Kozachuk

 

Bob

Most pets just bring you the paper; Bob reads it to you.
