Furry Friend Friday


The Biggest Furry Friend Friday Yet!

giant george

Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  Today is our biggest interview yet, you may recognize this pooch as he is quite the celebrity.  Giant George is his name and he is the World’s Biggest Dog, which was officially verified on February 15, 2010 by Guinness World Records!  His face has been everywhere, from being on The Oprah Winfrey Show to Live! With Regis and Kelly, to writing his own book, George is an extremely busy dog so I was very lucky to steal a few moments of his time.

So George I imagine you are very busy, what are some of your favorite things to do?

I love to spend the day sleeping in, eating a nice brunch, and chatting with my peeps on Facebook.  I recently released my book, Giant George: Life with the World’s Biggest Dog, so the promotion of it takes up a fair amount of my time as well.  I love spending time with my little humanoid brother and sister and am very protective of them, you can see more about my family here.

I noticed that you are a big fan of bacon, do you have any other favorite treats?

I love all types of meat!  Bacon is a favorite and so is roasted chicken, if I can smell it cooking, I’ll hang around all afternoon hoping a nice juicy piece falls to the floor so I can swipe it up.

Do you have any favorite toys?

I love the golf cart my dad drives me around in, it’s so much fun feeling the wind in my fur as we ride off into the sunset!

Wow a golf cart?!  No offense but being as big as you are I would think you would be nervous to ride on a golf cart, is there anything that does scare you?

No offense taken and I really can’t get enough!  Chihuahuas on the other hand, those I can do without!  Even though they’re small they can be tough and are little ankle biters!  I’m not a fan of water either, pools, puddles, and buckets of water make me very nervous, I try to avoid them at all costs. I’m sure you can imagine my bath time is not fun for anyone involved.

When you’re not riding in your golf cart, do you have a favorite place to go for a walk?

Well we have a local dog park that I like to go to, I have a few friends that I meet up with every so often.  Other than that I like to walk around my hood and keep an eye on everything.

George you seem like a smart dog to me, what are your feelings on pet insurance?

It’s great!  Pet’s are like family, protect us like you would any other member! Oh, and you’ll save a ton of dough, that helps too!

George is a very smart pup, and I had a great time interviewing him!  He makes some great points about pet insurance too, our pets are members of our family, and should be protected!  Accidents can happen to pets just as easily as they can with humans, and you wouldn’t want your furry friend to go without proper medical care simply because of the cost.  Call us at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today, for only a few dollars a month you can rest easy knowing that your pet is protected.

 

Furry Friend Friday With Aurora!

aurora

Happy Friday everyone, it’s a beautiful day out there, and Aurora was nice enough to take a moment out of her play time for our interview!  This little pup is up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter, she’s been there for a little over a week and most of her peers have already found homes, so she is ready for her forever family!

Aurora, thank you so much for taking the time to sit down with me, I noticed you were outside running around with some friends, is that your favorite thing to do?

Yes!  I love getting outside and running around in the grass, especially on a beautiful day like this, not too hot, not too cold, it’s perfect!  I have a lot of energy and playing fetch and running around outside are my favorite pastimes, after that cuddling is my favorite thing to do, but I can’t sit still until I burn off all my energy first!

Do you have a favorite toy here at the shelter?

We are really lucky here, we get to share all of the toys so there is always something new to play with!  Like I said fetch is one of my favorite things to do so I love my ball, it would be nice to have toys of my very own in a real home though.

Is there anything that scares you?

Not really, I’m just a puppy so I’m very happy.  I’m not a nervous puppy either, I’d rather spend my time playing than worrying!

That’s good to know, since you are so fearless you must love adventures, do you have a favorite place to go for a walk?

Well since I’m at the shelter we don’t go too far, my volunteer friends bring me outside a lot though and I absolutely love it, anytime I can get out is exciting for me. They bring me out a lot because we are working on my leash training, I’m not perfect yet but am practicing!  I was originally from Tennessee and there were a lot of places to roam around down there, I hope that my new family brings me on a lot of adventures because I love to explore!

Aurora, why do you think pet insurance is important for all pet owners?

Well if you ask me, I don’t have enough money to pay my own bills, and vet visits can really add up, especially when they are unexpected!  Pet insurance takes the worry out of bringing your pet to the vet (at least for you), and small monthly payments can be a lot more affordable than one big chunk of money upfront!

Aurora’s right, vet bills can really add up! These bills can be extremely costly, and no one wants to pay a huge amount of money all at once, affordable monthly payments are all it takes to insure your pet’s health, so call us up for a pet insurance quote today! If you’re interested in adopting Aurora, please contact the Sterling Animal Shelter.

 

 

Furry Friend Friday With Kyle!

kyle furry friend friday

Happy Furry Friend Friday everyone!  We’re back at it and today Kyle was gracious enough to take some time to chat with me.  Kyle is a one year old terrier mix up for adoption at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA.  If you’re looking for your new best friend, look no further!  Kyle has been waiting for his forever home for a while now and is ready to meet his match.

So Kyle I hear that you are not originally from Massachusetts, where were you before you came to the Northeast Animal Shelter?

Well believe it or not I was in a kill shelter in California!  I’m glad I dodged that one, let me tell you!  I was lucky enough to be found by a rescue organization that works with the shelter here in Salem, and they scooped me up and transported me to the East Coast.

Wow what a scary situation, now that you’re safe what is your favorite way to spend the day here?

I love getting to leave my cage!  As long as I’m not in my cage I’m having fun, and I have a lot of energy to burn once I’m not cooped up in there.  I love to go outside and play fetch, that is my favorite game for sure.  After a nice long game, I like to curl up in the closest lap I can find!  I’m only 8 pounds so I’m the perfect lap dog!  My friends that work at the shelter take me outside with them sometimes and rub me while we get some fresh air, I love doing that especially now that the beautiful weather is here.

Do you have a favorite toy here?

Well as I said fetch is my favorite game, so I would have to say my ball is my favorite toy.  If you’ll throw it, I’ll chase it all day!

Is there anything you’re afraid of?

Well the kill shelter in California was a very scary experience, and even though everyone here in Salem is very nice I hate being in my cage.  I get so nervous when I have to go back in, it’s hard not knowing when I’ll get to go out again or play with my friends!  Sometimes I put up a fuss when I have to get back in, but I’m young so how can you blame me?  As long as I’m not in my cage I’m fine, but if my new family wants to crate train me it wouldn’t be as scary.

Since you’re not a fan of your cage you must be pretty excited when you get to go out for walks, do you have a favorite route that you take?

I’m just happy to be out and about and love to go anywhere!  We have a really nice grassy area near the shelter, and I love going over there to sniff and roll around in the grass, especially when it’s sunny!

 Kyle I know you’re young, but why would you want your new family to consider pet insurance for you?

Even though I’m young and healthy, anything can happen!  I’m very careful of course but anything can happen, accidents are accidents for a reason  and even though I don’t plan on getting sick or hurt, I’d want to be protected if something ever happened.

Kyle makes a good point, accidents are accidents for a reason, which is why it is always a good idea to consider pet insurance regardless of your pets age! All of our furry friends deserve the best care possible, so give us a call for a pet insurance quote today!  If you’re interested in meeting Kyle, contact the Northeast Animal Shelter, he would be the perfect companion for an active young couple or family with teenagers!
