Stephanie Gaibler of Great Falls’ dog Cali Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
Sandy Selander of Great Falls shares these two pictures of her newest puppies, Visa (female) and Chief (male). “Visa” (above) has her eyes laser focused on a nugget of freeze dried liver, which she dearly wanted. She is a show dog in training. “Chief” (below) is Visa’s half-brother. Same father from a different mother. They were born two days apart. He too, has his eyes laser focused on a liver nugget. He looks like he is saying “I am so cute, may I please have my liver treat now!”
Jack O. Nutter writes: Mr. Giant is my beloved now 13-year-old adopted tabby cat. He is a devoted lap cat who loves to sleep by my side at night. If there is a sun patch through the window, Mr. Giant will find the spot. In this picture, he has found his way into a kitchen cabinet to stare out, thinking no one can see him. He had a vagabond life before ending up in the shelter and coming here. The shelter said he was 8 months old and, of course, I thought he was the largest cat ever for that age, hence his name. Turns out he was 18 months old and stills weighs in at a comfortable 20 pounds. He is indeed a valued member of the household and a spoiled beast.

Beth Kelly-Russo of Great Falls submitted this photo of her daughter Catie, who is a 15-year-old sophomore in high school, with her beloved Monroe. Monroe is a standard brown poodle born in Monroeville, Pa. – hence his name, Monroe. Catie got Monroe when she was visiting her relatives in Pennsylvania.
“Reggie the Hedgie” and his owner Bea of Great Falls. After collecting pictures and trinkets of hedgehogs for years, Bea decided she wanted a living, breathing hedgehog. They are hard to find, but she eventually got “Reggie the Hedgie” as a baby and watched him grow up and out. Hedgehogs are pudgy! Bea is the hit of her dorm in Lynchburg College when Reggie comes to visit.
