Sammy and Sugar

Meet brother and sister, Sammy and Sugar. These gorgeous long hair kittens are about 6 months old and have huge golden eyes and long white ear tufts. Sammy has a coat of chocolate with hints of burgundy. Sugar has tortoiseshell coloring of pale brown, black and a touch of white. They love to purr and cuddle when held and appreciate a daily brush. They play hide and seek, chase the ball and playfully wrestle.


Here’s Bella, an adorable terrier-shepherd-mix, 2-month-old puppy. She has a shorthair coat of gray, tan and white and an expressive face that sports a white muzzle with a blush of pink surrounding her little, black nose. She is perky, friendly, playful, affectionate, attentive and smart.
