Pet Peeves: Dreading the ‘cone of shame’

With Roxy Starfish

Yo dawg,

roxy Good to see your smiling mug again. Thanks for looking back this way to meet my friends looking for a new home. They all come to you Roxy cool pet-vetted. Props to both Giive a (bleep) and The Santa Monica Daily Press for helping spread the word. Together we’re changing lives right here and now — friendly, furry, funny lives.

But I got a peeve …

Roxy’s Pet Peeves: Whose walk is this anyway?

With Roxy Starfish

‘Sup Dawgs,roxy

A peeve? Sure. Don’t we all have them here and there? But first, gratitude. Thanks to Giive a (bleep) and The Santa Monica Daily Press, we’ve been helping my buddies of the canine and feline persuasions find new forever homes. Because humans, like you, are generally pretty awesome. But not perfect.

Now, my peeve. What’s the deal with taking us for walks, then not letting us check stuff out? We want to sniff things, pee on things, breathe in the great outdoors beyond our usual fenced confines. Whose walk is this anyway? The tug on the leash? Yeah, we feel it, but we can’t help ourselves. Have you stuck your snout in the lawn lately? Patience, people. We’re doing what we do.

Roxy’s Pet Peeves: Do we look like tissues?

With Samantha Davidson

Hey, hey my little rascals,

roxyRoxy here!  I have heard that my adorable buds have found some new homes, and I couldn’t be happier. I have even more awesome friends I would like to share with you this week, but before I do, I want to thank Giive a (bleep) and The Santa Monica Daily Press for helping me get the word out.

Actually, you know what? There is one last thing I really need to get off my chest that has really been buggin’ me. So sometimes our owners get sad. Thats totally natural. We are here to help and support you. But for the love of cats and dogs, do not wipe your tears and snot all over our beautiful fur coats! We don’t get to shower as much as you guys do, and you have no idea how gross dried tears and snot feels on an animal’s body.
