Athena – January 2020
Meet our January 2020 Pet of the Month!!!
Hi! My name is Athena and I am the happiest gal you have ever met. I live with my mom, dad, and cat siblings. I have the best home, where mom and dad take me for walks, give me lots of pet toys, and where they love to play fetch with me.
My favorite activity in the whole wide world is chasing the red dot! Chasing the dot in the yard is the most fun, but I love it even more when my cat siblings chase the dot alongside me and I truly cannot resist a good treat, well any treat I should say. I have a wonderful spot at my house where I can keep an eye on things and warn mom and dad of anything happening in the neighborhood.
To help pass the time, I like to sit with my favorite stuffed Tiger, who goes everywhere with me, when Mom and Dad come home, I need to show them that Tiger is still right there with me!
Another one of my hobbies is my love for going on cars rides with Dad! When we go, he will often let me ride up front with him and how great is that!? We go to all sorts of places, like the store, or Grandmas and even to my other dog friends’ houses!!
Don’t let my size fool you…. I’m a gentle giant who loves meeting new people and animals of all kinds. Some may be intimidated by my size, but I just love everyone!
Who’s got 4 paws and is told she’s a good girl? THIS GIRL!
Liko – December 2019
Our December Pet of the Month is here!
Our holiday treat to end 2019 is Liko, a 1-and-a-half-year-old, Golden Retriever, who is friendly and energetic. Liko really loves playtime and his tennis balls, especially late in the evenings.
Some of Liko’s hobbies include digging holes, sleeping much of the day away and staying up all night long, chewing on socks, and trying to get as many treats as possible, which he is smart enough, to come up with being super cute, to get the inexperienced person to give him, any chance he gets.
Liko’s favorite time of the year is winter because he has a blast playing and jumping in the fluffy snow and making sure that he gets himself and anyone around him full of that lovely white stuff. Make sure though that if you are unwrapping those gifts you keep him away because he will make sure that he helps opens all your gifts as well!
Dash – November 2019
Dash is Our November Pet of the Month, and This Sweet Little Gray Feline May Have Had a Hard Start in Life but is Bound to Have a Gobbling Good Time Here on Out!!!
Dash made his way into his family’s heart by way of his best friend Jackson. Jackson brought Dash home during a rainstorm and demanded the family’s attention outside their door. Jackson’s family was able to catch and bring this darling little kitten in and Jackson, “of course” was just as proud as could be, that he saved this cute young man.
Dash’s family originally proceeded to put him back outside and lock him in their barn until the next day, when arrangements could be made for him to be in the house. By the next day unfortunately, Dash had found a way to trap himself in their UTV and they could not find him. The family had decided to use the UTV and drove off with little Dash inside…. Let’s just say that the UTV stopped promptly and of course it was during another rainstorm and his family had to coax him out, again in the rain and mud.
Dash’s family believe they are the luckiest family in the world for him to have come into their lives.
Dash was named Dash due to his love of dashing all over the house, but he is just as content to lay on your lap and purr his life away. As you can see from the photo’s Dash and Jackson are still the best of friends and they love to snuggle. Dash has made such an impression on everyone that you, just can not help but love him.
So, this Thanksgiving you will find Dash all warm and well fed in his home and with the loves of his life, his family!!!
Quincy – October 2019
Quincy is our October Pet of the Month and this, gray chinchilla has a wild personality! He is a real spitfire and exceptionally smart, which means once he’s out of the cage, he is nearly impossible to catch! He dodges and fakes directions so quickly that by the time his owner sees him, he is at the other side of her room behind his cage, where he is difficult to catch! Quincy is also not easily fooled by treats: he would rather zoom around the room than eat any treat his owner offers. Sometimes, he is even quick enough to nab it out of her hand and still escape capture! However, once Quincy is in his best friends’ arms, he is the sweetest, most docile creature ever and he always loves to snuggle with her.
Our October Pet of the Month is no trick and he is one treat that his owner will always keep!!!
Marsie – September 2019
Marsie is our September Pet of the Month!!!
It may be fall, but the cooler weather is not going to slow this cool rider down. Marsie loves to go for rides in the convertible with her family, and she just attended her first car show at the end of August; where this little girl became the star of the show. Marsie can bring a smile to anyone’s face and she has the ability to get others to talk about their own fur babies current and past.
If this sweet little girl is not playing fetch, you will find her playing with her favorite gorilla or fox toy around the house or making new puppy friends with all those that come to the house for a visit. At times she can be a bit rambunctious, with her friends but they seem to warm up to her and all have a good time!
This Maltese Mix darling joined her forever family in March of 2019 when she was just 10 weeks old and has managed to bring joy and happiness to all, you will not find any leaves dropping onto our September Sweetheart!!!
Vayda – August 2019
Vayda is our August Pet of the Month!!!
This fantastic summertime pup is usually very calm and quiet, unless she decides she decides she wants to play with her barnyard cat friends, licking them or gently pulling their tails, always wanting to playing tag.
This lucky and loyal girl lives on a hobby farm with horses and always wants to be around her family and barnyard friends.
Vayda enjoys teasing her human sister Haley, as well and will become very sassy when trying to get Haley’s attention or when she wants to play.
Vayda has recently graduated from Beginner obedience class and is currently excelling in the Intermediate class.
Even though Vadya has webbed feet for swimming she is still uncertain about water. She will wade up to her neck but is still afraid to take her first swimming paddles.
If you are looking for a wonderful beach buddy, just bring the toys and you will not have to look any further than this true summertime princess!
Libby – July 2019
Libby is a Lab mix who came to her family from a foster home in Minnesota three years ago, when she was just eight weeks old. This little firecracker was spunky right from the start! She quickly developed a love for tennis balls which she continues to carry with her to the present. Libby loves to run fast and retrieve the tennis ball, and the father you throw it, the better.
When Libby needs to cool down, her pink kiddie pool is a favorite, but if that’s not available, the muddy puddle at the end of the driveway works just fine. Libby’s second favorite thing is digging; whether it be in the snow, water, or dirt. One of her favorite water spots is Bluegill park; where she digs rocks from the bottom of the lake which she will bring back to shore to share with anyone who wants a gift.
This 4th of July sparkler has a love for her family, any person she meets, and her “boyfriend” Leo who lives in the house behind her.
Libby loves to go to the bank with her daddy; where she goes inside and “helps” with transactions, entertains customers waiting in line, and the tellers who always have special treats waiting just for her; after which she goes to manager’s office to get an extra special treat that they get special just for her.
Libby enjoys many car rides and walks with her mommy. She loves to run errands with her owner’s daughter, Pam. Thy play ball every day and share a snack each night. Libby also loves her talks with Eric, and they share a special bond.
If we could summarize Libby in one word, it would be…”HAPPY”!
Libby would like to thank all the vets and employees at Mosinee Veterinary Clinic for giving her this opportunity to tell everyone about herself and share her story.
