Readers have submitted hundreds of entries to View’s pets section. Because we only can feature a few photos each week in the newspaper, we decided to expand the sharing online. We hope you enjoy these extra faces, and remind you to check back each Tuesday for more photos of your best friends.
Stefany Holmes shared this photo of her cat, Los Hobo Chico Junks (usually just “Bo”), a male tabby adopted from the Lied Animal Shelter last Mother’s Day. “He was found in a very young trio trotting along Tropicana. … I’m a writer, so I work from home, and he spends most of the day atop my desk chair (as pictured). We also have two large dogs, so when he’s not exercising his feline agility, he’s generally acting like one of the mutts, even scooping up all the food scraps that fall to the floor in the kitchen.”
John and Christine Ryan of Centennial Hills shared this photo of Cooper and McCartney out for a joy ride. “We rescued McCartney when he was 4 months old. He was very sick, and whoever owned him just threw him away like trash,” they wrote. “After three months of treatments, he became strong and is now 4 years old. McCartney is a Maltese mix and the sweetest dog you will ever meet. My little Yorkie, Mini Cooper, is 3 years old. They are best friends and partners in crime. They make us laugh everyday and fill our hearts love.”
Carla Stone of Las Vegas shared this photo of Mya, who was rescued last year from the Lied Animal Shelter. “I’m just going to lay here and pretend I’m sleeping and WHATEVER you do, don’t make eye contact — she can make the bed later.”
“Princess is a Jack Russell mix and is one of three dogs that is ‘in charge of’ my parents, Jack and Gloria Hurley, who live in Henderson,” wrote their daughter, Strutt Hurley. “She is the most sensitive of the dogs and maintains the role as leader of the pack when not being overpowered the by their 5-pound Chihuahua. Her sweet nature and sense of humor always shine through. All three dogs, Princess, Precious and Sarah, were taken in when their owners were unable to care for them.”
