Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Oct. 3: Rudder

He’s a short little guy, but that’s not how Rudder sees himself. This terrier mix thinks he’s as big as they come. He’s about 10 years old, and he sure enjoys when he gets some petting. In fact, most of the time, all he wants is to be in someone’s lap getting love. His favorite part is having his cute little bum scratched!

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Sept. 26: Asher

He’s a smiley and silly little pit bull who is also a little snuggly: meet Asher! He’s a bit of a Miss Winkles celebrity after his recent trip to Fresno State to enjoy a football game; he had a blast. He loves to meet new people and he even got a few kisses on his adorable little face, too. Asher dazzled it up, taking photos with some dancers, parachuters and a few fans.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Sept. 19: Chrissy

What do blue eyes, a long nose, and cream-colored fur all have in common? A dog named Chrissy. She’s got the gift of a beautiful smile, and a funny personality that make her a great dog to be around. Chrissy is about 2 years old, and she sure can run fast and bound like a Whippet (maybe there’s a little of that in her?) She’s a medium-sized gal at about 40 pounds and looks like she may also have some Australian Cattledog in her.
