Heidi Sarna continues collecting photos and tributes to our furry friends.
7-year-old Lhaso Apso
Human Dad. Edward Bushman Anderson @Grand Victoria Cruises
Funniest behavior. Scratching at your leg like he wants to be petted, but the moment you move to pet him, he moves just out of your reach, until he eventually leads you to the pantry where his biscuits are stored.
Most endearing trait. Snuggles up to you when you're watching TV on the couch.
For me, Angus is the light and joy in our family as well as onboard our boat. Guests absolutely love him.
10-year-old male Rhodesian Ridgeback from South Africa
Human Mom. Nicola Stephens
Funniest behavior. He's the pre-rinse for our dishwasher.
Most endearing trait. He's not very affectionate, but he sleeps with me every night, so it makes me feel loved in a little way, even though he's so big and I don't get any sleep and look like a hag in the morning!
For me, my pet is a drooling, food-obsessed vacuum who I love dearly!
