KaiserRoyal Oak, MIKaiser "Poochie" was more than my Granddoggy, he was a loving member of the Palmer/Edmondson family for 10 years. He came to live with me when my son returned home for a spell. When my son moved out I refused to let Kaiser go with him. He did goofy things to make us laugh laugh and never lost an opportunity to get petted and scratched behing the ears. His favorite game was tug-o-war which he always won. He never let on that he was feeling poorly and in pain though h

ZeldaRoyal Oak, MIA couple years ago my husband started asking about getting a kitten. We already had two very large dogs and I am not a fan of cats, so I kept declining. I was not ready to have a third animal in my house, especially since my dog Ben does not play well with others.
Well, in May of 2011 my mother sent me a text (knowing that my husband, Mark, had been wanting a kitten) of a tiny orange kitten that had found it's way to my her porch. The kitten had been living on my mom
Max HartySouthwest MichiganWe have all heard the phrase "actions speak louder than words." Full of attitude, lots of "chutzpah", and love for his two dads, Max needed no words to make himself understood. With a look, a bark, or just a stance, you always knew who had the upper hand. A lover of treats - but not of pats, Max ruled the roost, both at home and at Life Story Network.
Max's story "sort of" begins in 1988. At least that was when Jerry began talking about adopting a dog. Several months
Gracie Sue BauschkeSouthwest Michigan"Gracie Sue's life began on March 26, 2001. She was born to a family of Daisy Dogs and was fluffy and scruffy and endlessly sweet through and through. Her gentle spirit and her big brown eyes were immediately apparent to everyone who met her. She certainly made herself known to our family the day she was chosen from all the puppies in the kennel. She sat back from the others, hunched on her rounded little bottom, and looked right up at us as if to say, ""What about me? I
"First impressions can say a lot. Lance Johnson will never forget the day he went to the Kalamazoo Animal Shelter, and walked past rows and rows of dogs barking and yelping. There, amidst all the hubbub, one particular pooch stood patiently waiting. Lance asked him to sit, and he sat. He put his hand to the cage, and the dog outstretched a paw. One shake later, Lance knew his new friend had adopted him, and Probie knew he had found a home.
When Lance arrived home
LonelySouthwest Michigan"Toni sadly announces the death of her beloved cat Lonely on January 4th, 2008. She will be dearly missed by Toni and her family.
Lonely was first given to me by Michael in Spring of 1993 when she was only 7 weeks old and we lived in a small basement apartment in Ferndale. The picture of her with the red carpet is our only image of Lonely as a kitten. As I was in between jobs at the time, I was spending a lot of time by myself and wished for a cat to keep me company.
Turbo Charger XISouthwest MichiganTurbo loved living on our lake. He could play for hours in the water. He enjoyed boat rides but it was always a challenge for us. It didn’t bother him if the boat was going 5mph or 50mph. If he felt like swimming he’d just jump overboard and we would have to stop turn around and go get him. He had a mind of his own.
Turbo loved the woods. His nose was on the trail at all times, however, he never let Scott get to far away without him coming back to make sure
