If I could change one thing about my pet, it would be: She has arthritic joints.
My pet's worst habit is: Snoring some nights -- sleeps in her bed in our room.
I wish my pet could: Fetch the newspaper.
Nobody knows my pet: Likes to go to Starbucks with me and I get her pumpkin bread.
My pet's best asset is: Kindness to everyone including the grandkids.
If I had to choose a different pet, it would be: I would get another Lab.
My pet's favorite treat would be: ''Milk Bones'' and pumpkin bread.
My favorite time of the day to spend with my pet is: Night - she is glad when I get home.
