Pet of the Month: April 2009

Written by admin on . Posted in Pets, Special Sections.


Owner Kelly Kreth says, “I like to call Mini a good dog that does bad things. He has eaten countless socks, underwear, chewed through two $500 retainers and a pair of $500 eyeglasses. He barks incessantly and annoys the neighbors. Still, it is hard to stay mad at him: look at his face. He is also a dog of many disguises, as seen here: RainDog and Dog E. Fresh. As a publicist by trade, I always try to promote Mini. Is there any wonder that the dog of a publicity seeker would want his own publicist? Mini asked that I work on his behalf. He won’t pay me a retainer, but he will eat them. He won’t pay me for clips, but he will eat them. He won’t shut up, but if I make him famous he says he might stop peeing on the floor. I won’t negotiate with terrorists, but I will negotiate with rabid dachshunds.”
