Today's third contestant is a dog! Meet Howard:
Howard's family says:
After years of planning to adopt a dog and carefully choosing the gender, (we wanted female) and breed, (we wanted a pug) we ended up being adopted by Howard, a chocolate lab and basset hound mix, at a local shelter adoption event.
He stole our hearts with his short little legs and that bow out in the middle and his utter devotion to the family. Howie even has a middle name -- Alvin! He knows dozens of tricks and is currently in training to become a therapy dog. He will graduate in March! He's 6 years old now and maintains a strict 9 p.m. bedtime. As you can see he also enjoys wearing jewelry around and doesn't mind being dressed up either! Howie is certainly the 3rd child in our family.
And next we have Hermes:
His human companion says:
Hermes is my furry valentine because he loves to kiss! He is warm and sometimes seems like half siamese, half bear because he has thick fur and very large paws! He loves company and will snuggle up on our bed every night. Wherever his brother, Claudius, is asleep he'll snuggle up to him too so that they turn into one big furry pool of cat, and you can't tell one from the other.
