Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.

    Dudley says “My sleep number is D-O-G!”

    They’re all cuties.

  • Paco travels by private jet? What a lucky pet

    • Paco the jetsetter is adorable!

    • Maybe it’s a Paws & Pilots flight? (or words to that effect) Private pilots fly adoptable animals from high-kill shelters to high-adoption-demand shelters, or to people who have already committed to adopting them, often on a route they would be flying anyway. Critter gets not killed, pilot gets a tax deduction.

      • What a cool program!!! A dog in a high kill shelter deserves to ride in style!

        • That’s where Ghostface Koji came from! Paws & Pilots!

          • My mom is one of their pilots. She lives in the south (lots of high kill shelters) and has brought several dogs up when she comes to visit us in DC.

            She also does AngelFlight– bringing people with chronic medical conditions to specialized treatment centers (lots to Johns Hopkins), since the cost of commercial flights would add up over time.

      • Thank you. I will be sure we participate.

      • Sorry for the downer reminder – but there is no such thing as a “high kill” shelter. A “no Kill” shelter or rescue group simply rescues the most desirable animals and passes on the terrible task of euthanizing animals to others. I applaud their work, but let’s not pretend.

    • Not saying it isn’t, but how do you know it’s a jet? Could be a prop a la King Air etc. Sorry, airplane nerd here.

      • Not an airplane nerd here, but the only time I’ve ever been on a plane anywhere near that small, it was a propeller plane. (Thank God I happened to have earplugs on me; it was amazingly loud.)

        So I just assumed this one would also be a propeller plane.

        • 4:25 here– Ha! You would FLIP if you saw my mom’s (prop) plane. Four seats, those with generous hips need not apply. As she says “you don’t get in it, you put it on”.
          And yeah, crazy loud. But fast!

      • I believe in most, if not all, prop planes all the seats are facing forward.

        • Nope – some turbo props have rear facing – or at least my obnoxious cousins does.
          Who has a facebook page for their plane? Obnoxious cousins.

  • I especially like the first two pics, with the animals cuddling each other.

    And Ghostface Koji — kawaii!

  • It is a Pilatus turbo jet made in Switzerland. He does fly private. Now that I know about the program I will be sure he passes it along.
