The Pet Perks Section of the July 4 issue features pet photos sent in by readers. Some owners had special comments about their family companions.
Tyler and Kaycee Rezabek and parents, Tobias
Ginger, 5, Miniature Dachshund
Dave and Marilyn Coffey family, Crete
“Ginger loves to go for walks and is very lovable and playful! Always wants to be included in family outings.”
Marley Faye, 2, Maltese-Poodle
Jeannette Widick, Crete
“Special as can be. She had her left eye removed when she was only 3 months old, but there’s no way that stops her from anything. Everyone loves her and she loves everyone. Her favorite place to sleep is on top my pillow above my head and she loves snow peas.
Juliette, 10, 300 lb. Vietnamese Pot-Bellied Pig
Crystal Dewey, Crete
“We adopted her from the humane society last year. She is 10 years old and nearing the end of her life, but her intelligence and sense of humor bring us much joy. Juju is about 300 lbs, which is large for a pet pig, but we are happy to provide her a cushy and spoiled retirement home.
Becky Brewer, Crete
“This is the look that Daisy gives me whenever I stop petting her! Otherwise, she’s all smiles. That’s why she’s special to me: she’s a happy-go-lucky dog that brings joy to everyone she meets.”
Ginger, 4 1/2, Cairn Terrier,
Renker Family, Crete
“Ginger is the most loyal friend we could ever have. She loves to spend time with us. (She doesn’t know that she isn’t a human.) She will fetch anything we throw. Seriously, anything! (balls, sticks, apples, weeds, rocks...) One of her favorite games in the fall is chasing apples.
Calico Rose, 6 1/2, Jack Russel Terrer,
Teresa and Wayne Hunt, Denton
“Cali brightens event the dreariest day for Wayne and I. Her energy keeps us on our toes. Her love touches the very depths of our hearts.”
Shelby Betts, 15, Yorkshire Terrier
Terry and Cheryl Betts
Cheri Chalupa, Wilber
“Daisy and Cleo are special to me because they can always make me laugh.”
Toby, 7, Yorkshire Terrier; Daisy, 5, Silky Terrier mix

“Daisy is very special because we found her after being gone for 3 weeks. Toby is extra special because we have had him since he was a puppy. Both are part of the family and a joy to have around.”
April Bruns and Faith Cronk and family, Beatrice
“She is very special to us and our children, she is a therapy dog for our. She is also like another one of our kids. Whenever we get ready to go she is the first to the door. She goes to the grandparents, parades, camping trips and all family activities. She found a special spot in our hearts as well as our kids lives too.
