Pet Photos of the Week

“This is my dog, Kippy, a West Highland white terrier. I often kid that it took me 10 years to really love her, but now I do not know what I would do without her. During her younger years, she had tons of energy and was very puppylike for many years (in other words she was a lot of work). But once she turned 10, she began to settle down. She is a very sweet and loving member of our family. In the past year, our neighbor brought Duncan into our lives and he comes over to play and give Kippy a work out. It has been really good for Kippy to have Duncan around as a playmate." Julie Ann Harrington, budget manager and assistant to the dean, School of Health Sciences.
