Meet our Pet of the Week

SA-Pet Willa Rae_2009.jpg

My name is Willa Rae, and I am named after our librarian’s little girl. She is the cute two-legged Willa Rae and I am the four- legged, furry Willa Rae. We make quite a pair.

I am a very happy girl and pretty much pampered by my mom and dad and all their friends. Everyone tells me I have the biggest smile they ever saw. I am somewhat of a comedian and a very good watchdog. I can play catch by myself, run like the wind and love to rough-house with all my four-legged friends.
