Hi folks! Indy here.
I’ve created this page because I want to shine the spotlight on fur babies. But I’ll need your help. Please submit the following:
- the two best photos of your fur babies—dogs, cats, ferrets, lamas, and even rats will do,
- your fur baby’s registered name, if you have a purebred,
- your fur baby’s name or nickname,
- your fur baby’s date of birth or the date your fur baby passed away,
- the breed of your fur baby,
- your fur baby’s birth weight,
- today’s weight,
- other interesting tidbits, and
- a short story that’ll make me laugh or cry.
If you’re not a writer, don’t worry. I’ll tweak your story and make it shine brighter that the shiniest star in the galaxy.
The first photo and story will appear as a post on Mum’s my blog. Click through to read the first story I wrote about my older brother, Patches.
Then, on this page, I’ll add a second photo and the information I’ve requested. If you don’t have all of the information I’ve asked for, please send in what you have.
Just imagine—your fur baby can be immortalized forever!
Since I’m the one who created this cool page, I’ve included one of my baby photos.
That’s me at eight weeks old, wearing one sweet Harley shirt!
I sat on the coffee table and listened to Mum read the novel she’s working on.
Registered Name: My breeder named me Leanonme’s Indygo
Nickname: Mum and Pop call me Indy
Date of Birth: November 11, 2011
Breed: I’m a Chinese Crested Powder Puff
Birth Weight: 2 pounds, 3 ounces
Today’s Weight: Slim and trim at 8 pounds, 4 ounces
Interesting Tidbits: I love wrapping my paws around anyone who’ll hold me. I curl my paws under me just like a cat, and then I take a nap on the top of the sofa. My eyes are the same color as Paul Newman’s—piercing blue.
Here’s the second photo of my older brother, Patches!
Patches is a Harley dude too!
Registered Name: He doesn’t have one because Mum purchased Patches at a pet shop
Name & Nickname: Patches and/or Squishy
Date of Birth: December 5, 2002
Breed: An extra-large, black and white Shih Tzu
Birth Weight: 5 pounds
Today’s Weight: A hefty 24 pounds
Interesting Tidbits: Patches was featured in a 2004 Shih Tzu doggie calendar. He’s very particular about who he hangs out with. Actually, he’s a snob. Patches gets stressed out easily. Foam forms at the corners of this mouth, and then he drops a foot of drool at Mum’s feet. Yicky!

Schultz-y, my new fur baby friend, made a special appearance on Mum’s my blog today.
Because I want to pay tribute to all my fur baby friends, I present another handsome photo of Schultz-y.
Look, folks, he signed his name and sent me an early Valentine’s greeting!
Schultz-y, you’re one smart doggie. If I lived near you, I’d wrap my paws around your furry neck and give you a great big lick. Then we’d have fun rolling around in those crunchy leaves.
Here’s more juicy stuff about Schultz-y:
Registered Name: Mickey Schultz von Banfyhaus
Cool name! You’re definitely a purebred. Maybe you’re even a baron.
Name & Nickname: Schultz
I like Schultz-y.
Date of Birth: September 11, 2010
Hey, you’re exactly 11 months older than me!
Breed: German Shepherd
I bet you’re a good guard dog.
Birth Weight: ??
What? Your mommy doesn’t know? Too bad. 🙁
Today’s Weight: 97 pounds
Hmm…97 divided by 8 equals…wow, you weigh 12.125 times more than me.
Interesting Tidbits: Schultz likes munching on ice cubes and chasing reflections. He also likes howling along with sirens.
I don’t munch on ice cubes, but I do love chasing reflections, and I howl whenever someone peels up our driveway.
So folks, now you can click through to read all about Schultz’s Wild Food Rampage.

Big sister, Emma and Diesel stole the dog’s bed for a nap. 🙂
For more cool stuff about Diesel, please keep reading.
Registered Name: He’s not a purebred so it’s just Diesel 🙂
Diesel, it’s okay that you’re not a purebred. I still like you.
Name & Nickname: Diesel (though Chris has taken to calling him Captain Insano because of how silly he gets when he’s playing)
My pop says I’m insane too because I tear up and down the furniture.
Date of birth: We don’t know his real date of birth, but our vet guesses it was around August 4th.
Breed: Domestic shorthair
Birth Weight: Less than a pound
Today’s Weight: 5.8 pounds and still growing
Diesel, you’ll have to gain a couple of pounds to catch up to me.
Interesting Tidbits: His favorite toy is a fuzzy purple octopus, and he loves playing tag in his cat tunnel with his “big sister” Emma (our three-year-old cat).
I don’t have a favorite toy. I steal Patches’ toys. I wish I could get him to play tag, but he growls at me.
If you haven’t already read today’s post, click through to get the rest of the scoop on Diesel.
And don’t forget to send in your submissions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yup, I read Mum’s emails. I’d love to place your fur baby in the limelight! 🙂
Until next time…Buff! (I don’t bark. Ever!)
