Furry Tails: Lamb Chop & Froggy

Does your pet have a favorite toy? Something he or she carries around the house, plays fetch with, maybe uses as a pillow. It’s probably slobber soaked and smells something awful, but you’d never dream of trying to pry it from the paws of your furry friend.

Furry Tails: Cat Tails – Max

My not so little ball of fur came into our lives about seven years ago. My wife and I were still living in New Jersey, when we found a small white cat on our porch. We took care of the cat briefly until its owners were located. That brief experience sparked a conversation about getting a cat of our own and we set out to find a furry companion.

Furry Tails: Grieving Rosie

Loss. Losing a loved one. Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to deal with. Drowning in grief and getting harder and harder to come up for air.

Furry Tails: “Pet”rified

Weather Winners, Pittsburgh? Tales From A Former Weatherman

After spending ten years in the KDKA-TV weather department, seven as evening anchor, a decade ago, I am still constantly reminded how personally I took the job.
