Cassie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cassie
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Home: Roswell, New Mexico, USA
 
   How Cassie became the member of the family was through adoption on the weekly "Pet of the Week" sponsored by the Humane Society televised on a local TV station.

    Cassie has several unique qualities in that she is very sociable, a good running companion, loyal, and silent (does not bark). On occasion she can put out a "howl" that can stand the hair on the back of your neck and feel that your in the deep wilderness. Cassie requires a lot of exercise, we go around the block for a walk at least two times a day, and run a couple of miles two to three times a week. Several times she goes by herself, and be back in 20 to 30 minutes. The neighbors enjoy having Cassie drop by for a quick pet or two and checking out how everybody is doing. The neighborhood kids enjoy her playful romps and actually have come up to the house and ask if Cassie can play. Presently, Cassie is trying to become certified as a Therapy Dog, in which she will visit retirement homes, and hospitals.
