To end the month on a sweet note, we figured it was fitting to feature Lola, the feline friend of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan. With a name like Lola one would have to expect a danty, sassy little thing. Well, Lola certainly doesn’t disappointment. She is a petite, white-pinkish hairless wonder. This spunky diva spends most of her days sleeping and trying to sneak eat her dog-brother’s food and spends her evenings playing, running around the house and chasing Jose in a hyper frenzy.

That isn’t to say Lola doesn’t have her sweet moments, says Megan. “Spending the first year of her life being neglicted, she was very standoffish and you could barely pick her up or hold her without her freaking out. But after rescueing her 5 years ago, we have really seen her grow and change with nurturing. With a lot snuggle time and patience, Lola has become super affectionate and loveable!”

Lola’s favorite hangout is the linen closet. “Anytime I barely leave it open, she manages to jump in there, curl up really small and fall into a deep sleep. So much so, that I have searched the neighborhood looking for her thinking she got out and all the while, she is snuggle up in the closet,” says Megan.

Meet Vinny, a Chihuahua/Dachshund /Pugg mix

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

There’s no denying it. We love our pets here at SJ Creations! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to devote our blog to our beloved canine companions and feline friends. We’ll share stories and photos of our four-legged sidekicks.

Oh, Vinny! With his colorful coat and curly tail, this little guy is easily one of the cutest SJ EmPAWees in San Diego! Despite Vinny’s penchant for lying on clean clothes and begging for food, this playful pup, the proud canine companion of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan, is notorious for being a total sweetheart — just ask his brother and sister, Jose and Lola!

Vinny was adopted from a shelter at the ripe age of 6 months. Megan’s husband, Craig went to the shelter, took one look at him, asked to picked him up and Vinny did his siganture move… he plunged his head right into Craig’s chest and nuzzled away. That was all it took. Craig adopted him on the spot. Kind of a risky move, but we couldn’t imagine life with out him. “I was lucky have Vinny as part of our family because of my husband. I often joke that Vinny was the main selling point for me marrying him!”

Vinny loves drinking coffee (like his mommy), playing with his squeeky toy giraffe, sleeping, and snuggling under bed covers. If you need any more reason to seriously fall for this handsome guy, here’s an all-too adorable fact: When you say, “Oh, Vinny you’re soooo shy!” He lies down and covers his face with his paws!

Meet Jose, a 7 year old Sphynx

With his exotic name and alien, old man like appearance, Jose never fails to make an impression. Sometimes weary guests often become over taken with joy after spending 5 minutes with this playful Sphynx. The feline friend of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan, was rescued from a breeder in New Mexico at the tender age of 6 months.

Even though this little guy lives the high life of sleeping, eating and playing all day, he has had his share of health problems. Emergency trips and overnight stays in the hospital, IV’s, cathiders, surgery… this little guy has seen it all. But fear not, Jose is a fighter! If he could pick up a pen, I bet he could write a best seller about how to NOT take his medicine.

Despite Jose’s hairless, wrinkly looks, he actually acts a lot like a playful dog. “He come when he’s called, snuggles with this dog-brother, Vinny, and when I say “up” he jumps into my arms,” says Megan. Other lovable quirks include an affinity for paper Whole Foods bags, bogarding all high sitting and sleeping areas, and snoring loudly while sleeping on his back with his legs in the air. Oh, Jose!

If you’re lucky enough to meet Jose in person, lean in close. “If you get close enough to him, he’ll bop his nose on yours for a kitty kiss!”
