Jodey, Cubbie and Maddie are December’s Pets of the Month, with their festive attire.
The three are ladies about 10 years old and are part of a “blended family,” with Jodey and Cubbie coming from their mom, Sloane Hunter, and Maddie coming with her dad, Rick Hunter. They live in Madeira Beach and have all been a family for five years, as of Nov. 27.
Jodey, a westie terrier, likes to be boss and treated like a princess. She gets jealous if one of her sisters gets more attention than she thinks she is getting.
Cubbie, a cairn terrier, thinks she is a hunter and spends the day searching for bugs and lizards. She likes to always be petted and will give a little bark when the petting stop.
Maddie, a Jack Russell terrier, likes to be the center of attention and will run to drop a baseball on your lap, just in case you feel like playing catch. She was born on Christmas, and she loves ripping through all the wrapping paper. Sadly, her parents have just learned that she has cancer. Saying goodbye will be difficult, but Sloane said that she and her husband are proud pet owners and encourage others to do something nice for their pets or donate time or money to help needy animals.
As Tampa Bay Newspapers' featured pets for December, the girls win a $25 gift certificate to Largo Feed and Garden Supply, either in Largo or Pinellas Park.
