-- It's a dog and cat race, as a calendar full of pets vie to be pet of the year in the Houston Tanglewood/River Oaks Buzz magazine pet competition. A dog named Buddy (February's entry) and a pair of gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel pups (December) named Buddy and Layla are in the lead among the 12-pet pack. The voting is fierce, and after just a few days, total votes cast are close to 500.
Everyone is encouraged to vote. Just go to this web site and select your favorite.
Not many dogs have their own PR firm, but Buddy and Layla, half brother and sister, are the exception. Following in the best tradition of Lassie, Marley, Rin Tin Tin, Old Yeller, and others, Buddy & Layla hope to make it big, beginning with becoming known as the sweetest (and cutest) dogs in their part of Houston.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are known primarily for the sweetness of their disposition and their royal heritage in the courts of England. They are often used as therapy dogs because they are so loving and gentle.
According to their owner, "Buddy and Layla are clearly the best of the bunch and, while they're a bit behind the other Buddy now, should be able to catch up easily. I do hope everyone who sees this takes a moment to go to the web site and vote. I won't tell you to vote for Buddy & Layla, but if that's the decision you arrive at, you've made the right choice."
