If you need some light in your life we have the solution.  Stark is our SPARKY Pet of the week and this guy is seeking a fun-loving family to call home.

Stark is a two-year-old lab/retriever mix. Stark is a very sweet boy but sometimes can play rough. Stark will need someone who can understand his behaviors and also someone who understands his energy level. He likes to play bite and nibble and sometimes can get into it with other dogs due to his playfulness and excited state.

He needs a family who is active. If the family has another dog, a meeting with that other dog will be required. It is best for the other dog to be laid back and not be alpha.

Stark could probably benefit from an obedience class. He is very smart and loves to play. Stark is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations.

Reid's Orchard Adds Their Own Petting Zoo To The Farm

Reid's Orchard is one of our family's favorite places to just go and hang out whether we're picking apples or playing in Reidland. I recently visited and they had some cute new furry faces.

Owensboro Cat Think's He's A Person FOR REAL!

Let's be honest you're either a cat person or you're not. Cats are fickle and funny but we found an Owensboro cat who thinks he's a person. We think you'll love him.
