Rocket and Newton


I adopted my adorable rat terrier/beagle mix Rocket about 5 years ago and ever since then he has been a joy. He is doing wonderfully. He has been entered in three cutest pet contest and placed second each time! He even has his own Facebook page.

 About three years ago we added another family member. Newton is a guinea pig who we also adopted from the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. Newton is such a sweet heart! I love both of my pets. They are are so sweet and loving. They truly love their home
