‘Seamus’ Submitted by Michele Haney

Seamus is a 2-year-old male Havanese. The Havanese breed is the national dog of Cuba, so he is the picture of Joy FM's Dog Days Of Summer contest! As you can see in the picture, he loves to sunbathe on the deck in the summer. His favorite toy is his stuffed monkey. He carries him all around the house.

‘Daisy Mae’ Submitted by Robin Smith

Daisy Mae is a 9-week-old Yellow Lab. We just adopted her on July 4. She is our Fourth of July girl. Daisy Mae loves her new brother Wagner, who is a 3 1/2-year old Black Lab. Daisy does like to help herself to her brother’s toys. She has taken it upon herself to keep them all in her puppy crate, where big brother Wagner is unable to fit to take them back. Daisy Mae has discovered the pool. Her brother made sure to show her how it’s done, and she jumped right in.

‘Einstein’ Submitted by Matthew Musial

Einstein is a dog genius. He's a 2-year-old Maltipoo who enjoys physics and theories of relativity. He can even balance on his hind legs for a relatively long time. He's a lover of all man- and dogkind. Stein knows that smiles are contagious, so you'll never see him without one. Einstein plans to attend Harvard Medical School in the fall and hopes to find the cure to cancer.

Murphy (Submitted by Aimee Lepsch)

‘Murphy’ Submitted by Aimee Lepsch

Murphy is a liver and white English Springer Spaniel puppy who joined our family at the end of June. Even though he is only 10 weeks old, he is the smartest little stinker out there! Within days of coming home to Buffalo from Grove City, Penn., he had already learned "sit", "shake" (hands) and "down." He LOVES his rubber chicken toy, chasing his friend Jake (a Schnauzer/Westie mix) along the fence in the backyard, sniffing out the neighborhood on walks and crawling under the couch to nap. He makes us laugh with his puppy antics on a daily (hourly!) basis. Murphy is a true love bug. He is happiest when curled up on Mom's lap or Dad's chest, sitting under your Adirondack chair outside or plopped right on Mom's feet while she cooks. We're so happy and proud to have such a great pup join our young family. It's true what they say: "A home isn't complete without the patter of dog feet."

He is a 2-year-old Yorkshire Terrier. He loves belly rubs, going to grandma's house and his tennis ball that he can't quite fit in his mouth because he's too small, but that doesn't stop him from trying!

Woobie (Submitted by Vicki Leistner)

‘Woobie’ Submitted by Vicki Leistner

Woobie is a 4-year-old Shih Tzu mix that is very stubborn. His favorite toy is his stuffed rabbit that we call his baby. He lays on the floor for hours just sucking on it. As you can see by the picture, Woobie loves to get into trouble. This is what happens after he has a bath.
