Every evening when the Dogtrot Hill clan convenes in our living room old timer JoJo will lay and serenely lick our wacky black cat Kittoonski. It’s a weird scene and one that didn’t seem possible way back when Jo was a pup. Man, that dog was wild. But he grew up and matured into a wild oldster with a streak of gentleness that comes out from time to time.

Do your pets offer up interesting non-stereotypical behaviors too? I’d love to hear what there are. In the meantime here’s a depiction inspired Jo and Kittoon:
