Local Cutest Pets:
Butterball from Sarasota
Butterball is a tiny and sweet natured 22.5″ dwarf miniature horse that loves to work as a therapy horse and travels to nursing homes, hospitals, schools, daycares and fundraising events. Butterball is house trained and loves coming in the house to watch TV and eat her favorite treats which are Frosted Mini Wheats and Ritz Crackers. Butterball lives in Florida with several other therapy trained miniatures along with her owners, Danielle & Judy Cunningham, a mother/daughter team who own and operate the program “The Therapy Angels”, a wonderful program dedicated to training and promoting therapy trained miniature horses.
If you would like for Butterball to make an appearance at your event or gathering, please call 614-370-7669 or visit her website at butterballpony.com.
Murphy from Bradenton
Murphy is part Standard Poodle and Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier obtained from Petland in Bradenton, the day after Christmas, at three months old, as a present to myself. As a request from God that is exactly what I asked for in hopes of training him to be a service dog to me. I am doing the basic training myself for as far as I am able until he can go to ‘Paws for People’ in North Carolina.
