Morning – Pet Connection

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Miss Sophia

Believe me, she'll keep you busy all on her own.

You might think it’s less fun to have one dog than two. Miss Sophia is here to prove you wrong. The year-and-a-half-old husky-shepherd mix came in to Homeward Animal Shelter by way of the pound, and in to the KVRR Morning Show studios via Homeward’s Heather Klefstad. And she was more fun than a barrel of monkeys the whole morning….

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Grandpa

Dispensing dog wisdom with a side of cuddles.

What could be better than having a grandpa or grandma? Why, bringing home an extra one, of course. Grandpa the boxer has been around for awhile. He’s 10 this year, which puts him squarely in senior status. And he has a lot of wisdom to share, as you can hear in his live appearance on the Morning Show with Emily…

PET CONNECTION: Meet Henery

Henery is a great, lovable bird for a family

  Our friends at C.A.A.R.E. brought us a bright bird, both literally and figuratively. Henery is a 9-year-old Jenday Conrue. He is a cuddly, affectionate guy who loves his skritches.

Due to shelter overcrowding there, she was shipped up north to the Red River Valley, and she’s…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Audi

A cat of many contradictions.

As a matter of fact, he spent most of his live appearance wailing inconsolably in Emily Welker’s arms, trying to hide his pretty face from the camera. As it turns out, it’s the first in a long line of examples of why Audi’s a cat of…
