Cousins, Haylee, 4, and Gentry, 8, with Sparky,
a 3 month old Mexican Chihuahua.
Grammy Bonni enjoys taking her grandchildren, Haylee and Gentry, along with Haylee's new puppy, Sparky, to Fort Harrison Park to play.
Grammy sits on a picnic bench, while the children and Sparky run off their excess energy.
Sparky's name is a clear description of his energy level, and the fact that he is a live wire!
Sparky is every little girl's dream. Haylee had wanted a dog for a long time, and he arrived as a very special gift, on her fourth birthday.
They are inseparable, and play together. Haylee wraps Sparky up in a blanket, and pushes him around the doll stroller.
Haylee's mother Michelle, says, "Having a puppy is teaching Haylee responsibility, and how to care for others. She has learned that taking care of a puppy, is hard work, but she enjoys it.
Haylee makes sure Sparky always has clean water, and plenty of food. She is also vigilant that all her small toys are picked up, because Sparky enjoys chewing on everything.
This saves toys from damaged, and prevents the possibility that Sparky could choke on them, like the accident that happened to Oprah's dog, Gracie."
In the three short weeks that Haylee has had Sparky, her family took him along, on their camping trip to the mountains, and to see the beach.
Even though Sparky is tiny, his favorite thing to do is ... pack his water dish around the house.
Michelle's pet tip is, "Haylee loves Sparky, and wants to take him every where we go.
But with the warm weather, I explained to her, that within minutes, a car's interior can reach 120 degrees, even on a cloudy day, and pets die.
So, now she understands that we do not want to risk his life, and is happy to leave him safely at home."
Oregon Veterinary Medial Association suggests, "Don't leave your pet in the car on warm or hot days.
The temperature in your car can rise to over 120 degrees in a matter of minutes, even when the windows are rolled down.
Pets do not perspire; they cool themselves by panting.
The intense heat of a car can make them panic and pant even more.
Exposure to such high temperatures can lead to heatstroke, which can kill your pet."
