The Daily Puppy – by Spunky

Maverick – J. Lauren, Bringing home the biscuits at

Meet Maverick. I saw his picture in my favorite newspaper – The Daily Puppy – just before I chewed up the Sports section. This newspaper has puppy news, videos and shopping for everything from puppy feed to doggie doors, plus other kinds of canine content, such as how to train your puppy.

You can vote for your favorite “daily puppy” by giving him or her a virtual dog biscuit, which counts as one vote.

Not surprisingly, Maverick had racked up 3,337 biscuit-votes at last check. Pretty much off-the-charts cute. It’ll probably go to his head. But the competition’s fierce. Other biscuit-vote hoarders include Buster the Beagle, Pickles the Dachshund, Barkley the Mixed Breed, and Casper, an exotic Alaskan Klee Kai with one eye that’s ice-blue and the other that’s chestnut brown.

Enough reading and blogging, though. Like many dogs, I prefer the print edition of The Daily Puppy, because printed newspapers are easier to eat than their online counterparts! Plus, my humans don’t like it if I drool on the keyboard. (Ssssometimesss it makes the “S”ss key ssstick.)

The biscuit-vote competition will continue among pups of all varieties. Those dogs are earning more biscuits than I can count on two paws. Even so, I still think that – pound for pound – Shelties almost always win paws-down for the title of “Cutest of Them All.”

Maverick’s humans say that his name suits his personality. I guess I’d give him a few biscuits, too, for looks and personality. But I think Jasmine and I are even cuter … and more personable. Plus we have our own dog blog. Take that to the biscuit-bank, Maverick!
