Home Fun Times Staff Pets at Black Hills ParentBlack Hills Parent Magazine·November 3, 2015Fun Times Meet the Staff Pets at Black Hills Parent! These are the loveable little guys we get to call family each and every day. Rick DenHerder Cooper is like a canine stress ball. He offers up his paw and lets you rub it until your stress is gone. Lisa DenHerder Tucker is a good and faithful friend. He waits for me and then follows me wherever I go. Jim Wilber Bella wishes that she were a lap dog. She loves her family, but she also loves treats so she stays on the floor! Caitlin Beyer Sadie likes to eat baby carrots and baby bunnies. It’s her idea of a balanced lifestyle. Jordynn Schmautz Leo and Meeko are my entertainment, excitement, and a huge part of my family. I love them to pieces! John Edwards Millie has all the classic Basset characteristics–selective hearing and the ability to take up 90% of a king size bed–despite only being three feet long. John Eining All three of my pets are wild, crazy, and act like a pack. Ryan Hall My kitty is new, the dog is old…super old. So, it makes for an interesting mix! Chris Valencia Sheldon: Our ball-hoarding, gentle giant. Cathy Chmielewski Rocky and Snickers are the perfect remedy to a hectic day. As soon as I walk in the door, they’re waiting there with a rawhide and a smile! Kristen Begeman Both pups have the mind of a hunter, but the heart of children…often playful and sometimes mischievous. Kayla + David Schmalz From neighborhood cat to family, Luec has become one of our favorite little visitors. Jenna Carda GusGus can’t contain himself when treats are involved. He starts jumping around like a little piece of popcorn!
