Introducing Sarah Argue, Chicago Pet Photo & Video’s Social Media Coordinator
Sarah’s love for pets stems from the ripe young age of 4 when she got her first pony (it wasn’t that perfect, pretty little white one with a long flowy mane or tail either – but it was a pony). Dogs, cats, a rabbit and 4 more horses added to that herd throughout the course of her life. Don’t ask how she went from living on 10 luscious, green acres of land in Pure Michigan to an apartment with no animals and just a patch of grass 5 feet from her doorstep, but she did. Fortunately, working with Chicago Pet Video has given her the opportunity to continue showing the love and passion she has for her four-legged friends.
Pet’s name and age: Zoey, 5
Breed: The prettiest mutt you ever did see! Thinking a Collie or Sheltie mix of some sort?
Three words to describe your pet: Whiner, lover, snuggler
What stood out to you when picking them from the liter? Or if you rescued, why them among the rest? I rescued Zoey when she was around 2 years old. I had originally adopted a pitbull mix – that ended up turning a bit sour. I unfortunately had to take him back to ASPCA but shortly after, my eyes landed on little Miss Pretty aka Zoey. As disheveled as she looked, there was a softness in her eye that immediately caught my attention. As soon as I put my fingers inside her crate to pet her she literally reached out with her own paw and clutched my hand. Just when I thought that was love at first sight, we took her out for a walk and within 2 minutes she was on the ground, rolled over, belly in the air, just waiting for a belly rub – which she’s infamous for now.
Most unique trait: Best listener (in the midst of a squirrel chase halfway across the yard, she stops and turns around on a dime at the yell of her name)
Ideal day: If Zoey had her way every day (which she does) she’d spend it out chasing bunnies and rodents in the fields at my mom’s house and then end it cuddled up next to me on my pillow, ready for bed.
Biggest guilty pleasure: A good belly rub, until she falls asleep.
Worst habit: Rolling and eating in our horse’s poop. Every day.
Best trick: Zoey doesn’t do tricks, never has never will.
Favorite outfit: Her Michigan State Bandana.
All time favorite thing about your pet: Her endless love for me, she never leaves my side.
