No limits purr customer

What has a fascinating allure, eyes filled with wonder and a svelte figure, moves like a panther, purrs like a Harley and grows more beautiful and affectionate with age and just happens to lives in the county?
Your Next Best Friend: Rogen

Hey, apologies for us RAWL dogs not getting our advertisements written for the last two weeks. It’s not like there weren’t any candidates — me, for instance. I’m Rogen, a rather grand 3-year-old Old English bulldog mix.
Your Next Best Friend: Pudgy

My name is Pudgy and I’m a 10-month-old bulldog mix, several breeds all squished into a compact little love bug . . . me! I love other dogs and cats, too, and, of course, humans.
The view from the pooch

On the deck at his Flint Hill home, Bobby the dog takes a moment to appreciate the setting sun bursting out between summer storm clouds and the Blue Ridge.
Your Next Best Friend: Hannah

“Hannah Baby is a honey of a girl . . . .” I love the Rolling Stones and this is from an old song of theirs called “Memory Hotel.” I won’t go into that. Anyway, the RAWL staff describe me…
Your Next Best Friend: Sophia

When Bailey met Terry

Gov. Terry McAuliffe, right, visiting the recently expanded Carfax headquarters in Centreville last week, gets down with Rappahannock resident (and Carfax CEO) Dick Raines — and Bailey, the Theatre dog.
Your Next Best Friend: Bailey

Fun is my middle name. I’m a 5-month-old foxhound girl. I love everything and everyone I come into contact with — people, other dogs, cats, toys, even the occasional butterfly.
Your Next Best Friend: Lindsay

My name is Lindsay and the RAWL people think I might be mostly Brittany Spaniel or maybe King Charles (or Queen Charlotte, in my case). But I’m really not high-falutin’ enough to be of royal lineage.
Your Next Best Friend: Jordan

Good morning! My name’s Jordan and I’m 45 pounds of handsome, if I do say so myself. I’m a Heinz 57 type of dog breed, made up of all sorts of dogs.
