The winner of the 2nd annual Denton Record-Chronicle’s Cats & Dogs And Other Pets, Too Contest is Lyle Campbell of Decatur. The DRC staff managed to steal a few minutes of Mr. Campbell’s time before he emBARKed on his whirlwind celebratory tour. DRC: Mr. Campbell, would it be all right if we just called you Lyle for the rest of the interview? Lyle: “Actually, my full name is SIR Lyle Campbell, but you can just call me Lyle for short. Mom wanted something prestigious and solid, just like me! She calls me the classiest little man in the world.”

DRC: We have just a few questions before you sprint off to visit the throngs of your adoring fans. Could you just tell us a little bit about yourself? Lyle: “Sure thing…I turned three on February 4th. I love to play and give kisses. I think I’m a pretty sweet and caring guy as well...and maybe just a little bit sneaky. Sneaky is kind of strong, though. I’ll just settle on clever, how is that? I’ve figured out how to get into the candy that Mom keeps. I like to hide it in special places and then give it to her when she gets home. And, just between the two of us? I like to hide some for me under the couch where I keep all my toys and chews.”

DRC: Are you a morning dog, Lyle? Lyle: “Yip! After Mom wakes me up, I like to share the love and give some kisses. But after that, I’ll settle back down and sleep in for a while. A dog needs his beauty rest. I take it easy during the day, ‘cause when Mom gets home, I just can’t help it. Full body wiggles are just the way I roll!”

roll in stinky stuff! Heaven on earth, I tell ya! I love my cat toy, too. You heard right, a cat toy. It’s just as long as I am and it even meows. I also love the movies ‘Elf’ and ‘Star Wars’. I’m thinking of studying acting after my tour…I dressed up as a sheriff for Halloween and I was the law on this side of town!”

DRC: Talk to us about some of your favorite things… Lyle: “I love cheese. It’s absolutely my favorite. I love my cousins, Buddy, Zoe, Pookie, Graham and Tiger…and I love to visit my grandparents house in Decatur, where I can run around in the woods and

DRC: Can we pet you goodbye? Lyle: “Be my guest, just don’t pull on my ears. I might nibble on your fingers a little bit if you do. Here…let me roll over on my back so you can rub my belly. That’s what my mom does for the best dog in the world!”

Sady, a Cats & Dogs and Other Pets, Too contest runner-up, is a Sheltie of few words. She is a very private pup, and had to be coerced to share a few words with our staff. Named for a great-aunt of her owners, Sady celebrates her birthday on February 16th, which is the same birthday as her people mom! Sady listed her favorite hobbies and pastimes as “Sparkles and Shadows”. We weren’t sure if those were special friends or partners in crime, but

when Sady talked about her favorite memory, we found out for sure. “My favorite memory is chasing a sparkle inside from the sunshine outside!” A self-described “kind of neurotic” dog, we sensed a pattern with Sady when we found out she is very talented at going in circles with a flashlight. Sady opened up a bit with a few more questions. DRC: How do you like to spend your evenings:


Sady: “I like spending all my time with my owners. I love being wherever they are. They tell me I’m as smart as I am beautiful. I love them and I’m a very loyal girl. But, I do love my outside critter friends too, like squirrels and fast lizards. And, if I have one of those rawhide swirl treats…I’m good to go!”

DRC: Do you have a favorite movie? Sady: “Lassie. Duh. She looks like me.” Jenny Froh Photography

Cheeto was adopted when he was two years old- a fluffy little orange furball full of spunk and energy. Coming up with a name for the new kitty was not so easy. Nothing seemed to fit, until his dad said that he looked a little like a puffy cheeto…and that was that! Cheeto celebrates his birthday on Valentine’s Day, which his mom says is very appropriate. “She tells me I am the most loving cat she has ever met,” says Cheeto. “Let me tell you a little bit about me. I’m not tooting my own horn or anything, but people tell me I’m the sweetest cat they know. I wouldn’t hurt a fly, unless it was a fly…’cause I’m an avid bug hunter by nature. I’m pretty darn good at it, too. Sometimes moths get in our house, and oooohhh boy. That’s a doozy-of-a-time. I love to chase

them and catch them. After I’m all pooped out, I’m either drinking water from the sink or sitting on my dad’s lap. Throw in some TUNA and I am a happy kitty!”

loud noises. I think people called him a dog or something. Anyway, we were best friends. He taught me how to bark. I’m not kidding. I only do it on special occasions.”

Here are some short Q&A’s from the rest of our interview with Cheeto: DRC: Any special people or animals you’d like to spend some time with? Cheeto: “Do you know who Purrfect the Cat is? She’s Cee-Lo’s Persian kitty on ‘The Voice.’ I’d love to meet her and watch Aristocats. I follow her on Twitter.”

DRC: Favorite vacation spot? Cheeto: “Last summer my parents and I went on a trip around the world and visited Egypt. I’d been doing some family tree research in my spare time…apparently I have roots in Egypt. Who would have guessed?”

DRC: What’s your favorite memory growing up? Cheeto: “I used to live with a friend named Kingsley. He had big, round eyes, a long nose and floppy ears. He used to make really

DRC: Any favorite movies? Cheeto: “A Bug’s Life. Great behind-the-scenes look at bugs, my ultimate foe! Hey, this interview is over…did you bring any tuna with you?”
