Sheriff Paco wins in a landslide!
■ Mary Ann Morris / Editor
After receiving numerous votes for The Valley Chronicle’s Cutest Pet Contest, we have a clear winner. Sheriff Paco, owned by Joe and Susan Chavez of Hemet, won by a landslide, receiving 93 percent of the votes.
Paco has won a holiday-themed dog bowl and toy emblazoned with the image of Bumble the abominable snowman from Rankin/Bass’ animated holiday classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
Paco came in with his owners to get their prize, take a few pictures, and share Paco’s story.
Paco was born on March 29, 2009, and Joe and Susan adopted him from the Hemet PetSmart. His favorite pastimes include posing for photos (he has his own monthly calendar!), going for walks around his neighborhood, eating, and playing with his toys, including his favorite, a chirping blue jay. He likes being around people and other animals, playing with Mom and Dad, Grandma and Uncle Fred. The best part of his personality is making his family laugh and smile.
