It was puppy day in the 100.5 The River studios this morning. 

Velma and her brother, Scooby Doo, part of a five-puppy litter and all named after characters in "Scooby Doo," came to visit.  I wish they could have stayed.Velma and Scooby are eight weeks old and are the sweetest puppies. 

While I say that all the time because I am a dog lover, they were especially loving.  Our entire staff wanted to hold them, and they probably still do.

Velma and Scooby are part pit bull and Shar Pei, with probably another breed mixed in. They need good homes.

So, if you're interested, contact the Humane Society of West Michigan at (616) 453-8900 or visit online at

Trudy Enders, the humane society's executive director, brought Velma and Scooby in. She said the society is looking for foster homes for the puppies.

The puppies need socialization, and they have foster families that do this, but as the puppy-and-kitten season begins, they could use more.  They provide training and food, so it is a no-cost program for the families.
