After putting a call out for the College’s favorite pets and recipes last week, we received a number of four-legged favorites.
To kick off My Pet & Me, I bring you five of Ivy Tech Northeast’s sweetest and fuzziest.
First up, meet Mumford, a lion head rabbit. While Andy Bell, the engineering programs chair, admits Mumford is his daughter’s, he and his wife love the rabbit.
Jennifer Rambo, an adjunct faculty in accounting, wrote in about Pippa, her American Kennel Club champion Lhasa Apso. She calls the breed a forgotten one in the U.S., and it originated in Tibet.
“They were guards to the inner sanctuary of the monks and palaces,” Rambo wrote. “Loyal, independent, and smart! They have a heart of a lion.”
Kelli Kreider, agriculture program chair, introduces us to Pete, a Blue Heeler, and Oreo, a Ragdoll/Himalayan. Kreider is also pictured with her 9-month-old son, Kaden.
Finally, we have Delaney, an American Cocker Spaniel, with Patrick McCormick, the program chair for the College for Working Adults and the interim co-program chair for hospitality administration.
All Ivy Tech Northeast students and employees are invited to send in a photo of themselves with their pets for a possible feature in Green Light’s My Pet & Me! Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to include your pet’s name and breed, as well as your full name and major or title. Any other info about the photo would be appreciated.
