'PERK' MEETS 'DEXTER'--But "Dexter," the seven-week-old pet pig, seems somewhat disdainful and ignores the apparent friendliness of "Perk," week-old pet kid, who is happily snuggled in the arms of his little mistress, Beverley Stierle (left), of 1029 Woodbridge Blvd. Much interested in her pet's piggish antics is Julia Ross (right), of 616 W. Madison St. The girls, Bach school pupils, entered "Perk" and "Dexter" in the Bach school pet show which boasted 10 animal species. Mrs. Florence Hiscock was the teacher in charge.

Guard Of Awe-nor: With the kindly ugliness of English bulldogs, "Tubby" stands guard over Steven Miller, the seven-month-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Miller of 215 N. Ingalls St. You can't tell it from here, but "Tubby" is also protecting two-year-old Christian Miller who--the News photographer insists--is fast and enviably asleep at Steven's feet.

Tom The Turkey Chases A Visitor On The Strieter Farm, November 1974

Being a turkey is hard work these days. You have to be constantly on the lookout for strangers bearing axes and guns, who are saving a place for you on their Thanksgiving table. Thats why Tom, a pet turkey at Arwin (Bud) Strieter's farm, wasn't taking any chances. When he saw hunter Ron Knecht of Ann Arbor moseying around the barnyard, he attacked. Knecht, who had never been attacked by a turkey before, fled quickly - a little too quickly. He tripped over the dog and wound up flat on his back. The turkey was declared the winner. Incidentally, Tom really didn't have much to worry about. He'll enjoy his status as family pet for many Thanksgivings to come.
