Name: Pedro Godzilla Rochford

Owner: Lauren Rochford, www.authorstalker.tumblr.com

Favorite activity: Chasing his tail, cuddling, roo roo-ing

Item they have destroyed: One time we came home to find he knocked over the garbage can and spread garbage all over the floor. He was standing in the middle of it proudly. We had to buy a pet-proof garbage can.

Ways they brighten your work/life: I never have to take walks alone! He's always ready to play.

If they could speak, they would say: "I am not little and cute! Respect me."
