The “Cutest Pet of the Month” has been a popular regular feature of the Trenton Trib virtually since the newspaper’s inception. The previous four years we have offered our readers the chance to select the Cutest Pet of the Year via Facebook. This year we used paper ballots and an email voting system. Of the 12 contenders, one received the most email and paper ballot votes for 2017.
Marley Bob, a 3-year-old standard poodle, is the family pet of Nicole, Essen, Hayden and Kaeli Davis of Trenton. He received his Pet of the Year goodies in December at the Trib offices that included bones, squeaky toys, doggie treats and a flashing star hat. He performed his best tricks for the staff which were, “Bang Bang” where his mom Nicole says “Bang Bang” and he falls to the ground and rolls over and he also can say, “YES” when asked if he would like a treat.
Marley’s favorite foods are anything humans eat, and apple treats. His favorite toy happens to be a cheeseburger. He is a very calm and attentive poodle. He also knows his place in the family, usually right next to someone, curled up and content.
