Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Our pet profiles series celebrates those supportive (and adorable) friends who round out the homes of notable members of the Dallas community.

Names: Nine (he's the ninth family pet) is a two-(and a half)-year-old male Bullmastiff and Punch is a five-year-old male Chiweenie. Nine came from a farm and Punch is from the girls' cousin. Owners: Vynsie and Jully Law (owners of We Are 1976) Likes: Nine enjoys eating carrots, sleeping, Vynsie's cat Wednesday (they sleep side-by-side) and going to Downtown Dog. Punch likes plastic water bottles and his wolf doll. Dislikes: Nine doesn't like when people pet the top of his head. Also, he hates eye drops. Punch dislikes guys with sunglasses and beards, and any delivery person.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
