Happy Birthday to us!!!
As all celebrations of milestones go, I often find myself reflecting on past decisions and how grateful I am to be where I am today. On this occasion, I had to wonder what my life would have been like if I decided to pursue a career in veterinary care or if I decided to open that pet shop I really wanted. I must giggle at the thought, because I am pretty sure we would have been flat broke due to my inability to separate myself from taking in more animals than I should. I would also have “tested” all the stock I had in a pet shop, rendering it impossible to sell anything, had I chosen that option. I love all things animal and I’m very grateful to be able to share the stories and products we feature with all of you without driving my household to the verge of insanity – well, for the most part.
So, on this wonderful occasion, I would like to share with you all our dapper-looking cover model, Jameson, who was photographed running on the beach in early January along with his wonderfully unique sibling, Sambuca. To read about these spoilt pooches and their incredibly compassionate mom, you can head on over to page 8. We also have a superb selection of products and travel suggestions in the Lifestyle pages, not forgetting the excellent advice given by our doctors on things like blood donation, reptile care and answers to questions asked by our readers.
Thank you for supporting us through another year!!
