September 2021 issue
I am the eternal optimist when it comes to the changing of the seasons. Each season holds its own promises, and each brings with it a unique reason to celebrate. When I think of Spring, it’s a reminder that we get to start over. We get to celebrate the end of winter and the start of warmer weather. Birds are building nests and trees wake up from their winter slumber. Who doesn’t deserve a new beginning, right? It’s one of the pillars that our little Pet Prints community is built on, and we believe in second chances for everyone, especially for animals!
One person that is always a breath of fresh air and exudes enthusiasm is our cover model, Msizi James. This man is an icon of the radio waves and brings smiles to faces wherever he goes. We had a chat with him to find out what life is like as a new-found dog dad, how he got into radio and what the future holds for his family and his businesses. You can read all about this, and more, on page 8.
In this issue, we also tackle the important questions and guidelines to follow when adopting pets. We would all like to believe that all welfare is created equal, but it would be wise to educate yourself in making sure that you are fully aware of what you are signing up for. We summarise the most relevant questions to this discussion on page 16.
With Summer closely following this issue, we have some more travel destinations for you on page 34, with Brian Berkman and Julie, and make sure to not miss out on the gorgeous selection of items to be purchased on page 34.
I hope everyone is keeping healthy and helping those who are not as lucky. Please don’t hesitate to let us know how you’re handling these last few wintery weeks. We would love to hear from you!
Until next time!
In an effort to make sure that everyone can get their hands on a hard copy of our magazine, we have introduced our new direct mailing program. Please note that the charge for the magazine will be allocated to the postage cost of the magazine and not the magazine itself. Thank you for choosing Prints with a Purpose!
