Thinking of taking your fur baby on a vacation or extended road trip with you? Being on the road with Holly Elizabeth has made me realize it can be the most fun thing in the world to take your best friend everywhere you go — but it’s also not without its stress. So often, I see people toting around their dogs like they are accessories — and not realizing, or not paying attention to, the fact that dogs are pack animals, that value a strong leader, and also have needs and wants of their own.

I am a cat person. Of course, not in the way that I don’t like dogs, because I LOVE dogs, but in the way that cats might need a special kind of person to really understand them: someone who is a little more patient with mood swings and knows how to be gentle, someone who likes to cuddle during cat naps but also totally understands when you need some alone time. Admittedly, yes, I am that person. I love all cats, and if they don’t want to be my friend when I meet them, I’d just about die trying to change their mind.

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” – James Herriot

For pet owners all over the world, the words of James Herriot ring inevitably true. It is often hard to find a human to match the ultimate love and loyalty of your furry friends, solely because of their simplistic and unconditional efforts to always be there for you. Not to say that there aren’t plenty of fantastic human beings out there, it is just that we have developed this special relationship with our pets: a pure bond that can somehow silence all evil. Dogs aren’t labeled as mans best friend for nothing!

What does it mean to “live healthy”? If you ask some folks it is “diet” for others it is “exercise” and for many it is a combination of those two — with varying levels of rigor.

There was always something so special about seeing the sweet innocence of so many adorable pets just waiting to be loved.
