We’ve all experienced the loss of a loved one, be it a family pet or mother, father, grandparent, etc. I think the interesting piece here is the mention that while grieving for loss of family of friends is widely seen as socially acceptable, grieving for the loss of a pet is not nearly as accepted, … Continue reading A pet’s death can hurt more than losing a fellow human
An interesting study for sure! The title of the article is a bit click-baity, but that shouldn’t stop you from reading.

(Source : National … Continue reading Therapy Dogs Work Miracles. But Do They Like Their Jobs?
For years, this poor dog was treated like less than trash. Purely based off his appearance. This woman has given Beaux a chance when no one else would. And we couldn’t be happier for this outcome.

Great news for this 26 year young cat! Here’s to a comfy, stable home!! It's awesome to see that this cat is given another opportunity to have a loving home.
