We all look forward to the New Year and the practice of making promises to ourselves to hopefully better our lives in one or more ways. Those are noble goals, indeed! But even more noble and gracious would be to honor our beloved pets by committing to those New Year’s resolutions that will help to guarantee their health and well-being, as well. Let’s look at some of the ways we can do so:
Ah, the beginning of another year, time to reflect and make resolutions. If you’re looking for suggestions, how about sitting down for family dinners?
