Treat Pets to a Safe Halloween

By Thursday, October 30, 2014

Witches, bats and scaredy-cats need not apply. We’re planning a safe, fun and non-frightening Halloween here at Pet Living!

When deciding whether to scare up some Halloween fun for your pet, the most important thing to consider is whether they’re a willing participant in the festivities. And of course, always keep their safety first in mind.
We have a special treat for you coming Friday—our Halloween Pet Parade on the Daytime morning show!

3 Ways the Future is Bright for Pets and People

By Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Pet lovers, I wish you could have been there.

They were an unlikely pack of visionaries. A “mutt-ley” crew, you might say. Scientists, beat boxers, veterinarians, musicians, an oncologist, pet experts, filmmakers—all coming together to share their love for pets and discuss discoveries that promise a better future for pets and people together.

Two weeks ago, I scored a “by invitation only” spot at the Better With Pets Summit for journalists and influencers in the pet industry. The Summit is the brainchild of Purina and it brings together leading scientists, innovators and pet experts to demonstrate how innovation is enhancing our relationships with pets.

5 Ways Pets Help Us Thrive, with Arianna Huffington

It’s not everyday I get to meet a media mogul—let alone one who loves animals and values their contributions to our lives.

So, I was over the moon excited when I was granted an interview with Huffington Post founder, and member of Forbes’ “Most Powerful Women” list, Arianna Huffington about her new book, Thrive, The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.

In her New York Times best-selling book, Ms. Huffington shares the moment she realized that our current definition of success is inadequate. What’s missing, she explains, is “The Third Metric” – a measure of success that goes beyond the two metrics of money and power. The Third Metric consists of “four pillars,” including well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.
