Happy Pets, Happy Mind… Happy Pet Photos!

By now you’ve had a chance to get a copy of our Fall 2014 issue – and had a chance to see the adorable puppy photos with the article “Happy Pets, Happy Mind”. Because we can’t get enough of the cuteness, we asked a few of our staff members to share photos of their furry – and scaly – best friends. We dare you to not say, “awww!”
