A word from the owner of PetsBlogs.com . . .
I love animals, always have. I’ve had pets around me for as long as I can remember. So did most of the relatives we’d visit when I was growing up. I was always drawn to them . . . grandpa’s dogs and ponies, grandma’s cats, an uncle’s rabbits, a neighbor’s horse, another neighbor’s bird . . . Nearly every picture of me as a child shows me holding or standing near an animal. The remarkable thing is that now, as an adult, I can still recall the names of those pets, though I have a hard time recalling the names of their owners. So what does that say about me? I’m a pet person, I was born that way.
As a little girl I dreamed of becoming a vet when I grew up. I think everyone who knew me just assumed I’d end up working with animals in some way. Then one day, during a 6th grade field trip to a local vet tech school, I discovered that I didn’t have the cookies for it. In fact, I tossed them up while watching a German Shepherd getting his teeth cleaned. I realized, standing next to the Coke machine sipping on the soda the teacher bought me to sooth my riled belly, that becoming a vet probably wasn’t in the cards for me. I remember it was a German Shepherd on the table. I don’t remember my teacher’s name.
While I didn’t become a vet (or a zoo curator, or any of the other animal-related professionals that seemed really, really cool as a kid) – I have had a lifetime surrounded by pets and they continue to be a huge part of my life.
