Have you considered what would happen to your animals if you were suddenly hospitalized due to the coronavirus (or for any reason, really)? What if you died suddenly?

I’m taking a minute of editorial privilege during this extraordinary time to encourage you to help others where you can. Here’s what’s in front of my house right now. I’m not doing it for compliments. I’m doing it because there are people in my community in need, and it makes me feel better to do SOMETHING when my family has been so fortunate.

I’ve contacted a few pet stores and Chewy.com to see if I can add some pet food to my inventory.

Please consider helping out, either by setting up your own little grocery or by sending a contribution to me via PayPal to [email protected] so I can keep this going.

Thanks!

Stay home and stay safe.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
