Thank Dog it’s our summer issue! Lucky and I both need to shed a few pounds-ok Lucky, a few ounces! In this issue we have shown you how to tone up and share time with your faithful companion by exercising with Joanne Thomas and her “Pet-Cer-Cise” article. If you need some motivation, read about the amazing humans who train with their pets, including three-time Olympic gold medalist Gail Devers! We high-tailed across the country to discover which beaches are dog friendly-with or without leash and with or without dog! I know Lucky loves to run on the beach, so it is another great way to exercise and spend time with your fur friends! John Lund’s infamous animal photographs are known to make people smile. You won’t want to miss his photographs in our summer issue, which have a fitness theme and are especially amusing!
Oscar award winner Halle Berry finds time in her busy schedule to tell us about her professional endeavors, her new renowned fondness for cats after filming Catwoman, and life with her two Malteses and new rescued cat, Play Dough. Snoop Dogg is changing his preference from friends who bark to those who meow. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s fancy for felines came through in her role in the upcoming film Garfield the Movie.
We celebrated Animal Fair’s 5th year anniversary and honored the 100th anniversary of the Humane Society at our Paws For Style canine fashion show. It was a very special night! Owners and their doggies attended in style and watched models and known personalities walk pooches down the catwalk, or “dogwalk.” The special surprise of the night was a song from the legendary Gloria Gaynor, who had the crowd on its feet! We want to take the time now to give a thank you to all of our readers, sponsors, advertisers, writers, photographers, Lucky, Pasha and all the amazing people doing amazing stuff with animals. Thank you all so much for helping Animal Fair achieve this amazing milestone!
WITH MUCH CATITUDE AND DOG BLESS EVERYONE!
