How pets and owners are both benefiting


JUST how are pets faring, in general, in these troubled times?

Domestical­ly, one seems to see a lot more dogs being walked at all different times while owners are affected in their own lives and many more pets have had more time with their owners, had more exercise and will be fitter.

Quite a few people have found themselves working at home and where pets are concerned must have made their existence more pleasant with the company.

I have also heard of some older folk unable or not allowed to go out, whose lives have been saved from boredom and loneliness by the company of a pet.

I think we can sum up by saying that the domestic pet has become even more a focal point in the lives of their owners and the owners in theirs.
