Editors Letters

Featured: Face to Furry Face

It never fails. During my conversations with people in the pet industry—be it a retailer, distributor or manufacturer—at some point the question “So do you have any pets?” always pops up. That’s when the cell phones come out, smiles appear and the discussion gets lively. Whether they enter our life via a breeder, shelter, family […]

A Mother’s Influence

Mother’s Day this year is May 14, and it’s a holiday that means much to me. My mother was a guiding force in my life, especially when it came to pets. Although she passed away in 2015, my mother is often on my mind, and I reminisce about her through a variety of mementos that […] Read More →

C’mon Get Slappy!

It’s slap-ya-mama good!” So many unique aspects attracted me to Pet Age last year, and even more have compelled me not to regret my decision to come on board. One aspect in particular made an immediate and lasting impression on me: The wide divergence of people and cultures one encounters in the pet industry. Last […] Read More →

Change is Good

Glance Back, Move Forward

When I was presented with the mission of writing a retrospective of the past 45 years of the pet industry, I initially found it to be a daunting task. As I studied the history of this wonderfully diverse field, reflecting the progress of education and technology, it’s impossible to ignore how much we have changed […] Read More →

Always in Vogue

This being the winter holiday season, it was easy for assistant editor Colleen Murphy to find content for the Pet Age cover story on the pet industry’s passion for fashion (p. 12). Clothing has become a very popular trend among pet owners, especially for consumers who own a dog. According to the 2015-2016 APPA National […] Read More →

Delivering Diversity

As I perused the contents of the November issue for a theme to inspire my first Editor’s Note since joining Pet Age, I realized that I was unable to limit myself to a single subject. There are too many exciting topics packed into this issue to examine just one in my Editor’s Letter. Take the […] Read More →
