Where do I find the results for the photo contest?
I am horrified, and very disappointed, that you published a photo (page 13) showing a dog with a dog seatbelt attached to its collar. Under no circumstances should a seatbelt be attached that way. The only safe way to use a dog seatbelt (and my dog is attached to his seatbelt 100% of the time when we're in the car) is for the seatbelt to be attached to a ring on a harness on the dogs back. You really need to pay attention to these advertiser photos, etc. I suggest that you also print a correction/apology in a future issue.
Happy National Puppy Day from Cleo!
It's such a pleasure to be excepted here. I wanted to share an interview I did with media personality, Mandy Gill. She really loves her two furry friends and when depression turned her life upside down she turned to her canine heartbeats to bring her frown to an ultimate rainbow reaching for the clouds. I had so much fun during my meeting with her and I hope you will enjoy how dogs can give us so much love and happiness. Please enjoy my little documentary and give your furry friend a hug from me.
