Here at Simply Pets, we are a fam group of friends united in our passion for our pets, their happiness, comfort, health, and play time. We are always checking out the best-of-the-best in pet care. Since we love reading about cats, dogs, and every other type of footed, furry, flying or fishy friends to humankind, we decided that after 19 years of being on the Web as a one-stop-source for all things amazing for pets, to give our blog a new aesthetic. So the Simply Pets staff bloggers and occasional guest bloggers will be sharing our stories, our GOAT pet pics, our TD-for pet products, and whatever is on our v high key love list of the moment!
OUR BLOGGERS AND THEIR PETS:
Dan the man and his macho mutt
Dan and his multi-breed canine friend, Tucker “the trucker,” love to ditch work for the day and head out to the lake or to hike a mountain, (any mountain will do). When they are not sharing the latest catch of trout or playing catch with a Frisbee, you’ll find Tucker napping nearby as Dan updates the website with the latest product reviews of all-things-pets, tweaks the search engines, keeps us all moving forward, and writes his blog.
Zoe and his majesty, Grady the First
We met Zoe in Phoenix at the BlogPaws Conference in 2016 where she was lobbying for a last-minute ticket to the blog fest. Her Russian Blue, Grady, was a shelter kitty that she received as a Christmas gift from her mom when recovering for some months after being rear-ended at a stoplight in downtown Atlanta. Five years later Grady has grown from being a playful prince to his fat royal majesty, Grady the 1st, King of the Couch and Bedchamber. A few years later, Zoe adopted another shelter cat, Nemo, who is a great companion and playmate for Grady. Zoe is a cat-sitter and much to Grady’s disdain, a dog-walker to fund their daily needs while finishing a Master’s degree. When she is not attending to the cat-king’s needs for tummy scratches and paw rubs, she is blogging about cats.
Sheri and Jerry on the California Coast
You gotta love “The Sheri and Jerry Show” playing nightly after a long day’s work at the language institute where she teaches. Sheri is also our editor who loves those loooong summer days when the sun won’t go down till nearly 9:00, giving her time to go on neighborhood walks and have playtime in the baseball park with Jerry, her 8-year-old Dalmatian who quivers and dances with excitement at softest whisper of the word “walk.” Jerry is a special dog from the Dalmatian Heritage Project in Hayward CA, who breed healthy genes into award-winning line s of Dalmatians to eliminate urinary stones and deafness common to the breed. Jerry was the last of the 10th “J” litter adopted when he was 5 months old because of his non-traditional brown spots. When Sheri isn’t mothering the rest of us with advice, she’s buying all manner of merch and specialty dogfood for Jerry’s health and to delight his finicky gastronomic tastes.
