One month down (already), 11 to go. If you’re like me, you’re counting the months until Spring rather than to the end of the year. The days are already looking brighter!
Your subscriber offer this month gives you special savings through next month when you choose to try and continue using goat’s milk with your pet’s meals. There’s also a special deal this month on a trio of Honest Kitchen foods that includes enough coupon value to pay you back for trying the trio.
And on a completely unrelated note… a friend and colleague has written a book which can help avoid some common real estate traps. If you’re considering selling your home in the coming months and would be interested in a free copy, just let us know and we’ll include it with your next delivery. We’ve got just one copy to pass along, so don’t delay your request if interested.

Service Animals Under Scrutiny
You’ve likely seen them in grocery stores, malls, restaurants or even at airports. Dogs, cats, pigs, mini horses and even reptiles sporting a Service Animal vest or label while behaving… like a pet.
A new law making its way through the Washington State legislature would redefine an often liberally interpreted legal gray area. The proposed revision changes the term “Service Animal” to Service Dog” and specifies what tasks qualify to be legally recognized.
The proposed change results from a growing number of individuals slapping a commercially produced vest or label on their pet to gain entry to establishments that prohibit animals. The vast majority of these pets are companion, therapy or comfort animals, rather than true service animals.
The Federal Americans for Disability Act (ADA) allows accommodations in public spaces for individuals requiring the use of a service animal. Unfortunately, enough people have been abusing the law by claiming their pet is a service animal and becoming belligerent when questioned. Read more…
Free Goat’s Milk for the Asking
There’s been a bunch of buzz recently about fermented foods for people. Did you know that pets can benefit in much the same way from some fermented foods?
Fermentation is a simple, natural process which converts starch and sugars to natural, beneficial bacterias that bodies crave and utilize.
You’re likely already familiar with some common foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, and kombucha. All of these foods have been fermented and are packed with vitamins, enzymes, probiotics and more. Yum!
Fermentation offers similar benefits to our pets. One of the simplest ways to offer those benefits to pets is with fermented Goat’s Milk. Read more…
