So while I’d like to think that I’m a fairly sociable fellow, I’m also the kind of guy who goes to parties, discovers that there’s a dog or cat present, and prefers to hang out with the pets instead of the people at said party. I’m just that kind of guy.

And do you blame me? Are you no different? I mean… just LOOK at that pitbull and its sad blue eyes! How can you ignore that cat shamelessly begging for belly rubs? Are you just going to walk past that chocolate lab trying to follow you? No, you won’t, because pets are sacred and you’re not a monster. And here’s a brilliant segue welcoming you to the 2018 Pets issue!

Seeing as how our furry friends are as much a part of the family as humans are, it takes a lot to make sure that they’re happy and properly cared for. In this issue, we meet two Minneapolis-based dog walking companies: Lofty Dogs, founded by the delightful Mike Meyer; and Come, Sit, Stay, an ever-diverse crew of dog care experts. We also learn about the good work done by the no-kill Feline Rescue organization.

On top of that, Carla Waldemar takes us on a trip to the capital of the Great White North, we take a sneak peek at the Duluth Superior Pride festivities, and we chat with the fine folks at Washburn-McReavy about funeral preplanning.

So if you’re like me and are devoted to all those doggos and kittehs in your life, this Pets issue is right up your alley. But just remember: I get first dibs on petting the animals at the party. Back off.
