It's Good to be Green

One of my favorite things about our annual Green Issue is highlighting local pet businesses that are taking action toward a healthier planet. After all, we each have a responsibility to care for the earth which sustains us and the animals we love, whether in our personal lives or business practice.

I am especially excited to feature our friends from Nashville Veterinary Specialists and Animal Emergency. You know them from our back cover, and you may know Dr. Trey Calfee as a leading orthopedic veterinary surgeon in Middle Tennessee.

Restraining Rover on the Road

The only thing my dog Dodger loves more than riding in the back of our SUV is leaping back and forth from the rear cargo area to the backseat. That type of system probably won’t land me on a top ten list for safe travelers, yet I was never bothered by Dodger’s acrobatics nor thought much about it—that is, until the birth of my son, Alex. The arrival of the baby in February brought Dodger’s free-wheeling road style to an abrupt end.  Although Dodger is fond of his new riding buddy, he hasn’t yet adjusted to the car seat I’ve unwittingly situated in the exact place he uses as a springboard.
