National Pet Day 2016

Today is National Pet Day and as I read the lifestyle section of this morning’s newspaper, I came across  several articles quoting James Herriot as having said that “if having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” Reading those words brought back fond memories of reading Herriot’s books, including All Creatures Great and Small. James Herriot is the pen name of British veterinary surgeon Alf Wight, whose stories of caring for his animal patients exude joy in the everyday work of caring for his patients.

In caring for Coco and Henry, I am updating my mobile and cloud-based files for their most recent physical examinations and vaccinations. In the event a disaster caused us to leave home temporarily, I might be required to produce proof that the dogs’ vaccinations are up to date in order to bring them to a hotel with me. I keep all of that information on a mobile app, accessible on my smart phone. If your records are not up-to-date, National Pet Day is a timely reminder to attend to this task before the 2016 storm season begins. (And I include the graphic image in this blog post to announce the happy news that the Coco and Henry trademark is registered to Prisere LLC – perfect timing!)
