Your Pets on Green

A totally gratuitous pic of my pup, Basil. You might recognize him as the model in this pet-friendly post from awhile back.

No, I’m not talking about replacing Jackson’s face on the $20 bill with a picture of Mopsy (though that would be so cute, no?) but a great blog I happened upon called This Green Life.

In honor of Friday being national “Take Your Pet to Work Day” (see details about what that means here) I figured I would give This Green Life a shout-out.

It’s filled with pet news and information, from the latest on converting pet poop to methane gas, to homeopathy for cats, to how to deal with pet smellies naturally.

There’s only one problem: I’m sure one day I’ll come home to find my ‘blogging kitty’ Penelope, who offers editorial commentary while I write from the comfort of my lap, online and checking out the latest news. And then we’ll have to have a catfight over who gets to use the computer!
