 As the first dawn of 2011 stirs, so too do thoughts of new year’s resolutions, goals and ambitions. We’ve decided to hit this new year running, sort of like these fellows, with wild enthusiasm and unstoppable determination!  We have a lot in store to make our second year even better than the first and continue to strive for excellence when it comes to reporting important and inspiring pet information. Our New Year’s wish and goal? To make this magazine the best it can be for you, our lovely readers, while also working to help even more pets who are in need of loving, happy homes. With your continued support and encouragement we can make this wish a reality! So with open arms we welcome the year 2011! Happy New Year one and all!
