Herman and Sophie by Janet Tobiassen Crosby DVM The US holiday of Thanksgiving will be here soon. Despite what the stores and advertisements say, it is a great time to pause, reflect, and... give thanks.

I think that any of us who live with pets would have "my pets" on the list of things they are grateful for, but what exactly are you thankful for regarding pets? Did your pet make it through an injury or illness? Provide comfort to a family member? Make you laugh? What is it about your pet(s) that you are most thankful for?

What I Am Thankful For
The question of what I am thankful for was posed to me recently. How to create an "attitude of gratitude" is important to me and my family. Here are the ways that my pets inspire gratitude -- how my pets get me to go out and exercise, laugh, and experience gratitude on a daily basis.
