True, 2020 should have been the year I bought a new car, but that honour goes to 2019 when my faithful KIA Soul finally packed it in after 320,000 km of dog-friendly car trips across North America Likely, not a lot of people are looking at new cars right now (though financing is great), but […]
Need a great pet parent or dog lovers’ gift? Sock it. Even for yourself, or especially for yourself. (Get 20% off – see below). The eve of 2020, I made a weird New Year’s Resolution – no, it wasn’t to stay home for weeks with my dog and two cats but here we are. My […]
