Halo Gives Me Much To Be Thankful About
Every week I have the privilege of sharing some of my thoughts and interests about pets with the Halo audience. As we all try to take a moment to reflect on what we are thankful for at this time of the year, I continue to be amazed at how fortunate I am to have worked my way to having a seat at the table where the Bigger Thought Process about pets in our world takes place. My association with Halo Purely for Pets has helped reinforce my own instinctive choice to align myself always with the highest quality, most ethical causes and companies. The Halo company never veers off its declared course: to use impeccable ingredients in their foods, to always tell the truth, and to use their marketing and messaging energy and time on behalf of less fortunate pets in shelters – through Freekibble.com. I am proud of my association with such a good-hearted company, and inspired to know that success can come from never wavering in what you believe in and care about.
Advice from Joan Baez
I am reminded of simple advice I received many, many years ago when I was interviewing Joan Baez for a featured piece I wrote for the Sunday Los Angeles Times Calender section, comparing women in the film business (who were powerless) to women in the music business (who had more control of their work and lives). When I told Joan Baez how much I was impressed by her consistent morality in her work and life, and as a young woman how I hoped I could follow her example, she said it was simple: “Never do anything or associate with anything you would have to apologize for.”
Serving Goodness in the Bowl, Goodness in the Shelter World
We can all be thankful for individuals and companies like Halo that set a good example for us in our professional and even personal lives. For a perspective on the other side of the coin, take a moment to listen to my NPR radio show DOG TALK® this week, that will be podcast December 2nd on my Radio Pet Lady Network in which I have a philosophical discussion with a pet food industry veteran about what has happened to many previously excellent pet food brands when they quietly sold out to the bigger food companies. Be thankful that Halo is there for us and our pets, serving up goodness in the bowl, and goodness in the shelter world.
