the truth about pet parties

From doggy weddings to birthday parties to dress-up Halloween events, parties for pets are on the rise. My view is simple: when having fun with our pets like this, we just need to remember to see it all from their perspective. Pets are animals, and they don’t realise what is going on. By all means include them, but make sure that they don’t get unduly stressed, don’t offer them food or drink that isn’t safe, and don’t over-indulge them.
