Dogs are called man’s best friend because they are unswervingly loyal and devoted to their owners, giving unconditional love and never letting you down. They have been working with us for centuries, as hunting dogs, ratters, sheepdogs and guard dogs to name but a few. In more recent times they have become indispensable as search and rescue dogs, drug sniffer dogs and assistance dogs. They are exceptional companions and will always brighten your day with their enthusiastic greetings. They deserve to be cared for and loved in return, and their needs are really very easily met.
Admit it: travelling with the whole family can sometimes be a pain. Even though you endlessly enjoy their company, carrying around bulky prams and coordinating your child’s every move can be exhausting work. Thankfully we have got out of the pram stage now, but there are times where I wish I still had it. Most cases with our family, we mean our little furry friends too, and there are times where you wonder whether or not you could bring your pet along.
I was recently contacted by Petplan, who had come up with a campaign to bring children’s dream horses to life. The idea being that your little one can draw their dream horse and Petplan will have it created into a toy. They will have their very own dream horse to take home and snuggle. I thought it was a great campaign and we learnt a lot about how Petplan helps horses and their owners.
SunLife asked several nursery school children to draw 9 celebrities, real people not cartoon characters, to bring a new kind of amusement to us parents. Can you guess the 9 celebrities from the children’s drawings? I have to be honest, I found it really difficult to guess some of them even though it is multiple choice.

It’s coming up to Christmas and I will never forget the campaign “a pet is not just for Christmas”, it got me thinking about what life is like with small children and pets – it really isn’t a decision to take lightly.
Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to tablets, SquareTrade, the global protection plan providers have revealed.

Paying for car insurance is an incredibly delicate situation for most people, mostly because the cost for premiums is so high. Young drivers are particularly vulnerable to paying a lot since insurance companies have lower confidence in their driving. Proving that you can obey traffic rules, know how to drive responsibly and prioritise safety through taking tests from websites like Top Tests is a start.
