My favorite Tuesday Morning department: Pets!

A little about me: I love animals! My husband, John Bigley, and I share our home with two large mixed-breed dogs, Irie and Tiki, and four cats — Linus, Lucky, Inca, and Coco. I’ve been a pet lover my entire life, but six years ago, the adoption of our dogs inspired me to change careers. Previously, John and I had been travel guidebook writers, but Irie and Tiki motivated us to find a way to stay home more and incorporate our love of pets into our careers. We launched DogTipper.com, followed by CatTipper.com, to help fellow pet lovers make the most of their lives with their pets even if their budget’s on a short leash. Soon I became a certified dog trainer, and there’s been no looking back. This past year, we combined our love of travel and our love for pets into our first pet travel guidebook.

What I love to write about: I love to write about ways pet lovers can incorporate their pets into their lives, whether that’s traveling with them, enriching their lives with training and play, or even cooking for them. Every day our dogs and cats teach me new lessons!
