THAT’S what I’m talking about!

Jennifer McCammon with BroadwayPutting this edition together was exciting and fun. It was interesting to note the changing complexion from last year’s Top Dogs — many new pet-friendly favorites appear in numerous categories this year. Please scan the lineup and get acquainted. These folks are the Best in the Biz, and you’ll be glad you found them!

When you call on one or some of these pros, please let them know you found them in the Top Dog directory — they’ll appreciate it! The Top Dog directory has its own cover, so it’s built to pull apart. After you’ve perused your customary January Spot just tear off the outside section and toss your Top Dog directory in the murphy drawer so it’s there when you need it, all year long. 

Attention Cover Models

We’d planned to feature our winning Cover Model this month, along with an inside spread of all the beauties who entered Spot’s Cover Model Search in April. The holiday shuffle necessitated a change, so please look for the models in February, our annual issue that’s all about love. 

On that note, Spot/Monaco Mutt Mixers return First Thursday February 4, when art therapist Enid Traisman of DoveLewis will lead us in a charming pawprint craft perfect for your valentine, plus special guests — a pet psychic, a love/life coach — just right for the theme. 

This year is starting off with a >BANG!< Thank you so much for your support, your friendship, your ideas and your input, always. Cheers! Here’s to a wonderful oh-ten together!
