A Super Smiley Adventure with Megan Blake - Pets & Animals on Pet Life Radio (PetLifeRadio.com)
Summary: Welcome to A Super Smiley Adventure! In living with dogs, cats and horses, one thing I’ve learned is that if we are open to it, animals will lead us on amazing adventures. Whether it’s Super Smiley, my giant mutt, hiking and camping across New England and inspiring an entire Flash Mob Dance Campaign; Tout Suite The Travel Kitty traveling with me to Pet Friendly Resorts; or Starfire, our beautiful Arabian, leading me on inner journeys of self-discovery; my life with animals is always an adventure. Add the “happy chemicals” pets bring and a smiling dog, and voila, our show appeared. On our podcast, we explore travel destinations, inner journeys and any path of pet adventure we can find. Pets lower our blood pressure, lower our heart rates and increase our happy chemicals. We are their leaders, but if we can open to see where they lead us, we will begin our own Super Smiley Adventures. :)
