Where to start? From humble beginnings, the Jimbo's brand created the natural pet food industry in supermarkets around NZ. We started it off as an offering of meat minced into a plastic bag that stores would weigh, price and sell at store level. Fast-forward 20 years and we are now part of the weekly shop for pet food. Cats and dogs all over NZ are living long, happy, healthy lives on Jimbo's - and it's only getting better.
It’s the season of contentment in my house at present. Deep in the dark depths of rural outer Auckland there is a warm glow that spreads itself through the lounge room and on through the rest of the house. When that warm glow starts to spread it’s like watching a new winter Olympic sport; “Synchronized Sleeping”. There is always jostling for a spot in front of the fire, bodies outstretched, and legs askew as the beasts and peoples line up for prime position.
Gidday. Pretty exciting week this week folks, this Friday is official Take Your Dog To Work Day and we are going to celebrate. Being a pet-friendly workplace as we are, there are regular canine visitors cruising through the office and it has a positive effect on the day for all the peoples.
It was a funny month just gone in my house. As a family, there is my wife, my two daughters and myself, and of course the animals.
Ono the cat, as I have described previously, doesn’t particularly like the dog so generally only comes inside in the evenings and sleeps on the bed. She will take attention from anyone and loves to smooch but is equally happy just to curl up on the foot of the bed. She is pretty cruisy and not too demanding.
