Letter from the Editor

Revue 7.19 cover

Pets are part of the community too — one drive around town on any warm, sunny day will make that perfectly clear.

In fact, I’m pretty sure there are just as many dogs in East Grand Rapids as people. At a certain point you have to ask: When do dogs deserve the right to vote?

Then again, maybe we shouldn’t expose them to that particular part of humanity. They’re too pure and innocent. Plus, they already have the life, especially in West Michigan. I mean, where else can a pup spend a beautiful summer day at the beach, safely running and swimming around with all kinds of other canines. We’re also blessed with plenty of dog parks that bring the entire community together — after all, dogs can’t drive themselves around (yet). 

Whether they’re cats, dogs, birds or anything else under the sun, there are a million ways to treat your pets. You just have to know where to look, which is what this issue is all about. We guide you to boutiques where you can buy clothes, toys and snacks for your cat, as well as dog-friendly patios and photographers who can capture those special moments forever.

This all might be a bit sad if you don’t already have a furry friend, but we want to help you get one responsibly, which is why we talked to Cathy Bissell about how and where to adopt.

To be quite honest, I technically don’t have any pets of my own, but I’ve grown extremely attached to my roommates’ cats, Hank and Luanne. They’re precious angels who light up my life and I can’t wait to adopt my own cat and dog one day. Until then, I’ll just have to browse the pet stores and stand on the edge of dog parks, admiring from afar.

’Til next time, 
Josh Veal, Managing Editor
