A previous dog training client turned friend, Kathleen, has always half-jokingly offered to take Romeo if anything happens to my husband or I. She is truly IN-LOVE with him.

We believe show segments such as Ms. Swansons emphasizes for the general public the need and importance of including ones pets in their estate planning and selecting a companion animal pet guardian.
The fact that some people fail to do so or even care to does not mean most companion animal caregivers do not make plans. To assist in their efforts, there are many resources available and more being put in place on a regular basis that are easily accessed by any interested party through the internet, existing literature and eventually through ones attorney.
There are many more questions raised when planning for companion animals that bear discussion and sometimes there are no easy answers, but doing nothing is not a good route to choose. There is also the need to plan not only on death but for incapacity.
We hope as that as many people as possible will be encouraged by these shows and comments to deal with this type of planning for both their companion animals and families rather than leave it to others and the courts when they no longer can.
