Pet Gazette Changes Hands but Labor of Love Continues

Dedicated to our Buddy Dog Spice!

Dedicated to our Buddy Dog Spice!

With this month’s issue, I am privileged to take over the reins of The Pet Gazette. The magazine will continue to serve the south shore and Cape Cod. A longtime community and regional news hound, I have published and edited several weekly newspapers in Massachusetts since 1986 including, most recently, The Provincetown Banner and Cape Cod Magazine.

 

Last month, following a period of due diligence, I acquired the assets of The Pet Gazette from Josh Cutler, who has been at the helm of this impressive magazine since July of 2006 and is now turning his many talents in a more political direction with a run for state representative.

I’ve long been a fan and avid reader  of the Pet Gazette. I support everything it stands for especially its strong advocacy for the rights of pets and pet-owners. Now I get a chance to direct a publication whose passion and advocacy for animals I embrace.

When Josh took over the reins of the Pet Gazette from Kathy Lynch who founded the publication in 1997, he called her work a “labor of love.” For nearly six years, Josh has continued this “labor of love.” And it shows!

Entering its 16th year of service to the pet community, The Pet Gazette in print and on the Internet (epetgazette.net) will remain the same Pet Gazette you know and love with the same columnists and contributors as well as a new wrinkle or two.

I hope to meet the standards that Josh and Kathy established, publishing a first-class magazine devoted to people who love their pets, the pets they love and the supportive pet community. I share their passion for pets and journalism.

I remember the day I adopted a young and nervous little golden retriever from the Buddy Dog Humane Society in Sudbury, MA where I published several weekly newspapers, and the Buddy Dog quarterly magazine. The staff at Buddy Dog named  this cute pup, Spice, for the spice color of his coat. Spice and my 10-year-old son John Jr. were inseparable buddies for years!

I’ll never forget the day I walked  into my son’s room unannounced to find him with his arm around  Spice and their eyes locked. “I wish you could talk!” said John in a pleading fashion. Without a blink, Spice cocked his head,  stared at John quizzically and  licked his face vigorously. Maybe he couldn’t talk, but he sure could communicate!

I hope to capture the pure joy of Spice’s communication through the pages of The Pet Gazette in print and on the Internet (epetgazette.net). Thank you for reading and supporting The Pet Gazette. Under new ownership, you can rest assured that The Pet Gazette will continue as a “labor of love.”
