Of all the pet experts on MSL-Radio, Tracie is by far my favorite. Her style, her knowledge, and the passion for her work drew me in to trust her and her message on pet wellness.
I was lucky enough to not only coordinate the event, which benefited Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue; but I met some great people from PETCO along the way. The real bonus was that I got to spend the entire day with Tracie as her guide and “advance man.” Here are a few photos from the event.
Tracie gave her presentation "You're Feeding Your Pet, WHAT?!" Afterward, she signed copies of her best-seilling books, "The Dog Bible" and "The Cat Bible."
Tracie signed numerous books. If you own a pet and have not yet read either book, you must order one and read it! It will change the way you look at your four-legged companion!
Representatives from natural pet food companies were on hand and wanted the opportunity to meet Tracie
Tracie with the rep from Natural Balance - one of the oldest companies that made GOOD pet food available to the public.

Expressive and passionate, Tracie shared the truth about commercial pet foods.

After the event, Tracie took a moment to pose for a picture with PETCO store managers Rachel and Pat. I was so fortunate to have such a supportive local store management team. They were so easy to work with and we had some good laughs along the way too!
Following the PETCO event, Tracie went to the Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue for a site visit. Tracie has been so supportive of FMAR and it was a great opportunity for her to see the operation up close and personal.
We were greeted by Amber, one of the shelter cats. She's adorable!
