Some of the August Pets of Dalhousie (clockwise from upper left): Fitzhugh, Vester and Visby, Dolly and Percy, and Saylor.
It's safe to say we all know a lot more about each other's pets after eight months of reading about them on Pets of Dalhousie.
Now, as we begin to transition to a new fall term and start a gradual return to campus and our offices, the time has come to move on — at least for now. This probably isn't the last you'll hear about Pets of Dalhousie, though. (Anyone fancy a special Happy HOWL-o-ween edition? We sure do.)
Once again, the slate of special friends we've gotten to know in August has been delightful and charming. We've seen evidence that cats and dogs can play nicely, met a cat who'd just flown in from New Zealand and been introduced to Dal President Deep Saini's pooch.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted their pets and to all who've followed along this year. Fur-well for now!
