Portia Stewart is a pun-loving editor who spends her days arguing the differences between cats and commas (commas are a pause at the end of a clause, while cats have the claws at the end of the paws). She is a minion to two cats and a dog.

Watching a pet's lifetime-from cradle to grave-is a privilege pet owners and veterinary professionals share. It's an indelible bond forged from puppy visits to geriatric exams to that final, sacred goodbye when euthanasia is needed. And a group of special golden retriever owners and veterinarians are taking this journey together. Their purpose? To further scientific research and understanding in order to protect one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States.
