Wondering what your pet really wants for Christmas? I compiled the year’s best gear for Eugene Magazine’s winter 2011 issue.
This was one of my features for Eugene Magazine’s pet-themed issue. I asked people from exotic pet shops, Greenhill Humane Society, a local parrot rescue group and horse owners, among others, to find out what basic considerations people should give to certain type of animals that they might want to have.

Merle Weiner approached me at Eugene Magazine about us possibly chronicling her and her husband’s plans to build an eco-friendly home on a large piece of property overlooking the Lorane Valley.
