Pizza, car rides, and other must-haves


Me: “What’s your favorite food?
Flipper: “Pizza, of course!”
Me: “What’s your favorite thing to do?”
Flipper: “Love going for car rides.”

If I would ask, that’s exactly how Flipper would answer those questions.
She feels all that, and more, it’s part of her inalienable Bill of Rights.

It’s a win/win
Dogs. Cats. Birds.
Our furry and feathered friends — their antics can be a source of endless entertainment.
(Or chagrin — like when Sunny “trimmed” my house plants.)
They are fun to have around. And, as shown by numerous studies, they help us lead healthier lives.
It’s a win/win situation.

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to meet people who taught me a lot about pet ownership.
Or, as some of them put it, they taught me about, “Pets’ Bill of Rights.”
Top three things I learned from them:

  1. Adopt. They are so many unwanted animals; adopting from a shelter is the best way to get a pet.
  2. Play time. Having a pet when you are hardly home it’s never a good idea. Being home alone for extended periods of time is not fair to anyone, including your pet.
  3. Food and safety — make sure you create a safe home environment. And provide nutritious food.

(Did you hear that Flipper? Pizza only on Sundays : )

Be kind to your pets — they are part of your family.
Treat them well.
Remember: your pets had no choice between you and freedom.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
