We started “Ask PJ” as an advice column; sort of like “Dear Abby.” It was very clear to us that we needed a column that answered our readers’ questions in a way that we couldn’t in a traditional article. In April 2006 “Ask PJ” was born.
This is where you can ask the tough questions and get real life answers. PJ Pettus, a self proclaimed expert on everything, has nothing but real life experience (and some solid research) behind the answers you’ll get to your most pressing questions. PJ will, if nothing else, tell it like it is.
This is a forum for you to ask ANYTHING at all – nothing is off limits (as long as it’s family-friendly – no obscenities, please).
Start asking those pressing questions and enjoy.
Email questions to email@example.com or write PJ c/o Paw Prints The Magazine, P.O. Box 140164, Kansas City, MO 64114

I am new to Missouri and looking for a groomer, I’d very much like to know if the state requires dog groomers to be graduates of an accredited school or to have state license to operate. Where I am [...]
The cat we took in as a stray (and couldn’t find a home for) turned up pregnant in short order, of course, and gave birth to a boy and a girl (that we also couldn’t find homes for). So now we have three cats, two of which are siblings that are just several months [...]
My husband and I have been dog owners in the past, but have not had one since our children were born. Our two boys are 3 yrs. and 1 yr. old and we’re now considering getting a family dog (either a Lab or a German shepherd, in case that matters). We want our older son to be able to help with and appreciate the dog. What is the best age for kids to start helping in the responsibility of a dog?
I think I overheard someone from Paw Prints tell someone at an event that they put their dogs’ dishes in the dishwasher along with the people dishes. I’m sorry, but that just grosses me out. Remind me never to accept a dinner invitation from anyone over there!
We recently boarded our dog while we were on vacation, and when we picked her up she was sick with kennel cough. I was pretty upset. Other than using a different kennel, can you suggest ways to prevent this from happening again? Oh, by the way, can humans catch kennel cough?
A friend passed along the ridiculous information your magazine published that it’s not possible for a cat to survive on a no-meat diet. You should know that those of us who are against animal suffering have figured out ways for our pets to eat as we do.
Instead of parroting the party line of the animal-exploitation industry, why don’t you tell the truth?
