Anyone who has a pet knows just what a brilliant impact they can make on your daily life. April is National Pet Month, so we thought we’d share with you our favourite ways a pet can make our lives more awesome. It also gave us a great excuse to look through some gorgeous pet photos. Cue a dip in productivity levels here in the CEWE Photoworld office!

2016 marks the 27th year of National Pet Month, which aims to raise awareness on being a responsible pet owner, with a focus this year on overall pet care such as grooming, vet visits and ensuring your pet is getting the right nutrition. After all, a pet is for life, so we need to ensure they’re well cared for and in return they’re bound to repay us in love!
