Welcome to

Megan Blake on Pet Life Radio


Welcome to A Super Smiley Adventure! 

In living with dogs, cats and horses, one thing I’ve learned is that if we are open to it, animals will lead us on amazing adventures! I believe animals can be healers and teachers, and with that in mind we explore every path of Pet Adventure we can find.

Whether it’s Smiley, my giant mutt, hiking across New England and inspiring an entire Flash Mob Campaign 4 Pet Adoption; Tout Suite The Travel Kitty traveling over 130,000 miles giving travel tips; or Starfire, our beautiful Arabian, leading me on inner journeys of self-discovery; my life with animals is always an adventure. Add the “happy chemicals” pets bring and a smiling dog and our show appeared!

Academy Award Nominees, Top Pet Experts, Stars for Animal Rescue and Innovative Thinkers are all on A Super Smiley Adventure.

Pets lower our blood pressure, lower our heart rates and increase our happy chemicals. We are their leaders, but if we can be open to see where they lead us, we all can begin our own Super Smiley Adventure. :)
