• Research shows a link between pets and happiness, with health too. Pets can lower blood pressure, decrease stress, lower cholesterol levels, even increase survival rates for those with cardiac problems. And of course, they’re great company.

    Many programs now connect people with senior pets. Although kittens and puppies are cute, they aren’t necessarily a great choice. Not only can adopting a senior animal save it’s life, but the pet can be a better fit. Mature cats and dogs are easier to handle; they usually have calmer temperaments. Many older dogs are already well trained, eliminating the need to spend large amounts of time and patience on things like housebreaking. With a young animal, you often can’t tell the pet’s size and personality until it is full-grown – fewer unwelcome surprises with a mature pet! These cats and dogs really need a loving home. Some shelters reduce or waive the adoption fee if you adopt an older pet.

    As a designer and entrepreneur, products for women have always been my focus. In my first company DianneSullivan Designs, I designed and made fun jewelry for young women to buy in boutiques and department stores. That company transitioned into Miraflores Designs which designed and supplied custom designed soap, shampoo and other toiletries for hotel chains including Hyatt, Sheraton and many others. After selling that company, my next company, Bay Linens, Inc, designed decorative bedding which was sold through Bloomingdales, Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers. Our home decor products, with the brand, China Seas, was sold at Isetan Department stores in Japan. At this stage of life I'm connecting with other women over 50 who want to examine their interests and to connect with each other. At ZestNow.com I want to gather useful information and inspiration for this new phase of life.
