Technology is a cool thing. We pretty much can use our phones for anything. We can shop, read, get directions, take pictures, and so much more. Many of us even use our smartphones or tablets to organize our lives. We use apps for recipe ideas, making list, shopping, and even banking. I know quite a few people who use their smartphones to help manage their fitness and healthy lifestyle. Technology has came a long way. I am almost 100% positive at this point, we’d be lost without it.
We love to download apps for us. But, what about our other family members? I’m not talking about for our children or spouses. We consider them our children, our pets.
