Happy New Year from The Pet Show!

Happy New Year, Pet Show Peeps!!! 2012 was the start of a great ride here at NewsChannel 8 for all of us here on the show, and we've had such an incredible time making an informative show with a fun twist to it for all of you!

Thank you so much for all of your support, and we look forward to hearing from you what we can do better and what you want to learn about in the future! Email us your questions, suggestions, or just say "Hi" to us at!

On this week's show, we're following up with "Chip" McFly (and of course Dad Tommy McFly) as we finish out Chip's time on the Fresh Fit Challenge!

Chip is looking FANTASTIC; you don't want to miss the transformation! Courtney Groome from FreshPet joins us to talk about Chip's nutritional plan going forward, and Christian Cunnane from Fetch! PetCare gives Chip his 'assignments' going forward! Check out his full report right here:

Next up, we've got the newest anchor on Good Morning Washington - Scott Thuman - and his gorgeous pup "Olive!" Scott's waking us all up with a smile every morning here on ABC7, and Olive is his partner in crime.

A longtime pet advocate and "Humane Hero Award" recipient from the Washington Humane Society, Scott approaches life as a pet owner with a sense of humor and humility that you'll definitely enjoy!

You'll get to see Dr. Katy's premiere as an animal health "reporter" on ABC7 as well and learn about a product that you've likely got in your pantry that has been healing animals and people for thousands of years!

Finally, Stacey Holliday, Veterinary Assistant at the Washington Animal Rescue League Medical Center, tells us about how WARL can help care for pets owned by D.C. residents facing financial challenges. Plus, you won't want to miss her stories of dramatic pet rescues that WARL has been involved in over the past year. They do some great things over there at WARL!

Looking forward to a great show! Tell us what you think!
