Balanced food for your pup

ACANA Puppy & Junior Dog Food, 2.5kg, R175 and 13.5kg, R599

Compete and Balanced for medium breed puppies!

Mother nature evolved all puppies as carnivores and adapted them for a rich and varied diet of meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.

That’s why ACANA Puppy & Junior is loaded with human-grade meat ingredients (60%) including free-run chicken and whole eggs from Canadian prairie farms, and Pacific salmon from North Vancouver Island – all delivered fresh each day so they’re never frozen and use no preservatives.

High-protein and low-carbohydrate to match your puppy’s natural foods, this exceptional ACANA diet is free of wheat, corn and gluten (ingredients most often associated with digestive disorders in puppies).  Instead, ACANA features local fruits and vegetables plus steel-cut Alberta oats – healthful, low-glycemic carbohydrates that are rich in beta-glucans and ideally suited to your puppy’s sensitive stomach.

Fresh , never-frozen Pacific salmon is a superb source of unrendered omega-3 fatty acids (EPA, DHA) to support your puppy’s immunity as well as a luxuriant skin and hair coat.

Organic sea vegetables and prairie botanicals – including juniper berries and marshmallow root – supply natural-source antioxidants and phytonutrients to enhance metabolism and nourish the entire body.

Wedding season is nearly here!

i’m a mrs is an online name change service for brides.  It’s a web site that provides you with all the information you need to change your name with every organization you are associated with.  Everything - from your passport and driver’s license to your Clicks card and Discovery medical aid. It’s fast, easy, and has a team of local experts on hand to help you every step of the way. 

Standard package: R 299

Premium package: R 399

This is how it works:
If you’re anything like us birds, back in school days you doodled away many a maths class practising what your signature would look like if you married your favourite crush. Little did we know that once we really did have to change our names, it would make choosing venues look like a piece of cake. And let’s face it – once we’ve spent months agonising over guest lists, and whether it’s a good idea to seat the Book Club girls with his vulgar varsity buddies, who really wants to face more admin?

Not Michelle Farren-Handford. A newlywed herself, she realised the plight of the new bride who has to organise her clothing accounts, ID book, passport and other necessaries into her new name, and all the hassle that goes into finding the right forms to send to the right people at all the different organisations – so she set up a website to help.

We definitely say ‘I do’ to, where you’ll find a database of more than 800 companies, from retail outlets to municipalities and other government departments, as well as loyalty programmes. Michelle has done all the slog of finding the right forms for you, so all you have to do is click on the organisation, download the appropriate document, and send to the contact person mentioned on the site. It couldn’t be easier. (You’ll still have to queue at Home Affairs to make the changes, but with all the dogwork done, even this nasty task becomes a whole lot more palatable – and besides, with identity theft being a major issue in South Africa, would you really want someone else to do this for you?)
