Gayle Martz poses with two of the wonderful canines who have accompanied her on her journey as she successfully continues to build the global revolution in Pet Travel she began in 1989. KARTU, in front, her beloved Shih Tzu. Next to Gayle’s heart is KIMBA, a Mi-Ki: a rare breed that shares common ancestors with the Papillon, the Maltese, and the Japanese Chin. The Best Big Girl, KARTU, my loving, Jet Setter, Shih Tzu is now 14 years old.
My very Best, Little Girl, KIMBA, had to leave us for Heaven on July 20, 2018. She was the JOY of my life and her Devotion and Love was a gift from God. I am so grateful for every second KIMBA and I shared together. The heartache and the pain of loving and losing her still makes me cry but I am so very, Very grateful to have had this 3lb Gift from God that was Everything I needed to help me do what I was meant To Do. Life is not easy, and nothing will ever replace the total unconditional love she gave to me. Now I know she is in heaven with SHERPA & SuNae, the dogs that helped me through the worse period of my life, and inspired a revolution in Pet Travel.
Anyone who lives with a dog and/or cat understands how they make us better humans. Someone once said “I want to be the person my dog thinks I am.” My new book, IT’S IN THE BAG, Pet Travel From Revolution to Evolution, will take you through my darkest days when I was an out-of-work flight attendant grieving over the recent death of my fiancé, one month before our wedding. Days after his death I was forced to vacate our home. After the tragedy I had the comforting unconditional love of the little Lhasa Apso, SHERPA.
I knew the difficulties in traveling with a pet. It was then I found my true purpose in life.
Being an experienced flight attendant, I knew the obstacles of taking your beloved animal companion with you in planes, trains and automobiles. With that realization the Sherpa Pet Trading Company was born. My commitment to accelerating the comfort and ease of travelling with pets took flight.
This book is about navigating the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship no matter what life throws at you. Having a loving dog or cat in your world can inspire you as profoundly as it did for me.
