Getting to know Aminah Gallie and her pack
Looking and feeling your best demands an active lifestyle and a balanced diet. The same
goes for your canine companion, just ask beauty blogger and animal lover, Aminah Gallie.
This month we sat down with Aminah for a Q & A session to get to know our newest brand
ambassador and her pack a little better.
F+F: Welcome to the team! It’s great to have you on board. We’re looking forward to
finding out more about you and your four-legged companions. How many dogs are in “your
pack”, and what are their names?
AG: It’s fantastic to be part of the Field + Forest™ team. Our pack loves the fact that your grain free, signature recipes are Guided by Nature™! We have seven amazing dogs named: Mia, Hope, Max, Zach, Mia, and Savannah. You read correctly; we do indeed have two Mias in our pack, which is a very happy coincidence.
F+F: How did you choose their names and is there any special meaning behind any of them?
AG: We adopted all of our dogs and decided to keep their given names, with the exception of Hope. We adopted her when she was a few weeks old and hadn’t been named yet as she was part of a bad back-yard breeding situation. We named her Hope, for the hope we wish to see restored in the lives of all less fortunate pets.
F+F: Which of your dogs’ unique personality traits stand out the most, and which do you find the most endearing?
AG: Each of my dogs is so different from one another. I love it when their affectionate sides
shine through, from laying on my lap to unexpected kisses; it makes my heart
F+F: What inspired you to get your first pet?
AG: I’ve always been a big animal lover. I grew up with dogs and, being an only child,
considered my dogs as siblings. When I moved out of my parents’ home, I decided
it was time to adopt and give some less fortunate dogs a good dose of love and a safe space to live.
F+F: What do you and your dogs do to stay in shape? Living in Cape Town, we’re sure there’s
a lot on offer, but is there a favourite activity that you enjoy sharing with them?
AG: We have a set routine. Life can get busy juggling a toddler and a career, so it’s
evening jogs with my dogs, as well as Sunday park adventures. This my therapeutic space to
keep my mind and body in shape, as well as those of my pets.
F+F: Do they have a favourite Field + Forest™ recipe?
AG: Mia and Savanah love the Field + Forest Turkey + Duck Recipe but we definitely
want to try the Salmon + Tuna.
F+F: What do they love most about Field + Forest ™?
AG: Mia loves the shape and the size of the kibble, being on the older side, she appreciates that it’s easy to chew and digest. Savannah loves the taste so when she sees her food she goes to town on it!
F+F: What inspired your journey into blogging?
AG: When I started blogging five years ago, I was extremely shy, but I had always loved writing. Gradually I began using my blogging platform as a creative outlet to engage with like-minded, creative people.
F+F: Lastly, we have to ask… What’s the best way to clean pet hair off of your treasured
AG: This hack was introduced by my mom, and it’s such a lifesaver: Take one of those yellow, rubber kitchen-cleaning gloves and simply stroke the hair off your fashion pieces, it works like a charm, and it’s a super affordable solution.
