Mommy/Miles Time

My first dog Miles has always been a bit clingy, and I can’t blame the poor guy. He was found wandering the streets of Wilmington hungry, neglected and possibly traumatized by having his tail cut off (although we sincerely hope he has a stubby tail naturally because we don’t condone animal abuse). He was in… Continue reading Mommy/Miles Time

Crackers, Rainy Days, And Finger Painting

I love the rain and always have. There’s something inherently soothing about listening to rain and going out for a walk when it’s coming down, as long as it’s not pouring so hard you’ll get drenched in a couple minutes. When I was a much younger girl (about 7-8 from my vague recollection), I loved… Continue reading Crackers, Rainy Days, And Finger Painting

Pets Should Count As Dependents For Tax Purposes

One thing that frustrates me about being a dog mom is that my fur kids invoke a lot of expenses but they’re not considered dependents for tax purposes. I feel like this is just another way for the government to discriminate against those of us who choose not to procreate.

It seems to have forgotten that it had a hard drive or an operating system, which really sucks for someone who… Continue reading National Dog Day? How About National Dog Parents Day?

Dog Mom Life: I Have Two Males Fighting Over Me Constantly

Being a dog mom has been quite the learning experience. Before I got married and adopted our dogs, I hadn’t had a pet since I lived with my parents (a long time ago in a state far far away). I always loved dogs and wanted to adopt one when I was single, but I worked… Continue reading Dog Mom Life: I Have Two Males Fighting Over Me Constantly

If I Acted Like My Dog Crackers, I’d Get My Ass Kicked All The Time

My little rat terrier mix Crackers has a serious Napoleon complex. He’s only 17 lbs, less than a third the size of my other dog, Miles. Because of his size (or lack of it), he has a very defensive attitude and acts like an asshole sometimes (an ADOWABLE asshole, but an asshole nonetheless). While Miles… Continue reading If I Acted Like My Dog Crackers, I’d Get My Ass Kicked All The Time
