Happy Gotcha Day To Mr. Miles!

Two years ago today, I became a dog mom. My now-husband and I were engaged, planning our wedding (well, I was planning the wedding anyway), and we decided that we wanted to adopt a pup. We saw Miles' picture in a Craigslist ad posted by a local rescue and loved him at first sight. According… Continue reading Happy Gotcha Day To Mr. Miles!

Happy National Dog Moms Day!

My now-husband and I… Continue reading Adventures with Miles the 70-lb Jacked Russell

Crackers And The Battle Of The Sweater

My 20-lb rat terrier mix Crackers can be the sweetest little pup in the world when he wants to be. He can also be a major asshole when he wants to be. When my husband and I adopted him, we thought we had this dog parenting thing figured out thanks to Miles the Jacked Russell.… Continue reading Crackers And The Battle Of The Sweater
