Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye

Last night, I was sitting on my couch playing with my dogs just like any other night. Even though Miles is 70 lbs and almost as tall as I am (that doesn't take much), he's young and he still thinks he's a little puppy, and he likes to stretch out in my lap while I… Continue reading Playing With Dogs: It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets A Black Eye

And your husband has to work that Saturday so you're… Continue reading Dog Mom Life: Diarrhea Everywhere

I absolutely love shows about fucked up people engaging in all kinds of debauchery, so naturally I love the show Shameless on Showtime. I’ve been watching since day 1, rooting for strong Fiona and just hoping Frank manages to not irreparably damage too many people each episode.

Self-Employed Life: My Dogs Are Clingy Stalkers (Good Thing They’re Cute)

I used to be a pretty hardcore hustler in the sales world when I was single. I sold cars, commercial pest control, office supplies, and cable/internet packages like they were going out of style throughout the years. When we first adopted our dogs, I was still going to an office every day and it was… Continue reading Self-Employed Life: My Dogs Are Clingy Stalkers (Good Thing They’re Cute)
