    Things I’ve Learned About Myself: Confessions of a Dog Mom

    Hey there! If any of you out there have dogs, you know just what having a dog does to you.  It changes you in all sorts of ways that you probably never thought were possible.  I know it might sound silly to those of you who have actual human children but hear me out. Growing up, I never had a dog.  I never had any pets as a matter of fact.  So trust me when I say that I’ve been in your shoes.  I was the person that, whenever I would hear someone say something super sentimental or sappy about their dog, I’d roll my eyes and say, “it’s just…

    Hi guys! I mentioned in my Quarterly Goals post that as a fitness goal, I was going to start running more and the one thing I want to implement is training Chandler to be my running partner.  I’ve run with him a few times and he’s actually quite a good running buddy! So I wanted to get on today and share how you can train your dog to be your own personal running buddy too! [adToAppearHere] So to start, I wanted to equip you with a couple of warnings or things to consider before you decide to get your pup into running.  As much as exercise is great for dogs…
