Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I want to wish a wonderful day to all the moms out there either through biology, or adoption, or if you’re a step-mom, or even if you’ve got a deadbeat sibling who has run off to Nevada to “find themselves” and left you a niece and a half empty bag of …

Science Proves Dogs And Humans Are Earth’s OTP (One True Pairing)

Once again, science proves something that people already know. Dog people, anyway. A study published in the journal Science proved that dogs respond to both the words their people say and the tone.

Anyone who loves dogs has probably spent a fair amount of time with their faces stuffed into their dog’s fluffy, soft fur. It’s one of our favorite things to do. I mean, here’s this creature who wants nothing more than to love us, and he’s like a warm, cuddly teddy bear who sometimes chases squirrels …

9 Reasons to Like Your Dogs More Than Your Kids

A lot of things have changed for me over the years, going from a corporate ladder-climber to a writer/stay-at-home mom has been a big one. My love for cheap booze has been replaced by wine or a well mixed Beergarita. Sensible flats now sit on racks where stripper heels used to be and yoga pants take the spot that formerly held …
