“You aren’t a real mom unless you have children. You’ll never know what motherhood is like until you have a kid. You’ll be a great mom some day – you’re such a good pet mom!” These are things you should never say to a dedicated dog mom, especially when she doesn’t want children. They are offensive and disrespectful. Just because someone is female doesn’t mean she has to bear children…
Last night Matt and I decided we’d try something different for our Friday evening out. What better choice is there than to go to a dog event?! I can’t think of any either…so we made our way to Downtown Mesa, AZ for an event called Dog Daze. I had never heard of the event and I don’t spend any time in or near Downtown Mesa, so I thought it’d be fun!
Today I met my friend Kristen for the first time in person. Yes. It’s totally weird…like a creepy online relationship…but better! We met through the BlogPaws online pet blogging community. It’s funny because we’ve both been around BlogPaws for a while now but it wasn’t until I was in our local Ahwautkee Foothills newspaper this spring that we realized we lived close to each other.
I admit it. I’m horrible about brushing my dog’s teeth. I give them dental chews daily (and they have really healthy teeth!) but I know I need to get into a better routine of cleaning their teeth. The new Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush will get me started on that new routine!
