I swear, all I talk about are how much I love podcasts. I get so excited when a new episode appears; it’s like Christmas, but everyday! If you haven’t read My Favorite Dog Walking Podcasts, Part I, I suggest you head over there first! For the listener who STILL can’t get enough of anything Bachelor/Bachelorette related… OFF THE VINE, with Kaitlyn BristoweI don’t know what’s in past contestant’s wine glasses (or cocktails), but it seems every bachelor/bachelorette/adjacent show’s alum has a podcast. Why?! To talk about how much you cried on Bachelor in Paradise and now you can cry some more now that you found your love and can put Crate and Barrel on your wedding registry? I especially don’t need this guy on my feed. But, I can’t resist one alum’s endless chatter – Kaitlyn Bristowe. I loved her on Chris Soules’ season and as The Bachelorette, and for…

Forget the stupid cards, the boxes of chocolate, the overpriced flowers, and any other dumb marketing that makes you feel less than because you may not have a significant other. Instead of thinking about this day only honoring those who have a boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/whatever, think about it has a day to realize all the people that love you unconditionally, everyday of your life. Your best friend, your grandmother, your favorite aunt. Maybe your sister. How about your coworkers who make work bearable everyday? Or even better, your DOG! The one who licks your face any chance they get, who keeps bothering you every 15 minutes to throw the ball. Who takes up half your bed even though they’re only 20 pounds. Don’t have a dog? Maybe you have a cat, or a frog, or a lizard. Doesn’t matter. These animals love you unconditionally, no matter your relationship status. So today, here…

Happy Thursday, dog lovers! Today, we’re going to feature gifts for one of my favorite breeds: The Boxer. From their short snouts, pointy ears, and to small tails and extremely short fur, they look like the Boston Terrier’s cousin, only much taller and 60 pounds heavier! According to AKC Kennel Club, they are great dogs for children, and take their role as a guard dog very seriously. It’s important they are exposed to a lot of people and other animals in their puppy stage, so they are properly socialized. Boxer T-Shirt, $19.99.

Store all the essentials in this adorable pouch. The different expressions and poses of these boxers will make you smile every time you open your purse. Boxer Art Print,…

I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. Even though I am married now, I still don’t like it. My husband and I treat it like a regular Tuesday. It’s a day where single people are supposed to feel bad because they don’t have someone to give them a bunch of roses or chocolates. Or take them out to restaurant where the menu prices are exponentially higher because it’s February 14th. So today, I’m going to make a list of great gifts to give to anyone BUT your partner. How about a great card for your sister? BFF? Grandmother? Because everyone deserves to be loved, not just your romantic partner. And these will last longer than a heart shaped candy box. Because dogs really are the best Valentine. Get this card along with a great bottle of wine. To buy, click here. I mean, duh! Rock this anytime of the year,…

Lately, it seems I listen to a lot more podcasts. I couldn’t tell you the top 10 hits on Spotify, but if you have an hour, I’ll talk your ear off about my favorite shows. I love listening them when walking my dog. The stress of the day fades away as I listen to topics ranging from self-help to witty pop culture commentary to crazy murder stories and so much more! Today, I’m going to list some great podcasts for just about every dog walker. No matter your interest, there is something out there for you! I will have many more podcasts to list, so this is PART I of my favorite dog-walking podcasts! For the…One who is always trying improve themselves: BY THE BOOK PODCAST, with Jolenta Greenberg and Kristin MeinzerEach week, these good friends try a different self-help book, follow it to the letter for 2 weeks straight, and decide at the end…

Well, it’s already January 10th, 2019. Can you believe it?! I am sure everyone will be saying that for the next week or two, but I really can’t believe it’s a new year. The first half of 2018 was a time for figuring out our next direction. My husband and I had been living in Connecticut for 8 years at that point, where we lived the “boarding school life”, as they call it, where he was teaching History and Philosophy. A year prior to that, we had been discussing new opportunities. He had advanced as far as he could in that position, and it was time to find out what else was out there. After discussing the top locations we would move to (East Coast – Massachusetts/Maine/other parts of Connecticut or West Coast- Oregon/Washington/California), it was time to job search. Because my job is flexible, we worked on finding the…

Phew! I’m tired. Put to me to bed. The tree is packed away, ornaments are back in their boxes, Christmas lights returned (tangled, of course) to the garage, and Hallmark Channel goes back to their original programming. I don’t know about you, but after a week of eating too much, consuming copious amounts of wine, and feeling the dread of looking at credit card bills after all that gift giving, I’m exhausted. Now only 11 more months to go until Christmas! Woohoo…or not… Now that it’s 2019, I’m also making a New Year’s resolution to stop making resolutions. Right before New Year’s Eve, I always get this shot of motivation, like I’m ready to run a marathon. I get my planner out and make all these to-do lists, like I’m actually going to accomplish all of these in 48 hours. Then, inevitably, I only get two done, feel guilty about…

Can you believe Christmas is only 12 DAYS AWAY?! *Runs around in panic* I STILL haven’t done all my shopping, and I really need to get going if I want these gifts delivered in time for Christmas.  Hopefully, you’re way ahead of the game, and not me looking at every holiday gift guide on Buzzfeed. I also try to shop small businesses on Etsy. Being an artist myself, I know how exciting it is to get a sale. However, a lot of these shops close for the holidays, as it takes a long time to get those orders completed.  So, here is a great last-minute gift guide, specifically for your dog-loving parents. And, I checked the shipping dates, so you still have time to order. But hurry! Don’t be those shoppers who run to the overcrowded Target to find something…anything! Even if it’s on the clearance shelf. Get them something…
