The Dog Mom Project – Abby & Copper

The Dog Mom Project – Abby & Copper

Introduce yourself! Share a selfie with you and your dog.

♥ I’m Abby, a proud new mom (with a proud new dad as well) to a handsome doofy dog!

dog-mom-project-abby-and-copper

Ok, tell us about your dog. What’s his/her name? Age? Breed?

♥ His name is Copper. He’s 1.5 years old and is a golden retriever.

What is your favorite thing about your dog?

♥ Copper is still new to us so I’m sure my favorite things about him will change but as of right now, I absolutely love how he places one paw on my lap and then lays down on top of me.

Does your dog have any quirky habits? Tell us about them.

♥ He does this very interesting thing where he moos when he’s happy. It’s not quite a groan and not quite a bark; just a big moo!

Finish this sentence. If my dog had a song stuck in his/her head, it would be…

♥ Canned Heat by Jamiroquai. He’s a happy dog, what can I say?!

At what point did you realize you weren’t just someone who has a dog, but a dog mom?

♥ When we picked Copper up from getting neutered, I got on the ground at the vet and just cried. It was insane and I still tear up thinking about it.

What’s one thing you want someone without a dog to know about being a dog mom?

♥ We get it, they aren’t people. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t killer important to us!! So, let us pick a bar where they can go and let us show you their picture.

What’s your favorite dog product?

♥ So far my favorite dog product has been the Chuck It. It’s so simple but with a dog that can sprint and play fetch, it’s perfect!

Now, share a favorite picture of your dog with us.

The Dog Mom Project – Angie & Sawyer

The Dog Mom Project – Angie & Sawyer

Introduce yourself! Share a selfie with you and your dog.

♥ Hi, My name is Angie, dog mom of three, leather artisan and future lawyer. I love handcrafting leather dog collars, eating avocados, and dancing in my room.

Check out Angie’s handmade leather collars here. They’re amazing! 

Dog Mom Project - Angie & Sawyer

Ok, tell us about your dog. What’s his/her name? Age? Breed?

♥ My dog’s name is Sawyer. He is 6 months and of course filled with so much love and energy. Sawyer constantly receives remarks because of his comical expressions and because he has not acquired that signature German Shepherd pointy-eared look. However, his beautiful midnight coat, sweet honey colored eyes, and solid muscular regal silhouette make up for his goofy floppy eared face, non-graceful and clumsy gallop, and his constant battle staying balanced with his enormous paws.

What is your favorite thing about your dog?

♥ My favorite thing about Sawyer is his mellow and at times well collected personality. Every minute with Sawyer is an adventure and a learning experience- he is inquisitive, warmhearted and protective.

When do you and your dog have the most fun together?

♥ Sawyer strives to make every moment of our lives fun. During playtime and walks we have the most fun. Although he is mellow and tranquil, he will never pass up a playtime opportunity.

Does your dog have any quirky habits? Tell us about them.

♥ Sawyer enjoys gazing at his reflection and his various head tilting positions. He is also obsessed with water and must be in it no matter the body size of water. He must stomp and flop through every body of water and then turns around to observe the waves he created and tries to catch the waves with his teeth. Sawyer can spend large amounts of time gazing and inspecting his reflection- he use to run into our mirror and bark at his reflection- now he constantly tilts his head and heavily observes the various ways his head moves.

Finish this sentence. If my dog had a song stuck in his/her head, it would be…

♥ Train – Drops of Jupiter

At what point did you realize you weren’t just someone who has a dog, but a dog mom?

♥ From the moment I saw and felt his serene, warmhearted, and fuzzy face. I held him minutes after he was born and tears of joy streamed down my face as his tender and gently touch soothed and lightened every aspect of my life.

What’s one thing you want someone without a dog to know about being a dog mom?

♥ Dogs are amazing family members. Their unconditional love is something we all naturally seek and need. If given the opportunity- they will always display their love and loyalty without expecting something in return. Once you open your home to a dog- your entire view point about the world and surroundings will change and for the better.

What’s your favorite dog product?

♥ Kongs. We give Sawyer his kibble and treats in them, which helps him eat slower while being entertained and challenged. Kongs are a great help for our highly active 3 dogs.

Now, share a favorite picture of your dog with us.

The Dog Mom Project – Melissa & Kyra

The Dog Mom Project – Melissa & Kyra

Introduce yourself! Share a selfie with you and your dog.

♥ Melissa is the name, dogs are my game.  I love all dogs, they’re just amazing creatures.  People have told me when they die they’d like to come back as one of my dogs because I treat them like royalty.

Ok, tell us about your dog. What’s his/her name? Age? Breed?

♥ My little girl is Kyra…aka Ky…and when she’s feisty she’s The Kaiser.  DNA tests tell me she’s mostly Pomeranian with a mix of various terriers in there.  She’s going to be 8 years old (or so we think) this year.  Ky was a little street dog found out in Tacoma.  She apparently had a hard start to her little life…has a bee-bee shot imbedded in her back and you can tell she’s had a broken rib.  I got her at about a year old and have tried my best to give her the life she deserves as a princess.  She’s the most amazing little girl and everyone falls in love with her when they meet her…she even has her own fan club.

What is your favorite thing about your dog?

♥ Her personality definitely.  She’s an independent girl, but at the end of the day she loves nothing better than snuggling with me on the couch and then cuddling in my armpit when we go to bed.

When do you and your dog have the most fun together?

♥ I love the times when we grab her favorite toy and play on the living room floor.  It’s a toy flower I got from BarkBox that she loves chewing on while I try to steal it from her.  She playfully growls and pretends to snip at my hand until I finally get it and throw it across the room for her to go get…then we begin the process again.

Does your dog have any quirky habits? Tell us about them.

♥ Well, there’s our after breakfast chat.  It’s been the same thing every morning for years.  I give her breakfast, and go back to getting dressed for work.  Once she’s done she comes to the bathroom doorway and sits politely.  I give her a good back scratch while I ask her how her breakfast was…then I answer for her in my best doggie-baby voice that I attribute to her…it generally goes something like “it was good mom, but you know, I’d like more of that peanut butter if you could.”

Finish this sentence. If my dog had a song stuck in his/her head, it would be…

♥ Um, I’d have to go with that line from the Avril Lavigne song “Don’t pretend I think you know I’m damn precious/And hell yeah/I’m the mother fucking princess” because she’s the princess and demands that you treat her as one.

At what point did you realize you weren’t just someone who has a dog, but a dog mom?

♥ I don’t have kids, don’t care to…just dogs.  The more I came to understand a dog, their connection and love for their family, the more I realized how special they are.  Then I started seeing all dogs that way…and seeing the unconditional love they provide.  There was no turning back, I knew I had to try to love them as much as they love me.

What’s one thing you want someone without a dog to know about being a dog mom?

Try to look at them as a child, not just an animal.  Look at them as a loving part of your family and recognize the unconditional love they provide you.  No matter how bad your day, you walk in the door and they’re so genuinely excited to see you.  Once you start recognizing that behavior in them you’re world will be such a happier place.

What’s your favorite dog product?

♥ For Kyra, I’m a big fan of the Kong…I stuff it with some treats, then top it off with peanut butter and it’s a consistently great little treat for her…that thing will last forever.

Now, share a favorite picture of your dog with us.

The Dog Mom Project – Morgan & Henley

The Dog Mom Project – Morgan & Henley

Introduce yourself! Share a selfie with you and your dog.

♥ I’m Morgan. I’m 32 years old, married, and a lawyer. I’m also a cat mom. I love cross-stitching, CrossFit, coffee, and watching true crime tv shows.

Dog Mom Project - Morgan & Henley Selfie

Ok, tell us about your dog. What’s his/her name? Age? Breed?

♥ My dog is Baron Henley von Pretzel, or Henley for short. Also known as H, HP, Pretzel, P-Retz, etc. He’s a 3 year old Chihuahua Schnauzer mix.

What is your favorite thing about your dog?

♥ My favorite thing about Henley is that he is just so darn friendly with everyone. He loves kids, old people, other dogs, cats, frogs, you name it. He just wants everyone to love him.

When do you and your dog have the most fun together?

♥ I would hope Henley says when we walk every morning, but I think he has the most fun when we crash on the couch together after a long day and veg out OR when I take him to the dog park.

Does your dog have any quirky habits? Tell us about them.

♥ Henley has a stuffed monkey named Monkey Pistorious that is his best friend. He takes Monkey everywhere. If he gets up to go potty in the middle of the night, Monkey comes with him and then he takes Monkey back up to bed when he’s done. He also has the unfortunate quirk of occasionally ripping off Monkey’s limbs, so each of Monkey’s arms and legs have been sewn on multiple times and now have supplemental fur grafts holding him together.

Finish this sentence. If my dog had a song stuck in his/her head, it would be…

♥ Walkin’ on Sunshine.

At what point did you realize you weren’t just someone who has a dog, but a dog mom?

♥ For Henley’s birthday once we took him to the doggie spa. He got a blueberry facial. He loved it.

What’s one thing you want someone without a dog to know about being a dog mom?

♥ They really are family members!

What’s your favorite dog product?

♥ Bully barbells!
