I especially want to give a shout out to the single moms out there. You are amazing. I can't even imagine the struggles you face on a daily basis - from money, to childcare, to positive father figures, to dating. Never give up. Those babies are worth it!
And to the doggie moms, like me, you are moms too! How many times have you cleaned up poop, pee, and vomit? (Only if you got to it before someone ate it. Disgusting.)

Spent too much of your paycheck on food, snacks, and toys? (Just to have someone chew the toys up in 2.5 seconds. Ungrateful little shits.) Rushed someone to the

Here's a great program I found that teams up with Purina & Jenny Craig to encourage you to use your dog as a walking/exercise partner to help you BOTH reach your weight goals. I've got some obese
I will keep you updated on OUR progress!
