Life as a dog momma


With the constant cuddles, dog licks and Sunday walks.. who doesn’t love being a dog momma.

Firstly I can imagine that it’s a lot easier having a dog as a child than an actual human being. We don’t do any of that nappy changing or crying in the middle of the night kinda stuff. Instead we have barking, whining and nuggets of poo hanging from our dog’s bottom. The joys!

To celebrate national dog day yesterday; Here are the realities of life as a dog momma. If you are thinking about getting a dog, please read with care.
