This is my dog — his name is Arlo and he was born on July 2nd 2016. If you know me, you know that dogs have always had a special place in my heart. I grew up with them as a kid, and even wanted to start a dog hotel as a child. When I moved away to college I knew I just couldn’t have a dog until I graduated. Even though the temptation was always there, I was determined to be the best dog parent ever, even if that meant waiting until I had the time to make that possible. When my husband and I graduated we were finally able to let the dog dreams loose – the product of those dreams being my sweet, not so little, Airedale Terrier.
