We Are Dog People

Sometimes, the truth is hard to face, but it just stares back at you, right from

Virginia +  Kiwi

We are some of Those People. Those of us who are dog people, especially dog people without children....
Kelly + Phillie

well, we can give the wildest Facebook Mom a run for her money when babbling shamelessly about our children pets. One look at this face, and I think it's easy to see why...

Last weekend my friend Virginia was in town. A quick brag, she ran (and completed!) the Marine Corps Marathon....
Heavy Medal

Before her big race, though, she had to carb load so, helping where I best could, I joined her and some of her other friends at DC's Casa Nonna. Food there, by the way, is very good.

Once the pasta had been cleared, the conversation amongst those of us who mother four-legged fur balls but have yet to spawn anything in legs of two, quickly turned to our pooches. Then out came the phones...

and the parade of puppy photos.

This is probably the part where I should get all self-deprecating and make fun of us for loving our pets the way people love their kids, or in the same way, in their stead. I'm not going to do that, though. I think it's perfectly fine for people to lean equally or even more Toto than tot.

We are a Dog People, and there's no need to apologize.

I'm totally one of these people too and I think there's NOTHING WRONG with it. Although my family and boyfriend to question my sanity when the "outfits" come out. Your "baby" is too cute. Love those eyes!

I had a 4x4 painting done of Bailey...I literally commissioned it. I showed it to Scott and he didn't even mock me. It was in that moment that I realized I had gone over some proverbial pet parent edge. Watch the blog for details on the painting though-its ADORABLE!!

Right there with you girl! My dog-child Maggie is our pride and joy! She is the cutest little pom! :)

B)Absolutely love your teal cardi and the layered necklace look. Beautiful.
C) I've never had a pet, but I've always wanted a dog...and this made me want one even more.

You know I'm one of those people too. I use to be worse!
