I am a wife, mother of 3, business owner, and an animal enthusiast.

Our family unit consists of:

Monica and Rick
2 Children at home
1 Child at college
5 Great Danes
2 Maltese
1 Guinea Pig
1 Bearded Dragon

So, you’re wondering if I’ve always been a glutton for punishment? Or, possibly… have I always operated a zoo?

No offense taken.

I have always had some type of animal, as far back as my memory will go. They included cats, dogs, hamsters, parrots, parakeets, finches, chickens, a turtle, and fish of all kinds (fresh and salt water). Back in the day, I longed for a monkey but that was never to be. I can’t say I regret that one after having the 3 children. I’ve bought enough diapers in my life!

Though, destiny has determined that my life will forever include scooping poop of some kind or the other. And, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I fell in love with Great Danes not too long ago and with everything else in my life, one is never enough. At this point in my life, we have the 5 spoiled rotten Great Danes. And while it’s true that Great Dane’s don’t mind being solitary animals, I just feel like it’s terrible punishement and that everyone should have a friend to play with, cuddle with, and love.

At Dog Blog It!, you’ll find plenty of adventures of all types. I hope you’ll stick around and share some of your stories too.
