How Your Life Changes With a Dog

Agnes’ Hoomom is here, to chat today about how your life changes when you get a dog.

I firmly believe that pets are just as important as any other member of the family, and can make as big or a bigger difference in our life as any person. I’m highlighting the biggest ways that your life can change with a dog and what to expect!

Pictures With Santa Paws

If you have a dog or a cat or a rabbit or even a pet rock, you probably like including them in the different areas of your life, and the holidays are no exception! I will admit to spending more than I probably should on Loki and Thor, but I can’t say no to those husky faces. So, of course we had to take them for Santa pictures! I won’t lie, I don’t really have any tips for coraling your pets because the wonderful people at Pet Valu keep them entertained, treated, and happy, but the hilarity and chaos of these three characters is the perfect mid-week pick-me-up!
