#MondayMiracle time! 
One look was all it took for Raquel Fernandes to fall in love. She and her husband arrived at New York’s SPCA of Westchester on June 28 intending to just meet — but not yet bring home — a geriatric Chihuahua they’d spotted on Petfinder, but the old dog wasn’t about to be left behind and busted …

My latest review for +Dogster​: #roodie
My dog Marshmallow is so clingy. She wants to be next to — or, better yet, on me — all the time. A true little lap dog, Marshmallow’s codependent dreams came true recently when we tested out a new product called the Roodie. A blue pullover-style hoodie with an extremely large, zippable, front pocket, this successful Kickstarter …

For many, Labor Day is a time to relax and get away from the daily grind, but for Max — the geese-herding Border Collie employed by New York City’s Governors Island — the daily grind is everything a dog could ask for. “He doesn’t like days off. He gets sulky if I try to sleep …

#MondayMiracle #rescuedog My latest for +Dogster​! 
She smelled the puppy before she saw him. That’s what Janine Guido, the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, remembers about the night she met her dog, Libre. It was the 4th of July, but Guido wasn’t in the mood for celebrations. An hour earlier, she’d received a picture of puppy so overcome with mange, skin infections, …

I miss pur old vet! 
I downloaded and filled out the new client form from the vet clinic’s website, but there was no email address listed, so I called to ask for one. The woman who answered the phone declined to give me the clinic’s email address and suggested I could instead fill the form out again by hand when I …

Jeanie was a +Dogster​ hero, and now her new sister Pippa is a #MondayMiracle! #rescuedogs
At their home in Louisiana, newly three-legged Pippa follows behind famously three-legged Jeanie, heading toward the sound of a human offering treats. Pippa is starting to realize she is one lucky pup — not only did she get out of the shelter, but she ended up with a canine mentor and a family well-versed in tripod …

The term “working dog” calls to mind images of German Shepherds in police vests or Border Collies herding sheep, but in the Instagram age, a new crop of photogenic pups are working hard at striking poses. Recently signed to canine talent management firm The Dog Agency, 2-year-old Royce the Frenchie is leading the pup model …

I usually write about pets, but this peice for +Tribe Magazine​ is about parenting of the human variety. If you know a first time mom who plans to breastfeed, share this with her so she can learn from my mistakes! #everythingtribe #breastfeeding #nursing #bra 
I wish I'd learned the following five nursing bra lessons before becoming a breastfeeding mom. 1. These bras are absolutely necessary

My latest for Dogster! Because every dog deserves a couch of thier own. 
With a borrowed pickup truck parked on our front lawn, my husband and I moved our new couch up the porch and through the front door as our dog looked on, his head tilted in confusion. “This is for you buddy,” I told our big Golden–Lab mix, GhostBuster, my voice competing against that of our outraged …

Time for a #MondayMiracle! #rescuedog 
The breeder didn’t know what to do. While the rest of the pups in her Pit Bull’s litter nursed and filled their tiny bellies, the one born with with a severe cleft lip and palate starved, unable to latch on. Recognizing that this puppy, Ruby, needed help, the breeder turned to the internet and found …

Formerly known as Heather Gilbertson, before I got married
I've been super impressed by Diva's and Shelby in particular. She always does a great job cleaning up my undercut style pixie cut. She talked to me about the possible consequences of my intense at-home bleaching habit without talking down to me (trust me, I already knew it was horrible) and during my last visit she suggested a mask treatment that left my fried, white-blonde hair feeling silky instead of crispy. I'm currently suffering from a combination of postpartum hair loss and terrible hair choices (new baby always cries when I shower so in a moment of sleep deprivation just gave myself a crew cut with the dog's clippers). As soon as I have enough hair to work with I'll be heading back to Diva's for a proper hair cut and hopefully a less damaging approach to blondness.
