I called my BFF Frank in Colorado and asked him what should I do. His immediate response was go straight to the local SPCA and adopt a dog. I am a animal lover but had never really considered owning a dog. “As soon as I got inside the shelter, all the dogs were barking wildly…except for one big brown girl who was just eyeing me quietly, sending me that message that only means ‘I need a home soon or I’m not gonna make it.’ I took her in the meet and greet room and it was obvious that there was a forever bond made right there and then. “In all these years, I have tried to be the very best thing that ever happened […]

I went from working as a freelance makeup artist for TV, dropping everything when the phone rings and bouncing from different studios, to wanting to be a stay-at-home purse dog mom. Jewel came into my life at the perfect time. My mom was dying of cancer and when Jewel came into my life, she provided a lot of comfort and helped me keep my heart open during a difficult time.

Synthialyn tells us, “They are sisters born right here in Dallas, Texas. They are always ready to pose for photos or take a nap. I’m often designing dog clothes and accessories, so I use them for my models, but they also bring my elderly parents much joy when I’m away. (My mother is on dialysis but the dogs give us a good excuse to get everyone out for a walk.) “Macy acts like a baby and cries if I’m out of her sight, and Lacy never want to come back in side from when we’ve gone for a walk.

She does lure coursing and flyball, and is learning to dock dive! Her high energy has introduced her owner to the love of dog sports. She loves the attention she gets when she is dressed up and poses (we call it the Regal Beagle Pose.) Her best friend is a Chihuahua named Pickle that she absolutely loves. Z will also eat anything that has been dipped in Ranch dressing. Z loves car rides, but she prefers to ride in style – in the kiddo’s booster seat! She fits all 50 bounds of her into it!

I’m 2 years old, crate-trained, potty-trained, and now going to classes to be manners-trained! Not to brag, but so far I have an “A” in leash training. I love going on walks and hanging out with people. If I had my way, I would be an only pup. Then again, I do love the ladies so if you have a submissive female dog at home, I’d be happy with a new fur-sister! I haven’t had the chance to mingle with small kids but if you have older kids, I would love to meet them. It would be awesome to be around my people as much as possible – it gets lonely being home alone all the time. Hey, I’ll even go running with you! I’m a pretty handsome guy as you can see from my […]

My then-boyfriend (now husband) and I were in no position to get a dog when Bleu found me on a golf course in Wylie, but Bleu had other plans!

The first weekend we had him 3 years ago, he did not have a good reaction to his vaccinations from the vet and he got violently ill. We were worried he wasn’t going to make it because he was so young, but he was fine and has been amazing ever since. He is true to his breed – very loyal, sensitive, and with tons of energy. GSDs are definitely called ‘velcro dogs’ for a reason…they just love being by your side and their energy is unreal.

Michelle tells us: “Buddy showed up in my front yard about 9 years ago. He was scared and skinny. After 10 days of feeding him hot dogs, I finally earned his trust enough to get him to follow me to the backyard. I sat on my steps and said, Please be nice to my dogs. He slowly crawled up into my lap and put his front paws around my neck and gave me a hug. I think I knew he was meant to be mine from that moment on. I put him up for adoption through a local pit rescue because I already had a full house with 3 cats and 2 dogs, plus my foster puppies.

Their favorite things are sunning outside, snuggling, belly rubs, attention, licking, sniffing, sleeping, stalking, following their people everywhere, interacting with guests, being persistent, begging for treats at meal time, and helping out in the kitchen. Their favorite treats are Daddy Greg’s puppy treats and they do not like bath time, being left at home alone, nail trimmings, or electronics like TV, computer, phones – because that means Greg can’t pay full attention to them! Greg tells us, “Their unconditional love is contagious. Major was named after me and his other daddy. His other daddy’s middle name is Anthony and my middle name is Nelson. So put Anthony Nelson together and if you are a fan of the 60s sitcom I Dream of Jeanie, Major is the natural name! Gracie knows her name but answers to Gracie, Lu, or Major because she’s insanely jealous of Major getting attention. Love them!” Congratulations to Major and Gracie for being the DallasDogLife.com Dogs of the Week! To submit your dog as Dog […]

Wynonah tells us: Nala was very lonely at home when I had to be at work, and though she got free range of the house, she still found the cat to be not much comfort when Mama was away. Drogon, the new puppy, has become her right hand man. They are so cuddly and sweet together but definitely know how to rile each other up! Watching them interact has made me the happiest person alive knowing I could give Nala the companionship she deserves. And you best bet they get mounds of love when I AM home and able.

Meet Ruger, a 6-year-old Labrador originally from Dallas who is currently living it up in Destin, Florida! Ruger loves a lot of things, especially food. He loves McDonalds (especially McDoubles), Taco Bell, Jeeping, grocery shopping, kayaking and eating fish, and going for runs. He also thoroughly enjoys chicken flavored ramen noodles – cooked only for 30 seconds so that the inside of the noodles still have a crunch to them. His dad Robert says, “One time I snuck him in the movies to see Bolt. He ended up getting a popcorn coma and I had to sneak him out of the emergency exit before his old man dog snores drowned out the movie. He also enjoys geckos – and you don’t want to know what I mean when I say ‘enjoy’.” His pet peeves include when Robert forgets to make the bed in the morning, wrinkled bandanas, and the smell of lemons. Robert has a great story about Ruger’s loving personality: “I was on my kayak last week at a local paddling area and a girl walked up to Ruger and started playing with him. They both looked like they were having a great time with each other so I let them do their […]
