I’ll be the first to admit it: here at ReadySetDogs, I LOVE everything to do with dogs. I can get lost for hours on the internet searching for new information, inspirational stories, and funny anecdotes about the furriest members of our families. Reading different thoughts and opinions of other dog-lovers helps me to broaden my worldview and I think I’m a better person and dog-mom because of it.
I thought I would put together a list of blog I spend the most of my time reading so you can broaden your horizons too. Check them out and let me know what you think! And don't forget to check out our new blog as well. Penny, my Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, has a lot to share with you.
