Bird Dogs

Empty Nester’s Best Friend

I’m not here to tell you that getting a dog will solve all your empty nester woes.

But I’m not here to NOT tell you that either.

And while there is some truth to the conclusion that dogs can actually be MORE work than children, the joy, laughter and instagram justification more than make up for the effort.

While only two out of these three get to call my nest home on a full-time basis, we do refer to them collectively as “My 3 Puggles” and share their adventures here¬† . . .


In this BIRD DOGS section of MY (NOT SO) EMPTY NEST, I’ll be sharing the adventures of Beignet (the old lady), Basil (he who rules the roost), and Belle (the baby who lives with her Mom and made me a grandma for the first time!) as well as thoughts on items and strategies every good dog mom should know about.

. . .

So Stay Tuned!
