Welcome to my blog, Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them, a blog for extreme dog lovers! If you want information and tips on Pet Health, Pet Safety, Pet Friendly Travel, and Animal Welfare you've come to the right place!  Some of the things I share on my blog are:

> PET SAFETY information like how to find a lost dog, keeping dogs safe, and micro-chipping & ID tags for pets.

> PET TRAVEL Tips on how to travel safely with pets, by airplane or by car.  Great dog friendly travel destination recommendations across the U.S. from Sedona, Arizona to The Hamptons, New York.

I started my blog because I wanted to share information and tips about how to be better stewards of our pets’ well being.  I wanted to share information I learned as an animal shelter volunteer and about animal welfare in general.  I also wanted to share tips about pet health, safety, travel and how rewarding life with dogs can be!

At a shelter volunteer event I organized for my co-workers.
I love helping animals and giving back to the community.  Over the past 8 years I’ve been an animal shelter volunteer and a foster Mama to some amazing dogs.  It's not easy letting go of my foster angels when they are ready to leave me, but I love helping them find loving, forever homes!

I trained my Siberian Husky, Icy, to be a therapy dog.  We are a registered Pet Partners animal therapy team.   I adopted my other dog Phoebe from one of the shelters I volunteered at.  Volunteering at the shelter and working with Icy to help people in need are two of the most rewarding things I've ever done!

  1. I'm very excited to have learned about your blog thanks to the WW Blog Hop! It sounds like we share similar viewpoints. I love huskies and all the spitz-types - my previous two dogs were a Norwegian Elkhound and a Chow mix. Looking forward to following along - I've added you to my Bloglovin' roll!
