Hello! My name is Rachel and that cutie is my dog Bean! Together we make up the Darling Dog Mom, a pet blog devoted to helping provide information and advice to the modern pet parent! For the longest time I was simply a loving cat mom. I originally had three cats named Lily, Binx, and Leo. over the years we have extended our pack to include five crazy cats and three loving dogs! One of our cats is a special needs cat named Tweek. He has Cerebellar Hypoplasia .
While I was still in college, I adopted my dog, Bean. Bean has been a major part of my life for the past three years ago and I have been a huge dog pit bull lover ever since!
I am an advocate for the breed as well through an organization I volunteer with called the Proper Pitbull.
Because Bean is a reactive dog, it’s really important to me to help to change people’s misconceptions about pit bulls.
A year ago, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. While I hoped to be a therapist one day, I always loved to write and was drawn to the world of blogging once I started my first full time job in Human Resources. I chose to write about pets because they are such a huge part of my life and I am always looking to learn more about them!
When I’m not with my pets or working on my blog you can find my nose buried in mystery or fantasy books. I especially love Game of Thrones! While I love to blog, I also hope to be a novelist and write my own fantasy novels one day!
In addition to reading, I spend a lot of my free time watching hockey, shopping, binge watching New Girl on Netflix, or spending time outdoors walking and kayaking and hiking in the summer!
