My Dog Mom vs Dog Dad "Roles"
What my roles as the dog mom are vs. my husbands roles as the dog dad, and how we work together to ensure Olive receives the best possible care.
When it comes to dog parenting, my husband Bryce and I make an amazing team. We help each other in every aspect of our lives.
Our dog parenting roles are less of an "assignment" and more of "I got this part!" However, that doesn't mean we don't switch off helping each other out.
With that being said...
