About Houston Dog Mom

In the beginning, I was a normal dog owner.

Then I was introduced to the world of dog rescue and dog shelters. And an obsession was born.

Now that I'm a dog mom, I think about dogs more than is healthy. And you get to benefit from my canine compulsion.

I was a cat person for years. Then I went to the dog side.

I'm a volunteer at Harris County Animal Shelter, and a videographer for Urgent Shelter Pets Houston. My day job is at, helping folks shop for electricity.

I'm a catahoula-husky-blue heeler mix. The perfect first dog for a cat lover (BOL!).

She should have named me "Houdini" since I'm an escape artist. But I do always return.

I still act like a puppy. I'm a big boned girl who doesn't know my size. My favorite thing to do is de-stuff toys. And one day I'm going to catch a squirrel.

Mom says I'm lucky I'm so cute.
