Hello my fellow dog lovers and owners! My name is Alison and I am a 30 year old woman living in Brooklyn, NY with my 5 wacky roommates and our 2 precious pups. I have a college degree from CUNY City Tech in hospitality management which I hope to one day use towards starting my own pet-friendly hotel business for the animal loving travelers around the world. I grew up with my first furry best friend, Canuck (no, he was not Canadian), a Llasa Apso/ Jack Russell mix. He sadly passed away at 15 years old when I was in 3rd grade. Fast forward 8 years, and we adopt Benjamin, a 3 month old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy from Missouri. My brother is highly allergic to dog fur, so luckily Ben is a hypoallergenic breed, which made him a perfect addition to our family. Ben lives on Long Island with my parents and brother, and he will be 14 years old in August. In our Brooklyn apartment, we have a mother/daughter duo named Bella and Summer. Bella is a 5 year old “shorkie” (Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix) with the personality of a cuddly cat, and her puppy Summer is a year and a half old “shorkie” (mostly Shih Tzu) who absolutely loves to play fetch and do tricks. They love to run freely at our nearby park and wrestle each other on the grass. I love to come home every day to them and get viciously attacked with snuggles and kisses.
