Summer Blog Challenge: Day 4 [Meaning behind your blog name.]

Going Green with the Grizls

It took my awhile to come up with my blog name. I had my layout all done and my first post, but I didn't want to put it up until I had a good blog name! Well I finally decided on "Dogs, Dogtags and Diapers," for a few reasons. First of all I love alliteration. Second of all, the things described in my blog post kind of rule my life.

1. Dogs - I have two chiweenies, they were 7 days old when I got them and I bottle raised them. They didn't even have their eyes open when I got them so they think I gave birth to them. They are VERY attached to me, especially Lily who is a little bit smaller than her sister, Isabelle. On the rare occasion that my husband would hear me feeding them (every 3 hours, just like newborn twins) in the middle of the night, he would feed Isabelle, and I would feed Lily (she was harder to feed). So Lily developed a stronger attachment to me.

2. Dogtags - my husband is in the Army. Not much explanation needed there! I also have a set of dog tags with the date we started dating on them tattooed on my wrist. It will also have our wedding date but I haven't gotten around to getting them updated yet. (Even though it's been 1 1/2 years...)

3. Diapers - A LOT of this blog is about my son, Boston, and raising him. Thus the diapers part. I often blog about cloth diapering as well, so I guess that part of the name can go two ways!


  1. It's so cute that you raised your puppies from 7 days old.
