Just two best friends who moved miles apart, across the country, only to find their love of dogs would keep them together!
We never knew our crazed dog obsession would lead to this fun and exciting blog life that we have now. We all believe that dogs are the source of pure happiness and with that happiness comes crazy adventures, fun, chaos and even a little bit of fashion! This blog is more than just a hobby to us gals, it has come to be the key to this crazy dog mom life and we are so excited for you to join us on the ride!

Megan is a Dallas girl at heart but moved to NYC in 2012 to follow her dreams in fashion. After about 4 years in the fashion industry. After missing her 5 dogs back in Dallas, Megan got her first NYC dog, a rescued border collie named Pharrell, and quickly learned that her passion for dogs outweighed fashion by a landslide. So, 3 rescue dogs she left the fashion world (took all the clothes of course) and started working as a marketing and community manager for NYC dog companies. Megan is also the Pet Contributing Editor at Bestprodcuts.com, she finds all the must-haves and has all the need to know of everything pet. Megan is always on Central Park dates and hitting up every dog-friendly event in subway distance. Megan is also on the board at Global Strays, which is where her passion lies in helping dogs around the world and raising awareness on the importance of spay and neuter in developing countries.

I enjoy Sunday naps, laughing with my family, eating breakfast, and loving on Abbie and Gunner. (Not necessarily in that order!) I am just like you other dog moms – my pups drive me freaking insane at times but I love them more than life itself! I honestly wish I could have them with me for an entire lifetime! This whole dog mom thing is a roller coaster ride, am I right?! One minute you are super proud of your pup for learning a new trick and the next minute they are pooping on your Crate & Barrel rug! (Cough. BABY GUNNER. Cough.) I’m so excited to share our journey with you and hear about yours as well! The reason I decided to be an editor for Gal’s Best Friend was not because of the love I have for my dogs (which is A LOT) but I wanted to connect with people who have that same love, all across the world! What better way to connect with dog moms than to experience things together and connect with one another on a personal level?! I look forward to writing for Gal’s Best Friend, but I am more excited to read your comments and get to know each and every one of you and your fur babies!
THE STORY OF THE GALS
Gal’s Best Friend started in 2007 when Megan and Chelsea met at the Texas Rangers Six Shooters tryouts. A couple years later, we ended up at the same University and bonded over our love of fashion, Justin Bieber, and PUPPIES. But if you would have asked us if we’d still be close friends and obsessed with the same things thirteen years later… Well, yes. That is believable! But starting a lifestyle blog, together, centered around dogs, ( Gals Best Friend )… WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE!
Fast forward to 2015 when Megan had a random dream late one night, that we started a dog blog together. Crazy, right?! Because we lived in different states and only see each other here and there when we’re visiting our home town for the holidays. So, between the miles, the husbands and boyfriends, the jobs, and (more importantly) the dogs, we don’t know how this dream became reality. But it did! And we are so thankful for it. It has brought us back together (not that we ever went that far) and it has given us a reason to talk everyday and see each other every chance we can. We’re grateful that our friendship has been strengthened through this blogging process and saving dogs all over the world. We’ve learned more about each other and ourselves.
Being two different gals, with five extremely different dogs, living in two very different states… Sharing our pups’ various stories will be easy! But, more than sharing our stories with you, we hope to connect with you; our readers! Our goal is to exchange funny experiences that we have with our fur-children, the DIY fails and nails, the places we have been and love, the products that we and our pups are obsessed with, and SO much more. We intend to do all of this with the purpose of bringing modern day dog moms together with Gal’s Best Friend!
