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.
Jessica is a Dallas girl born and raised who found her love for animals at an early age. Before having any pets of her own, she was famously known for bringing home stray dogs.
This passion to help animals only increased when she fell in love with her first dog, Drake that she adopted in college. 10 years and countless stray dogs later, Jessica lives in Dallas with Drake and her newest addition, Pippa who spend their free time outdoors adventuring whenever possible.
An elementary school teacher by day and a full-time adoption advocate, she is a relatable dog mom and animal lover who makes it her goal to spread knowledge of rescuing to the community around her. She works with trusted non-profit groups and shelters to try to give forgotten dogs a second chance at the happy ever after they deserve.
THE STORY OF THE GALS
Gal’s Best Friend started in 2007 when Megan and Jessica met at the Texas Rangers Six Shooters tryouts. A couple of years later, we ended up at the same University, in the same sorority, 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!
