About Basic Dog Mom

You miss 100% of the dogs you don’t pet.

I’m Wes, and I am living in Austin with my two fur-children, Harvey and Penny. We are content creators and the paws behind Basic Dog Mom. Harvey is a (female!) rescue from Hurricane Harvey. Penny is her sister who found me after being dumped post-pregnancy in a parking lot. Needless to say, we are three of the coolest peas a pod ever had.

I have a fairly extensive marketing and advertising background, as well as an impressive dog meme collection. My pups work their tails off at their designated job at being awesome and maintain their Instagram account @thepennyandharveyshow in their free time.

We were looking for a site we could relate to with our love of dogs, get dog advice, read the latest dog and dog mom product reviews, and just laugh. We decided to become that site.

Live long and pawsper,
