Hi, my name is Sue and I'm the voice (and now the face!) behind The Puppy Dog Place.
So, what can I tell you about me? What do you even want to know?
I'm not sure, but here's a quick peek at who I am and why I created this website, and perhaps you'll even see why it's become a never ending labor-of-love as well as a profitable online business..........
Although you probably don't need to be told this.... I adore puppies!
And of course, I love dogs who aren't puppies anymore too, in fact I'm a complete 'softie' when it comes to pets of all ages, sizes and descriptions.
I'm a life-long dog lover and I've raised and trained dogs for more years than I care to remember! Rottweilers are my favorite breed of all, but we have all sizes and breeds in our 'pack'... and we love every single one of them.
Right now our 'menagerie' consists of 6 dogs, 3 cats and a Quaker parrot. Many of our pets are 'rescues' and we have dogs both big and small, old and young, crazy and cranky. There's never a dull moment in our home I can tell you :)
I'm also a divorced mom with 6 amazing kids ranging in age from 16 to 26 (that's them in the pic immediately below). I'm also a stay-at-home mom and an entrepreneur.
In fact this website is just part of my own small business 'empire' - well, it may not exactly be an empire just yet, but I'm getting there.
Although currently our family lives in the United States, I'm actually Scottish by birth (born in Glasgow Scotland), and have also lived in England and Canada. In fact, my eldest daughter was born in Ontario.
I'm used to moving around, and I don't necessarily expect to stay in the same city for a whole lot longer, but I'm pretty sure that we'll stay here in the USA because we love it!
My favorite things to do are spend time with my children, take care of my menagerie of pets, read and go to the movies. Oh... and I LOVE chocolate!!
I also love working on my websites (yes, I have 3 sites now, and another one still in the planning stages) and I absolutely adore helping other dog lovers and new puppy owners to take better care of their four-legged best friends.
I'm earning money doing something I truly enjoy - what more could I ask
After my divorce, with 3 children still at home, money was tight and I needed to find a way to earn money and still be there for them as we adjusted to our new lives. After a lot of research, and a few false starts, I found SBI (SiteBuildIt!) and it was exactly what I'd been searching for.
Having been a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years, my workplace skills were pretty much non-existent, but I loved the idea of building my own business and basing it on a subject that I enjoyed and knew a lot about... and that's how The Puppy Dog Place was born.
Every morning I sit down in my home-office (actually it's just a desk in the front room, but it has a great view of the deck and our acreage beyond - wayyy better than an office cubicle), and I spend my day helping other dog lovers take better care of their four-legged best friends.
Nothing feels better than knowing that what I do has helped someone... and their puppy/dog. When I get an email saying "thanks..." it makes my day.
I really hope you've enjoyed your time here, and that now you know the person behind the pages perhaps you'll come back and see me again soon.
Until we meet again... enjoy your puppy or dog and make sure he/she knows just how much you love them, every day.

There's nothing to stop you from becoming an entrepreneur and
having your very own online business, just as I've been able to do. The internet is constantly growing and evolving and it's the ideal place to start up your own business.. with minimal monetary investment and endless flexibility.
Plus, it's not just perfect for WAHM's (work-at-home-moms), but retirees, realtors, offline small business owners, students..... it's an opportunity everyone can take advantage of. Why not find out more, there's no obligation and today IS the first day of the rest of your life right?.....
