Caroline GallupWelcome to Dog Days and the Buddha, a health and lifestyle blog by writer and dog-lover, Caroline Gallup.

Life is full of curve balls, don’t we all know it! This blog is about how to swerve them, catch them and make the most of them. Caroline Gallup know this first hand having turned many challenges into opportunities. After struggling with fertility treatment for many years, Caroline went on to write the highly praised “Making Babies the Hard Way” and has worked tirelessly to help people see the positive aspects of not having children. In recent years, she has trained a dog for medical research and is now a full time carer for her mother.

We hope this blog from Caroline and other contributors will offer inspiration, amusement and good advice for embracing life not matter what it throws at you.
