My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much was started as a creative outlet for Michelle to share her love of all things pets, specifically her life with Toby, a 13-pound Chihuahua, who was the exact opposite of what she wanted in her first solely-owned dog.

A life-long pet lover, Michelle has a strong interest in dog training, as well as veterinary medicine, and takes obedience, rally and agility classes at her local kennel club.

She currently lives in the northeast with Toby, her Puppy Bowl XI star, Maddux and a number of tortoises — Daytona, Valentine, Guinness and Matza. There is also a 60 gallon fish tank in her house waiting to be filled!
