10 Dogs Share Their New Years Resolutions for 2013

10 Dogs Share Their New Year's Resolutions for 2013So far, my 2013 is off to a pretty good start. I am still hanging with my kids at home and my 2 cats are comfortable and eating better. I am hopeful this year will bring all kinds of awesome into my life and I always love the start of a new year!

The New Year is the perfect time to take charge of your life and change the things you’ve been too afraid, too busy, or too whatever to tackle. A fresh new start, a time for new beginnings and a better you.

Yesterday, I shared the New Year’s resolutions of 12 cats which varied from common resolutions to more situation-specific ones. Cats aren’t the only ones who are trying to better themselves though, our dogs are as well.

Check out 10 dogs who are wanting 2013 to be a bigger and better year for them and what they’re hoping to better or change for the new year:
