Why the Brown Dog?
Our family has almost always had a chocolate lab... or two. Our dogs, Jess and Jake were "the constant" for the kids throughout their young lives and a divorce. Cammie, our first female chocolate lab, joined our family when my oldest son left for the Marines. Cammie had been here through the post-divorce, college and military years. Sadly, we lost her at the age of 4, to Lyme Nephritis. When my middle son left for the Army, we decided to get another chocolate lab puppy. We came home with Cadence and returned the next day for her sister, Scout (our first yellow).
Our family is always taking road trips to various military bases, vacations and beaches...
"off the leash", of course. With 4 kids, at least 2 dogs, the military life, college trips and everyday family fun, we thrive and survive on being organized. Nicole has always had a talent for home organization and she truly loves using a tactical mindset "with an end beyond an immediate action" to organize their life. She is a Certified Professional Organizer and a member of NAPO. Nicole has a background in EMS, Fire-Rescue,
ER Nursing and Forensics, all of which expanded her organizational skills.
After a small health concern with her youngest son, TBD on-the-Run started, as a running program for kids. From here, TBD on-the-go bags were born, with the active family + dogs in mind.
Tactical Brown Dog was inspired from a brown dog's love, loyalty and wagging tail.
Our chocolate labs have taught us the following life lessons:
- Love unconditionally
- Live for the moment
- Be loyal and dependable
- Forgive and move on
- Drink lots of water
- Try anything once
- Play everyday
