Maria Menounos's Dog

It is always difficult to balance work with dog ownership. A balance has to be struck, and it is up to the owners to make it all work out. Dogs can't take themselves for a walk, go to socialize with friends, or drive the car to a trailhead and go for a hike. All of that requires time and effort from the dog's owner.

I think it is important to have a backup plan for all dogs in case you ever end up in a work / dog time conflict. A good option is to have a daycare where you regularly take the dog, so it can be socializing and supervised while you are working extra hours. Then, when your schedule goes back to normal, you can continue on with giving your dog normal attention.

I'm not going to condemn Maria Menounos for working. Everyone has to work. And I think she's at least being honest and concerned for her dog's welfare.
