Hey, Welcome to The Kiva Effect! This is a personal blog documenting my journey through life with my dog at my side. After losing my mom at 20 I decided to buy her dream dog that she never could, a bullmastiff. Kiva has brightened my life and kept me going ever since. I decided to make a blog to share a peek into the bond that dogs and humans can share, and pass along any information I learn in our journey. Like keeping drool rags handy if you want to get a mastiff. Preferably one per household member. Anyway, I hope you enjoy our adventures.
