Go big or go home

Every mom needs a little “me time” but these moms take their hobbies to the extreme. You may be surprised -- and perhaps inspired -- by some of the unique, super cool hobbies that these moms enjoy.

Dog showing

Go big or go home

Marjorie Sgarrella, mother of two girls, breeds and shows standard poodles.

"I really enjoy having a passion I can share with my children. Showing dogs is a big time commitment, but I really enjoy it and my family can come to the shows with me…and we all enjoy the dog! We got our first standard poodle when my girls where 5 and 7 and we didn't even know how to spell dog show. Breeding and showing happy, healthy standard poodles has become a great passion of mine; my breading program, JetSet Poodles, breeds about one litter per year. Showing dogs is a great hobby for the whole family, both my girls now have dogs of their own that they showed in junior handling."
