In 2007, my husband and I decided we wanted to expand the family in the form of a four-legged furry baby. He preferred Boston Terriers but I was the one actually doing the searching and there was no doubt in my mind that we’d end up with a Cocker Spaniel. I grew up with a Cocker and it was my favorite breed. After a failed attempt with another dog that just wasn’t ready to be adopted, we eventually took home Frenchy who changed our lives forever.
A few years later, I began volunteering for the rescue who brought her to us because I couldn’t think of any other way to thank them for the love they brought into our household. We had 5 wonderful years with Frenchy and at the age of 7, she passed over to the Rainbow Bridge. Words cannot express how heartbroken we were. Still, one week later, the dog rescue called and swore up and down that they had another dog for us… they believed she came just for us. Her name was Astoria but we named her Shelby and she is the most affectionate cuddle bug we could ever have imagined.
Without any serious intentions, dogs have become my passion. I have literally turned into “one of those people.” I’ve even given up trying to pry dog hair off of my black wardrobe.
I started this blog to share my silly dog photos, rescue stories, news, product reviews, and awesome dog deals with my readers. I hope you like what you read and that you’ll come back daily for more.
