long time, NO BLOG

So sorry - real life got in the way.

On June 13, I lost my 5 year old English bulldog, Gus, unexpectedly. Probably one of the harder days of my life up to this point. To compound the loss, I was in Las Vegas. Not the phone call one looks forward to receiving at 6:15 a.m. while on vacation.

Sweetest boy ever. My time with him was way too short. We rescued him at just 2 years of age and he passed at 5 1/2...I had the honor of calling him mine for three short years. I'm a huge animal lover, so much so that I can't even go in to the pet store to purchase dog food because I'll come home with every animal in there. This was my first pet loss as an adult, and I have to tell you, it was hard. I don't have children yet - these are my babies. I miss him so much.

However, I took this as a chance to bring another bullie in to my life. This time, a baby - I brought Piglet (AKA Piggy, Miss P, Piggy Poo and a myriad of other names) home at just eight weeks. She's now almost 12 weeks and so precious. She certainly doesn't replace the Gus Man, but I have a new place in my heart for her. And she's entertaining my other pup, Phoebe, to say the least.

Meet Piglet:

I'll be posting more this week - as you know my shopping addiction hasn't slowed. And I've certainly had my fair share of some ridiculous bargains as of late. TTFN.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss! :(
    I was a little bit cheered up to see Piglet. She's so cute it hurts.

  2. Oh, Piglet is so adorable. What a doll, congrats on your new addition! And so sorry that Gus passed, I can't imagine how painful that is :(

  3. OMG what a SWEET little face!
    I'm so sorry about Gus though. That's terrible. :(
