An Update and a New Face

July 2007 - August 2019

Hi All!

It's been a while... and a lot has happened. I mean, I swear - like for most people the last 12 months has been the most insane time. Honestly, I've kind of been putting off updating the blog because we've got a mixed bag of news to share. Unfortunately, last August we had to say goodbye to our beloved Paddington. I won't go into too much detail, but she was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) which led very quickly to heart failure. While she fought hard, she didn't respond to the medication, and after much discussion with our vet we decided the kindest thing we could do was to put her out of her suffering.

It was hard. Really hard. It has taken us almost a year to be able to comfortably talk about it.

So yeah, that's the bad part of the mixed bag of news.

The good part? Well, last August we also welcomed a new member of the four-legged kind to our family. Despite being totally emotionally wrecked, our house no longer felt like a home without a dog. Though we discussed waiting, by chance we happened to come upon the perfect fit for our family.

Lady loves party hats just as much as Paddington!
Meet Lady! (And yes, because we put off updating and talking about this she just turned 1, haha). A F1B Bernedoodle, her mother was a Bernese Mountain Dog and her father was a mini Bernedoodle. While little dogs always have a special place in my heart, we felt like it was time for a change and getting another Morkie felt like we were trying too hard to replace Paddington.

I mean, how stinking cute was this little face?!

We're going to do our best to catch you all up and introduce you to the newest member of our pack. In the meantime, we're looking forward to getting back into the blogging world and exploring all of the fantastic finds and products that are out there!

See you soon and we promise not to be as MIA :) And oh - you can follow Lady on Instagram at @Lady_The_Berner.
