A New Puppy and Some Inspiration #mgtab @natalieann121

Since I started working from home last July, I’ve found it is kind of lonely in the house. Playing music didn’t help much. Even talking to people on FB/emails/texts didn’t help with the need to have another breathing figure in the house with me.

We’ve always owned dogs, but when our last Boxer had a stroke almost 3 years ago, we decided we weren’t ready for the heartache again. Then we decided to move and well, time flies when you’re missing a pet.

Over the last few months, the hubby and I had some serious puppy conversations and came to the conclusion that our lifestyle dictated that we should go with a smaller breed this time around.

It took awhile to find what we were looking for, but last weekend hubby and the kiddo picked up our new puppy (well she’s 6 months old) from a breeder in Philadelphia. She’s a French Bulldog. Or affectionately known as a Frenchie. She’s a diva and pretty much ruling our house right now.

We are going to register her as Eleanor Brick House. Crazy I know, so let me explain. Even on those tiny little legs she is pretty darn fast when she wants to be. Eleanor was the fastest car in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds that Nicholas Cage stole in the end.  Brick house comes from the song… She’s a Brick…House. You can hear it playing in your head now, can’t you?

Don’t worry, we won’t actually call her that. We are going to call her Ella for short, and she comes running when she hears it. Mainly because she wants belly rubs or food.

This new edition to my family has also given me some inspiration for a book that I’m writing, due to come out later in the year. The hero will be a veterinarian because I love it when I’m in new situations that develop into storylines. Stay posted for more information on that in the future, but until then, here are a few more pictures of my baby girl.

  1. What an adorable doggie! I was looking at French Bull dogs on FB last month, and thought, Wow, this is a breed I’d love to have. Maybe next spring… Thanks for sharing and keep us posted on her antics. Hugs! xo

    • My husband thought this breed would be good for us and he was right. But boy does she like to cuddle. We’ve never let a dog on the bed before, but she’s smaller and insists, or we don’t get to sleep. LOL

  2. I just love Eleanor Brick House. She’s a star already. I am sure from her lovely expressions you will have a lovely life with her. She’ s a beauty. ? Do put some more photos on soon.

    • I will definitely keep posting pictures. It’s like the new child in the house and I can’t resist. Unfortunately, most of the pictures show her on our lap. I need to video tape her being a klutz and doing belly slides on the hardwood floor ha.
