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.
Natalie Ann lives in Upstate NY with her husband, son, and French Bulldog. She has always had a love for books, especially happily ever after. She writes contemporary romance with a dash of humor focusing on real life (but fictional) situations and storylines. She’s inspired by the crazy, ridiculous, touching, and emotional family dynamics that most people go through. Her series are based right in her home state or cities she has visited.
