A Peek Into My Home Life

I've decided to wait until tomorrow to share with you all Scott and I's pumpkin patch adventure. Instead, I wanted to give you a little peek into my home life.

This is Jake, he is my 13-year-old Pembroke Welsch Corgi. Jake means the world to me, and has been a major part of my life growing up. When he was younger he used to love to play with rubber bands (he literally would fling them from his nail and tooth (Scouts honor)), and chase after me, whether we were in a parking lot, or in green grass. In his older age, he still loves to play with rubber bands, even though not as much, and is a real cuddler.

A few weeks back he got really sick and we had to take him to an animal emergency room. He was diagnosed with old man's syndrome, which will occasionally make him react like he has an ear infection, therefore being dizzy and not able to keep his lunch down, and has since got much better. He is still on the mend, and we are hoping that this sickness isn't more than we think it is. He means the world to me, and I can't imagine my life without him.

Do you have any pets? What are they like?


  1. Aww I love Corgis!
    I have a Golden Retriever that lives back home with my dad in CA. She just turned 9 Oct 2nd. She has a really bad Thyroid problem so she is pretty overweight and at one point she weighed more than I did lol (when I was underweight at the time). I love her so much and I really do miss her!

    Little Sugar Monster

  2. aww. that picture is wonderful.
    cleo, my puppy is 14. she's still my puppy even though she's not one. :)
    she has really bad arthritis. its so sad to watch her hobble..but i love her more than anything.
    i know how you feel.

  3. Jazmyn- Jake had a thyroid problem as well, so he had to have surgery done and he lost a lot of weight afterward. Your dog sounds very sweet!

    Gee- "Puppy" is exactly how I feel about Jake :] Cleo sounds like a sweetie!

  4. Aw, your puppy is precious! I certainly hope he's all better soon. I had a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Max when I was younger. He was the silliest dog! He never, I mean NEVER, looked where he was going. He was constantly running into the couch, or the door...it was adorable. :)

    I'm more of a cat person, though. I have a three year old cat named Walter Frankenstein, now. I just love him to bits. :)

  5. Aw, you know how much I love my pup Sabin! Ravi and I mention every now and again that we can't imagine our lives without him! It's such a hard thought, so I just live each day to the fullest with him and love him as much as I can!!

    Jake is too cute! I love corgis and their tiny little legs!!

  6. Omg that rubber band story is hilarious! Of course you know Eva - we just love her. I clipped her nails today and cut one too close, and she bled a teensy bit and I nearly DIED. It was so horrible! Isn't it funny how you can love something so much?

  7. Ahh I'm so so sorry to hear about your dog :[ Corgi's are the cutest dogs in the whole wide world. I'm sure he is getting all the best care in the animal ER! <3

    I use to have a yorkshire terrier named Lily! She was the cutest little thing. I miss her to death !

  8. Oh no, poor Jake!
    I understand, how an animal can mean the world to someone. Is there anything the vet could do, to make Jake feel better? When will you get new results?
    I have a cat, who lives at my moms house, because I have a really small flat and at my moms house, she can go into the garden, what she really love.
    Here in my flat I have a Djungarian Hamster named Lina. A few weeks ago, she also was very ill. I thought she would die. You can have a look at my blog, to see pictures of her. Today, she's well and fit, thank god.

    I really really hope, Jake's getting soon better,

    xo, Mel


  9. That photo is adorable! I hope your pup keeps getting better. Pets are such a big part of a family! I have lots. My mom has two cats and my dad has four dogs. I love them all and I can't imagine my life without any of them!

  10. Your dog is so cute! I have two poodles, used to have three. :( I'd like to get a pomeranian whenever I move out.

  11. Aww I know the feeling - I have 2 dogs, 1 is a rough collie, Lassie, and 13 she has really bad legs and is getting older and I've had her since I was little. I also have a 3yr old Jack Russell, Dottie, - it's really sweet though they're best friends although we joke about Dottie being Lassie's carer.

    I hope Jack gets better, it's so distressing when pets get ill xxxxZ

  12. I have several pets, but one is my cat Scamper. She is 19 years old, and I picked her out when I was two. She sleeps on my pillow every night and I can't imagine what living without her would be like, but I'm thankful that I've gotten as much time with her as I have. I hope Jake gets back to feeling like himself!

  13. We have: Bear,15 years old, he is a Labrador/Beagle mix, Jessie, 14 years old, she is a Corgi/something mix, Jack is 8 years old, he is Pit bull/Boxer mix, Bob, 4 years old, Yorkshire Terrier, Patty, 25 years old, she is a Conur Parrot, Jeffery is 10 months old, is a Blue Poison Dart Frog(not sure of the sex yet), oh and we have Daisy she is 4 years old and a cat.
    I sure hope Jake is feeling better, soon!
