Happy Half-Birthday, Boys!

I thought it was only fitting that I start this blog today, on Brady & Cooper's half-birthday. Today, the boys are 1 1/2 and topping the scales at around 90 lbs each! Hard to believe when you look at these pictures...



...and then look at these (which were taken last summer after a day of swimming)...



But I am getting ahead of myself. Since this is my first post, let me back up. Welcome to The Brown Dog Boutique Blog! I hope to make this a fun place to share photos of our two brown dogs, the latest news from my shop, showcase great dog-related products that I come across, share news from my local humane society and anything else that pops into my head. Since I'll be sharing so much information, I guess you probably want to know a little about me first...

Here are the basics...I live in a small town in Georgia (some in Georgia may disagree about the size, but coming from a relatively big city in Virginia, it is very small) with my amazing husband and two rowdy chocolate labs, Brady & Cooper. I do have a day job, but it involves way too much reading and writing and not enough room for creativity, and I realized that I need an outlet to express what really interests me.

So what does interest me? Well, here's a short list...I love the summer, hot weather and being outdoors, preferably at the beach (however, I currently live at least 4 hours from the ocean, so I spend a large amount of time imagining I was there), my dogs, running, designing cute cards and invitations, spending time with friends and family and, most of all, my husband...I could go on and on, but then what would I write about later?

Long story short, over the past year I found an outlet for my creativity creating custom note cards and invitations and started a small business called, fittingly, Summer Day Designs. So why don't I have a Summer Day Designs blog? Well, I decided that my true passion lies with animals, dogs in particular, and I have a whole lot more to write about in this category, so here we are. Thanks for reading, and I hope you check back often!
