I know, I know, it’s hard to believe that this precious little angel was a NIGHTMARE to potty train, right??  Well, it took a full 2 months to train her to go outside to potty, and I felt like a new Mom with a newborn- sleep deprived and crabby!  I was so stressed out that […]

I’m so excited to share my favorite dog beds today!  Bella and Minnie make beautiful models, don’t they?? Let’s start with a BIG dog bed- Bella’s favorite!  It’s a Bessie and Barney bagel bed.
