that warm and fuzzy feeling

I've been absent from the blogging world not only because of my mini-vacation to Sunpeaks, but also because my little dog Chico had to be put to sleep on Thursday. I don't know if any of you have had to put down a pet that you loved more than the world, but it left a giant hole in my heart that I'm slowly mending. I'm trying to think happy thoughts and I know that he's in a better, peaceful place. I imagine that he's at a version of Cesar Millan's Dog Center, getting a little TLC and going on pack walks with other beautiful dogs. All of my family and friends have been so wonderful, so a big thank you to everyone for making me feel loved and supported. I thought about what Cheeks liked best, other than belly rubs, and it was always warm blankets or laying by the fire. So here's a post of cozy items that make me smile and remind me of his cute face. Rest in peace my little baby boy. This one's dedicated to you.

Cheekyface, love & miss you.

Belted Dress, $90 | Bow Beret, $20 | Knit Scarf, $32

Always finding the coziest spot in the house.
It won't be the same without you.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your pup.
    A couple years ago we had to put down our dog Bailey 2 days before Christmas. Worst day ever. So I understand how you feel.

  6. Thats so sad, I'm so sorry about you pooch. When i was a kid we lost our family dog and i remembered i cried for like a month, i was so sad....it gets better though. looks like you have lots of fun times to remember.

  7. So sorry. It gets better over time.

  8. So sorry about your dog..he looks ADORABLE, I can imagine how tough it must be!


  9. Oh my goodness Chelle, I'm so sorry for your loss :(

  10. I am so incredibly sorry , I can't really imagine how big is your loss, I've been fearing my little doggy soul would be someday taken away from me and it feels awful! Be brave!

  11. Oh my gosh what a cute puppy!!! I love all of your cuddly choices - I could use them in this -20 weather we're having! Love all the fur!


  12. OH! I'm so sorry to hear that! He's adorable. It's never ever easy, hang in there!

  13. Hi Chelle, I'm sorry to hear about Chico, he's adorable. I can completely understand and relate because I had to put my dog down this past weekend. It's one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, but I know he's in a better place now. So there's comfort in knowing that our dogs hopefully met and are friends up there, running around and chasing each other's tails and what-not haha. And I'm sure they miss us as much as we miss them. Keep your head up and with time, things will get better xo
