“I recommend biting off more than you can chew to anyone, I certainly do.”
— Alanis Morissette
Well, we’ve done it…and it’s a lot to chew!
So excited to be launching Fetching Apparel in support of our four-legged friends who need a helping paw, but I just had to take it one step farther.
New business – CHECK!
Small children (4 yrs & 2 yrs) and a shelter dog with separation anxiety at home – CHECK!
Work evenings (news anchor/reporter) – CHECK!
Adopt ANOTHER shelter dog…a PUPPY?!?! Cue the sound of a record coming to a screeching, scratching halt. CHECK. Alanis would be proud.
While working with an area shelter concerning our “PickMe! Cam,” I had to walk back and forth where the dogs and cats were housed. Back and forth – bark, bark, sad eyes.
‘Maybe I’ll just take one for a walk?’
‘Maybe my family could just foster one?’
So, that happened.
Turns out, we are foster failures. I learned that term while interviewing NASCAR wife and animal activist Krissie Newman. She used it to refer to herself after ending up with yet another dog in her already pup-filled home. We’re only human, right?!
Back at my house, our elder statesman – an 8-year-old shelter dog named Jeffrey (the inspiration for the Fetching Apparel logo!) – is adjusting to the spunky new kid, and even enjoying his company…when the pup is not nipping at his heels and neck.
And, from furniture to the kids’ toys, the little man is definitely biting off as much as he can chew (even with a basket of dog toys at his disposal)!
Please stay tuned…and thank you for supporting Fetching Apparel!!
