introducing both my new puppy biba & the oasis v&a print collection I love
It was impossible to miss on instagram but I’ll happily announce it again here, I adopted a Pomeranian puppy of my very own! Now you might know, I am an avid, giddy crazy dog lover, so welcoming her into my life was a big and exciting decision. And not one I took lightly, I’m single, I work and live alone at home – there is no one to share responsibility or split expenses with. But, when you adore dogs as much as I do, you feel the lack of canine companionship. My apartment ached for little paws to be bouncing off the floors and so did I – for 2 years now, I’ve deliberated on adopting a puppy, never feeling responsible or mature enough. But at 26, my life feels aligned and balanced enough to make room for this little puppy I’ve named Biba. I simply and so zealously adore her. She’s docile, polite and dainty, far more of a lady than I ever could be. She haS not barked once since she moved in. On a different note, I’ve hit a personal record in my single life – I’ve grown very wary of men, in January I put all search for a boyfriend to a screeching halt, refusing to give the little time I had to someone I only sort of enjoyed. You see, I needed this time for myself and I still do, because having a dog is very much part of my personality. And how lovely to have doubled the inhabitants of my 3 bedroom apartment – she is my favourite sort of company. Now I know it’s not an either/or situation, I can have both the puppy and a cute boyfriend, and one day I will but for now her loyal love is all I can justify, because it’s reliable. I prefer reliable love. I have heaps of it, for my friends, family, for my work, for books and exercise – and I’m pretty darn happy to have found another steady love, a reciprocal one, the best love an eccentric, guarded twenty six year old like me can welcome into her life ; the simple always love of a puppy.
