A little bit off topic...

So I thought I would share with you all a little bit about why I decided to call my design business "Three Dog Designs"

As I am sure you have guessed, I do in fact have three dogs. I have Bailey (my 5 year old Border Collie Mix) Izzy (3 year old Golden Retriever) and Colby (6 month old Golden Retriever). However the name isn't inspired by them.. But by my dog Britianie. (she is the dog with me in my profile pic) I got her in 1997. My first dog that I truly fell in love with. She was a Golden Retriever to the core, friendly, loveable, goofy, protective. I never knew how lucky I was to have her in my life, until a few years later. To understand this story, you also have to know that I am an insulin dependant diabetic. I have had diabetes since I was 12. One night while I was sleeping I experienced my first ever low blood sugar seizure. Britianie was able to wake up other people in the house, so that they could call 911. The doctors told us if she hadn't done that, I would not have survived. Then a  few years later my mom was dog sitting for me. Britianie woke her up in the middle of the night (she was also an insulin dependant diabetic) My mom thought she had to go outside, so she took her to the door but my dog refused to go outside. While she was up she thought she might as well check her blood sugar. She discovered it was dangerously low. Britianie inspired many of my friends and family to get their own Goldens. They are all amazing dogs. Unfortunatley I lost both my mom and my beautiful girl Britters earlier this year. But I like to think that they are still watching out for each other though!
