Remember how in my last post I apologized for the delay in posts and explained I got puppies? Well,  here they are! Ladies and gents, meet Marty & Miles. Marty is the black one and Miles is brown.

Growing up I had a jack russell terrier as did my Aunt & Uncle and my other Aunt. They seem to be the family dog. We sadly had to put my childhood dog, Abi down at the end of the summer. She was 15 and sadly had cancer. Ever since I started thinking of getting a new puppy, a best friend, a companion. I thought now was especially a good time since I work from home and live next door to my parents.

I started looking into breeders and through a trail of word of mouth found Jody in Maryland who just had two litters! I made the 1.5 hour long drive with my parents and immediately fell in love with Marty. He was the most perky and alert, it just seemed right. Then little Miles came into the picture. You see, he has a hernia. It’s totally fine, doesn’t cause him any pain and the vet said we wait until he gets neutered in April to get it removed. Technically Miles is my parent’s dog but I am raising the pups together, since once again I am here all day working from home and this way they have a built in buddy.

Now a little about them. They technically aren’t related, but isn’t family really not always about blood? Miles is certainly the curious, independent one. He likes to step away from me and explore and has a lot of attitude. I saw his spunky personality come out at the vet last week and also whenever I put them in the cage to run errands he howls and howls.

Marty is much more a people pleaser, he has to be on my lap or if he explores outside, he comes right back as he can’t spend ,pre than 1 minute away from Mom. Marty is a cow though when it comes to food (maybe that’s why he is black and white?!). He eats so quickly and then tries to steal Miles’ food!

Speaking of food I thought I’d share a few of our favorite puppy products too. Even before I got a dog I had been eyeing Dana of Indigo Home Shop’s chinoiserie dog bowls and treat canisters! Could they not fit in with #patriciaspalace more? They are such solid, good quality pieces and I love that they are personalized with their names. Speaking of names, Marty is named after Frank Sinatra’s boxing name and his parent’s speakeasy, Marty O’Brien. I picked this name because Will and I love to listen to Frank Sinatra when we cook every night. Then I chose Miles after Miles Davis and Miles Redd. Plus, they just roll of the tongue together.

Lastly, I have a dog collar obsession, it’s like their very own accessory! I got these from Southport Hound, Miles’ has a fox hunt on his and Marty’s has mallards and pointer hounds. However, I do love the ginger jar and palm leaf one but wasn’t sure if they were too girly for these dudes. Oh and have you seen the Proper Fetch ones too though? They might be next.

Hope you enjoyed meeting these two as you will be seeing a lot more of them!
