Tweet For the past 24 hours, I’ve been laughing over the story of a Portland, Ore., man who called 911 after his 22-lb cat went on the rampage. Lux, the cat, scratched the dude’s 7-month-old baby, so the guy kicked Lux in the rear. Lux didn’t take kindly to that and charged the whole family, […]

Tweet When I first laid eyes on Henry the Pekingese at the ASPCA in June 2006, I immediately noticed his deformed front paw, shaky back legs and blond eyelashes, in that order. I was still mourning Mr. Chubbs, my elderly Pekingese, who had to be euthanized a few weeks earlier after his lifelong neurological disease […]

Tweet Gorgeous client Serena (owner of my IDGAF necklace, among other pieces) recently contacted me with a special request. She wanted a pendant made in memory of her beloved dog, a bullmastiff named Daisy. Daisy died from lymphoma this March, aged seven. Serena emailed me: “We had Daisy since she was six weeks old. She […]

Tweet Here’s a really old photo — a Polaroid, in fact — for Throwback Thursday. I had recently turned 14 in this picture from 1982. As you can tell from the name of my Shih Tzu puppy, my love for the Beatles was in full effect. (Even though Paul was my favorite Beatle, the dog […]

Tweet I almost forgot to report that Sam Waterston wasn’t the only interesting person I spotted in my hotel in Los Angeles last week.  The first night we were there, MrB and I went to get a drink at the bar. I was excited to see a large white dog snoozing on the floor by […]

Tweet Ten years ago today, an 18-month-old Gigi the dog joined our household.  Her backstory is literally kind of shitty so if you’re averse to scatological topics, skip this post. I found Gigi on Petfinder when I was looking for a young companion for my elderly Pekingese, Mr. Chubbs. She was advertised as a Pekingese, […]

Tweet MrB and I went to Washington yesterday for an inauguration dinner. We didn’t see the First Couple — Beyonce and Jay-Z — in person, nor did we see Barack and Michelle Obama, but we still had a good time. I wore an emerald-green Zang Toi gown for the last inauguration. According to Pantone, emerald […]

Tweet MrB says that ever since FitzRoy the cat came home with me in April, our apartment has been like a French farce, with doors constantly opening and closing. Animal traffic flow is the issue. Because I test allergic to cats, FitzRoy isn’t allowed in the master bedroom. But Gigi the dog eats and sleeps […]

Tweet I’ve been panting to see Tim Burton’s new movie Frankenweenie because I love short, chunky dogs … … and big-eyed cats with tiny mouths. MrB and I went to see the movie at a theater a block away from our apartment last night — within the magic zone of invisibility — so I just […]

Tweet I don’t blame him. Being pried out of a warm bed to walk in the rain might make me blow a raspberry at a bitch too.
