Just shy of two years ago, my whole world was rocked when we picked up a little Shiba Inu named Rigby. Rigby is my very first dog, and I would have never guessed as to how much he would change me. He basically took over my life – including inspiring the name of this blog! ;) Since Jamie from SnapGinger is a big dog lover (and isn’t Roxy the cutest?!), I figured sharing 5 ways becoming a dog owner has changed me would be relatable to all of the other dog lovers out there.
Be sure to check out the rest of this post over at SnapGinger today!
I know what it is like having to put down a beloved pet. Three years ago on day after Christmas we had to put down our 16 year old yellow lab Bonnie. It was really, really hard. They are such important parts of our lives! We are so happy to have our sweet Maltese Albie. He’ll be two in May. He’s a total love! I’m so glad you guys have Rigby. He’s pretty fantastic.
Aw, so sorry you lost your Bonnie. It really is tragic to lose a pet, no matter the age. I’m glad we both have our pups to fill the holes that they leave!
Oh my gosh, I just love Rigby’s face so much. I can’t help but smile any time I see a picture him. haha so cute!
Aw, thanks Julie! He is pretty cute. ;)
That face!! My partner is set on getting a dog in the somewhat near future, and I think it’s time I start putting pressure on him to make it a Shiba Inu ;)
Ha! Good pick… but I have to warn you, they are a handful! I was actually thinking of writing a post about Shibas specifically since I’ve had quite a few questions. :)
They really do change everything!
Seriously! I would have nevr realized!
I just wrote a similar post a few days ago on all the things I have learned since bringing Rosie home. One of the best things that Rosie has done for me is opened a door to a whole new network of friends. Having a dog is basically giving permission to anyone else with a dog to come up and say hello.
Isn’t it funny how our dogs become ice breakers? I have met so many people through Rigby! :)
Such a cute post! I just came across your Blog/Instagram and love em! Keep up the great work

Aw, thank you Lee! :)
He is so cute. I’ve had dogs for as long as I can remember, but can’t at the minute because of where I live and the hours I work. It just wouldn’t be fair.
Aw, thanks Kerry! Bummer, I know what you mean. Hopefully you’ll be able to have a furry friend in your life again soon!
Loved this post! Thanks for sharing it on SnapGinger!!
Of course, thanks for having me, Jamie! :)
Awww look at that cute little smile! I love Rigby!
