My collars now available at Diva Dogs Boutique!!!

We are soooo happy to announce that my collars made it to one of the most known pet boutiques in Puerto Rico, Diva Dogs Boutique. We have known the owner for over a year now and she has always been super nice to me and specially to Candy. She wanted to see my designs and loved them so she ordered some to see how they sell. I was so happy and thankful for this opportunity and I do hope they sell great!!

Here are some photos of the huge order!!!

Here is one of the beautiful dogs of the owner of the store (Zaira), she has three Chihuahuas and one Dachshund. The pup name is Grecia and she is a one and a half year old probably weighting around 2 pounds.  A very cute and gorgeous tiny dog!!

Here she is modeling our newest design called “The Dauphine”

And of course Candy was with me during this busy day on her new pink car seat. She loves it!!

Micro Bubbles Therapy (Spa Day for Candy)

Candy had a microbubble treatment today and I must say I was impressed by it. We are very happy with everything at the store, from the service to the actual treatment and prize. They only charged us $10.00 (original prize is $25.00) and she received the treatment for 15 minutes. I will take her monthly because this treatment helps with dog who suffer from skin allergies.

This treatments helps your dog in many ways and they don’t use any shampoo or others products besides water to clean them so it is very safe. This cleans all the dirt from the skin and pores, and helps the hair retrieve its original shine.

Here is more information about it if you want to know more: http://www.microbubble.us/index.html

I forgot to take pictures when they did it =( but I did got to see them doing it from far =) which took all my anxiety away. I was anxious because Candy hates water but she actually loved the treatment LOL she was very relaxed after it too.

Here are some pictures of other customers though, Enjoy!!! =D

Isn’t it a gorgeous doggie spa and boutique??

The Spa section!

This is where they do the treatment

For big dogs…

and tiny!

This was how I found Candy when I picked through the door, she was very relaxed. Even thought she did see me she didn’t cry or tried to run to get to me which took me by surprise, means it does relax your pup!!

We even got this beautiful collar!!

Leave me alone I’m trying to see the birds mom!!

Here is a very impressive video of what you can achieve with this treatment in a dog who has skin conditions

Lastly I would recommend this to any dog owner because it is a good way and cheap also to give something to your dog which he or she will enjoy very much.

Take Care Everyone!!!

Meetings, Orders and Some Yummy Treats!!!

Yesterday Candy and me went to a business meeting and of course she had to go with me. We went to a local pet boutique to show our products and see if they where interested in making an order. We have known the owner of the store for over a year now, Candy models clothes for them from time to time and I buy many of her things there. She saw our facebook page and told me to bring some necklaces and collars so she could see them and decide if you wanted them or not. Well we went, Candy was wearing one of my creations and I brought her along so I could show her how they looked. She loved everything but more than any other she loved the “The Dauphine” collars so she made a order for her new store which is opening this month. We were pretty excited and happy since I love doing crafts for pets =D She also ordered one necklace for her tiny Chihuahua for the opening of the store which is going to bring us a lot of promotion since she is very well known everywhere thanks to her stores and creations.

We are pretty excited and we have a lot to do but hopefully this will be the start of great things to come. We would hopefully have many other orders from her since she has three stores around the island.

After our meeting I bought Candy some yummy treats which she loved (I’m going to make a review about them later today). We had some pretty tough rain thanks to Earl and Fiona, they didn’t hit us but they did pass really near by so it brought rain and more rain.

Candy had some reaction to a plant a few days ago during a walk but with medicines (given by the vet) and rest she is doing a lot better. The medicines has her kinda sleepy all the time but she is doing great. She sends many kisses to everyone who sent her prayers and healing thoughts, she sure loves you all!!! <3

Also, be sure to answer our poll!!! We want to post about things you like.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

An I.G. club you say??

Ok I would like to do another post just because today is a lazy day for us both ^.^

Mom recently started to look for other IG’s owners in Puerto Rico so we could have play dates and activities with them all. She didn’t have much luck finding other people with IG’s so she got kind of down. One day we came across a young woman who had one YAY!!! She was super nice and my mom was excited to asked her for play dates BUT at that time I was still getting better from my leg break. They added each other on facebook and would message each other about us and how much they liked the breed. Last week they decided it was time for a meet up and decided a pet park was the best play to do this. Since we only have two pet parks in Puerto Rico and one of them charges a lot just for one day we went to the other one, besides she lived very near the park.

We got to meet Marcela and her IG Piccola!!! <3 We love them both!!! They are the nicest and most pretty person and Ig ever!! ^.^ We are very excited and we know we will become BFF

I was a little shy at first but as time went I started to notice pet parks where pretty cool.

Piccola is 8 months old, she weights only 8 pounds and is a very social and beautiful girl.

Here she is:Isn’t she gorgeous??

Here are the rest of the photos:

We got to meet other dogs!!They even had water fountain for us!!This big guy was cool but he hurt mom =( He got on top of her and scratch her back with he’s claws, but we say is the owners fault because he wasn’t paying attention to him. He didn’t even said sorry to my mom and the pretty dog got my mom all wet since he was all wet from the mini pool.Gosh, were we tired! and happy too!!We are friends now!!! <3Piccola digging Piccola laying down in the hole she made lol she sure is special!!You are a good model Piccola!!Saying our goodbyes to the awesome dogs and their mean owner -_-But I want to keep running mom, lets stay here!!

Not only did she accomplish to finally get me an IG friend but last night she got in touch with two other Ig owners, YAY!!! More friends for me!! <3

This Walk thing is amazing!!

Hi Everyone!! Dogs and humans!!

My mom has been busy with school but everyday she takes some time to take me on walks. Since I broke my leg and had my second surgery I wasn’t able to go on long walks so mom didn’t do them at all. I got all better and she decided she was going to start taking me on long walks again and I must say that I LOVE THEM!!! Everytime she takes out the leash I get really excited and run to her so she can put me the martingale collar on. Also, I run to the door because I know we are going soon. If she takes to much time getting ready I start to cry because I just want to go NOW!!

She takes me at least on a walk of 20 minutes without stopping which usually gets me really tired but happy. We always pass through a street where there is this dog (Maltese and poodle mix) that we don’t like very much =(  Why you ask? Well she always is loose on the street and would always start barking and running toward us. Mom and I get really scared cause we know she has bitten other people before. But mom  always try to scare her off which usually does the trick. Beside that all our walk is a good adventure and I always look forward to my daily walk ^.^

Life is good without a broken leg I must say LOL

Love you all!! Kisses!!

Here are pictures of my adventures:

Come on mom hurry up, I want to see everything!!!YAY!!!Does this street never ends? I think I’m kind of tiredOn our way home!!I see our house mom, yay, yay!!

PCOS and a 23 year old student

This new post is going to be about a situation that’s a huge part of my life right now and not in a good way.  This is going to be kinda long too but I want to tell everyone about it, so if you know someone who has been diagnosed with this or even you have it you can relate and even talk about it with me. Also know that you are not alone in this. This is a very stressful and hard condition to have in many ways and as the years go by I have learned to accept it and love me for who I am, with imperfections and all. I know that as I get older this will get worse so I have to be strong and ready for whatever it comes.

I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) when I was 18 years old by a gynecologist, Since that day I have been struggling with it and trying to get it under control which has been very hard. If you don’t know what PCOS is here is a good link with many information about it: http://www.womenshealth.gov/faq/polycystic-ovary-syndrome.cfm#j

It was not until this last year that all my symptoms really got worse. I was having troubles with: my mood swings, acne, oily skin, dandruff, weight gain, anxiety, depression, sleep apnea and many other things Im really to ashamed to write about. It really has been hell and I think it was thanks to a change in my medications. Since I was diagnosed with PCOS I was taking Yazmin (birth control pills) which my body eventually got so use to that it just stopped working, my doctor change it to Yaz (which made things even worse) and then I decided to have a second opinion. I went to a endocrinologist and he prescribed me provera 10 mg for 7 days every month. This just made things even worse. Two weeks ago I went again and explained to him that I was even missing my periods again. With that said he told me I had to go back to Yazmin pills which where the ones that once worked fine. He also told me that when they stop working again that I had to go back to provera and so on. I just hope that with Jazmin everything goes back to normal again and I just stop being miserable at all times.

This really sucks!! -_- it’s like a never ending story. My self-esteem has been damaged thanks to all this. I feel sick all the time and everyday I see a new symptoms. Also, this has affected my social skills with people. But I have to say this has taught me a lot of things in life, I have family and friends who love me for me and not because of my looks. Also this has helped me to grow and understand people going trough similar situations. Most of all I have learned to accept that I’m beautiful no matter what and that people really should stop looking into Hollywood and more into what’s really beautiful in a person. Our world is a beautiful place and each day we learn something new but if all you do is wrapped yourself into what society wants out of you, you are never going to be happy.

Here are some great PCOS Awareness photos I found:

Oh well, ladies and gents I hope I didn’t bored you LOL

Love you all!!
