a girl and her dog: angie + kramer.

remember this post from a while back?

well, it basically helped shape "a girl and her dog", a new blog series i'm super excited to kick off today. each month, i'm inviting someone i met through instagram, and her beloved dog, to share a story about their friendship. they may be humorous, touching and moving, but most of all, i hope it shows just how strong a bond can be between woman and dog. 

i'm so happy to have angie and kramer to kick things off. angie is one of the first people i met on instagram. i loved seeing all her incredible vintage collections and home re-modeling adventures, but one day she met a dog.

here is angie and kramer's story. 
the girl: angie wallace 
the dog: kramer {possibly a lab/boxer mix or some type of pit bull mix}
favorite treats: peanut m&m's for angie & milk bones for kramer  
from: illinois 
find them on instagram @awallfisch

my name is angie, and i am from illinois. who is that handsome dog you ask? well, that's kramer. in my opinion, the best dog in the world. he had been abandoned by his previous owners and was left on the street. luckily, he found my husband and i; he found his true home. 

full of love and excitement, he brings pure joy to my life everyday. always ready for an adventure, he is also a professional cuddle buddy. kramer is the brother to 4 cats, who he lets run the show! he loves instrumental music. we have so many videos of him singing. if i'm ever having a downer day, i watch a video of kramer getting his groove on and perk right back up!

he reminds me that unconditional love is a privilege to experience, and i couldn't be more grateful. i can only hope that others are fortunate enough to have such a loyal best friend.
thanks so much angie and kramer!
you can see more of their adventure together here (@awallfisch).

  7. What a great idea and series soooo looking forward it! I should do one with cats. In November an 8 week old kitten showed up in our driveway meowing her head off. Well after three hours of my neighbor and I trying to catch her we got her in a cat carrier and inside. We were afraid she was going to be eaten by racoons during the night. At first we were going to take her to the shelter but she busted out of the carrier during the night (it was broken) and was running around all over the place. Well that was that, we kept her. And today, poor thing, she is at the vet having surgery--she is being spayed. She is only 6 months old but has gone in to heat twice already. It will be tough now but she will be much happier in the long run.
