Today I’m introducing you to another one of my blog friends who I had the pleasure to meet in person at Haven. Please meet Brandi from “Don’t Disturb This Groove” and her three adorable dogs. Brandi is just as sweet and amazing in reality as she comes across on her blog. If you want to get to know her better then you should read the story of how she chose her blog title which I absolutely love and knowing the meaning behind it makes me love the title even more (click HERE).
Hello Cuckoo 4 Design readers! I’m Brandi and I blog over at Don’t Disturb This Groove. I adore Julia and her blog. I had the pleasure of meeting her this summer at Haven. Her home and style are gorgeous. Someday my house wants to grow up and be like hers. I’m here today to share my three girls with you. This has been such a fun series! I’ve enjoyed reading about other bloggers and their pets.
I’ve always loved dogs. We had a few growing up. After graduating from high school I worked at an animal hospital and spent many hours volunteering at an animal shelter. Caring for my dogs seems natural.
One day while volunteering at the shelter, I noticed Princess. She was so tiny, yet full of energy. At the time we were living in an apartment. Her small size was perfect for small-space living.
She turned 8 in April. If the front door is open for too long Princess will seize the opportunity and run out.
She cries whenever my husband leaves the house and starts wagging her tail as he’s pulling in the drive way. My husband taught her how to dance. They have a special bond.
She’s a lively, clever little dog. She hates thunder and fireworks and will tremble and hide. She’s the Alpha of the three. She thinks she rules our house!
We bought our house in June 2008. A few months later we adopted our second dog.
When we adopted this little girl we changed her name from Daphne to Bella.
Changing her name was the easy part of her adoption. Training a puppy all over again, not so much!
Training our dogs taught us a lot about consistency and patience.
She has grown to be more sweet every. day. of. her. life.
Bella turned 6 in May.
She loves to catch treats in her mouth and lie by our side. Her bark can be loud and intimidating, but all she wants is love and affection. I’m so glad she’s mine.
Then one afternoon I was browsing through Pet Finder. Just looking, not expecting to find a puppy, fall in love with her and bring her home. We had 2 dogs, so the thought of adding another didn’t quite excite my husband.
Once we went to the shelter to meet her, he was all for it though. My husband is a cat person; who grew up with cats now shares a house with 3 dogs!
Sasha is 2 now and still acts like a puppy; onery, but obedient.
She’s a Rottweiler-Doberman mix and a few other breeds added in for extra cuteness!
This year she experienced her first snow. She loved it! It was comical to watch. She would eat it, then roll around in it.
She’s always by my side to keep me company. A true, loyal companion.
They’re too busy begging for treats,
Our girls bring our family so much joy. Most of my friends and family think I’m crazy to have 3. As much as they drive us absolutely bonkers at times, we adore each of them and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Thank you kindly, Julia for inviting me to be apart of your series.

I don’t think you are crazy at all for having 3 dogs Brandi, it actually makes me love you even more. Especially that you also volunteered at a shelter. I look up to people like that. I mentally couldn’t handle that. It would crush me and make me hate humans and I would probably start hoarding animals at home. Also thank you for your sweet words 🙂
Aren’t her three girls adorable? I told Brandi that Sasha’s teeth crack me up.
So my friends, head on over to Brandi’s and show her some love. You might want to check out her No-Sew Dog Bow Ties and her Flower Dog Collars as well.
Tschüß and have a great weekend.
