Dearest Listeners,

I would like to apologize for not being able to join the ladies for this month’s podcast. On Saturday morning around 3 am (the day before we were set to record) My husband and I lost one of our beloved Dachshunds, Bug. If you have listened to any of our podcasts or follow me on social media, you have probably gathered that my dogs are more important to me than most other things in my life. I know not everyone will understand and that is completely ok, but to us, we lost a member of our family. Bug was born with special needs and we always knew that unfortunately, his life with us would be cut short. But that never stopped us from loving him and giving him the best life we possibly could. I feel blessed to have been the one to raise and love him. He taught me things that you can’t learn from books or school. He taught me compassion, patience, and unconditional love. We will always miss him, and right now we have a Bug sized hole in our lives that is going to take some time to close. Again I apologize for my absence and thank you for understanding. I will be back next month ready to be my normal weird self, whether you all like it or not! <3

All my love,
Lady J
