And so it begins.

...but really, it's been going on for some time now. My love for the city of Boston as well as the breed of dog that carries its namesake. But before we get to all of that, let's back up.

Welcome! My name is Brooklynne, and as much as the title might make it sound like I do, I no longer live in Boston. However, I used to. And in my cherished and fondly-remembered time there, my husband and I purchased a black and white bundle of love known as a Boston terrier puppy. Cliche, right? Get over it. Thus began my love affair with the city as well as the breed, as me and Toby (aforementioned bundle), discovered Beantown together.

We ventured daily into the centuries-old city, so filled with historical wonder, and soaked up the culture, the sights and the smells (which were varied and not all great, I assure you). But in just two short years, and 1/8th of Toby's life, we had to leave.

So now, we're in Dallas, but we're both still Bostonians at heart. We added to our Boston collection last year when we purchased Olivia, a smaller version of Toby, who has been a delightful addition to our little family.

I'm starting this blog for a number of reasons:

1. I like reading blogs. I'm also a writer, thus, it follows to write a blog.
2. I long to post my photos somewhere besides Facebook.

but most importantly...

3. I have recently started fostering for the Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas. Every couple of weeks, I have a new pug-nosed visitor rotating through my house. I love each new one just as much as the last, and I don't want to forget them once they go off to their new homes! Also, who doesn't love looking at pictures of cute puppies? Or maybe horses are your thing. To each his own.

This will likely be a catch-all for my life updates, but who can tell now? We've only just begun.


  1. You forgot to mention your dashing husband. :)

  2. Yay! I'm so glad I finally found your new blog. Love all the puppy pix. I am so not a horse person (as in, I'm actually allergic). Keep it up!
