First off…let me answer some questions…

Cori (our dear friend from college) asked (in jest, I’m sure), when we plan on having some babies. Well, actually…I am pregnant.

JUST KIDDING! No babies for awhile. Maybe in a year or two? Right now I’m enjoying being an aunt to my awesome nieces and nephew and a mama to my fur babies. Besides, I still have some goals I need to complete first, such as finishing grad school and moving someplace new. Speaking of moving, Anita (mother of the handsome Pug and the beautiful Maize), asked if we would ever consider moving to Chicago. We love Chicago – delicious food, endless entertainment opportunities, and Sociabull dogs.  What we don’t love so much? Freezing cold winters and blustery winds (we get enough of that in Kansas City)! As of right now, my sights are on a certain northwestern city where we vacationed for our third anniversary, but anything is possible, and I’m always open to suggestions. Now, on to the giveaway…

You all remember that little sweater shop my mom started just a few months ago, right? Since October my mom has made almost 40 sweaters, and she’s not stopping anytime soon! Her sweaters are keeping pups warm all over the U.S. – in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois (you Chicagoans are our largest percentage of customers), and many more! Here is a sampling of her work…you may recognize some famous faces in the group…

In addition to keeping your pups warm, 50% of the proceeds from the sweaters go to animal rescue (including helping a certain foster dog from this blog)! Can’t get much better than that! So, today’s giveaway, if you haven’t already guessed is… one custom Tiennot Knits sweater for your pooch! Here are the details on how to enter:
