Hello? Do you remember me? My name is Julie and I used to have a blog.
It’s been a while.
Life has been, well, weird that past few months. My dogs and I were attacked by a loose pit bull on December 7th. It was by far the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. The legal and criminal situation is ongoing, so I can’t write about too much at this point.
In a very brief nutshell, we were minding our own business going on our morning walk early that morning, when a pit bull ran across the street and charged us. It got my boy dog Henry first, so I threw myself on top of him to get the dog off. At that point the dog bit my hand, biting off one fingernail and leaving permanent scars on my hand from where his teeth punctured the skin. He then attacked my girl dog, Lady, and got her the worst. At this point he was mauling her, and was too strong for me to overpower so I was left lying in the street screaming for help. It was the most helpless thing to see my sweet little girl get attacked and to hear her shrieking.
We are all thankfully almost totally recovered. Lady needed extensive reconstructive surgery on her stomach. They had to graft her stomach with pig tissue, which makes me giggle to think my dog is part pig. While I was at my house with the paramedics, police, animal control and fire department, my sister and brother in law took Lady to the first vet. They didn’t tell me it at the time, but the vet told them she had no chance of living and put her on morphine to keep her comfortable. Once they got her stable, they referred us to a surgeon in West LA that would be able to do surgery. Here is a video of her recovering from surgery, and a video of her coming home from the hospital. It still is surreal. Lady is having a lot of trouble walking on my hardwood floor since she lost a lot of strength in her legs, but thankfully there are products out there that give her traction.
But… that is not why I’m posting today.
I wanted to pop in to say that I’ve rebranded and relaunched my interior design business! You can now find my business site at labriinteriors.com. I’m hoping to transition to mostly e-design, which meant a switch from wordpress to squarespace.
So, if you are in need of interior design help, please reach out! If you want to be kept in the loop, please sign up for the newsletter on the contact page.
I don’t know what my plans are for this blog–I’m definitely going to be blogging about interiors on my new site, so keep an eye out for that.
That’s all for now!
