IMG_4572So today is a picture of Chauncey and I on a hike David and me took him on a little bit ago. I got to NYC for Fashion Week yesterday and David is meeting me out here Wednesday and then we are headed to Europe…… for six whole weeks.

I have some opportunities out there as well as a few collaborations and we kind of decided to make a trip out of it. Β However, every night around 9:30 when Chauncey gets sleepy and comes to hit my laptop or phone to tell me its time to cuddle…. I start crying and googling ‘will my dog remember me after being gone for 6 weeks?’ which then leads to watching YouTube videos of people reuniting with their dogs.. which then makes me cry more and try to call the airlines to cancel the trip. Haha.. David will see us cuddling and turn on music or something to get me to laugh because he knows its coming!!! I am such a baby I miss my pup already.

Luckily, we have amazing family and Chauncey lovvves our nieces and nephews – they came and stayed with us for two weeks and he had a ball. So David is driving him to California and Chaunce will be staying with David’s sisters and their cute families. He will be in heaven. I will just be missing him lots and lots.Β But despite the breakdowns and feeling like a bad ‘dog mom’ …. I really am so thrilled for our trip.. months of planning have gone into it and our itinerary is filled with beautiful cities and amazing sights.

Be sure to follow on IG (@amberfillerup) to see pics from Fashion Week and our trip to Europe! xx

Here are some of my favorite pieces I am lusting over right now…

    My pup stayed with my parents for 6 weeks while I was gone for school this spring. I felt like a horrible mom – I even missed his birthday!! :( And the reunion was SO anticlimactic…he definitely let me know how he felt about me being gone for 6 weeks. But despite him more or less ignoring me when I got home, he didn’t let me get more than about 3 feet away from him, and the next day he was my best buddy again. Don’t worry too much – Chauncey will for sure remember you!!! So you make sure to have as much fun as he will. :)

    • amber September 9, 2013 at 7:15 am Permalink

      Aw well I am glad I am not the only one who has left their pup! I honestly feel so horrible leaving him!! But thanks that made me feel a little better!

I went to visit for the weekend last week and couldn’t wait to see them, They totally remembered me! And I started crying cause I was so happy! and then of course I cried when I left to come home to utah, cause I miss them so much!! I love being a dog mom, haha

    • amber September 13, 2013 at 11:26 am Permalink

      Kayla!! Ah okay that makes me feel better! My brother and sister in law keep sending videos of Chauncey playing with the kids and it makes me happy but then I just start crying haha it is the saddest thing leaving them! Sorry you had to leave yours again! We are in the same boat :( love all my fellow dog moms haha :) xo
