Alexander McQueen Leaves Thousands to Dogs

Last year the fashion industry lost the amazingly talented Alexander McQueen and today it has been revealed that not only did he have a huge talent, but also a huge heart. He left large sums of money to all around him including his 2 housekeepers but has also left £50000 to his 3 beloved English Bull Terriers, Minter, Juice & Callum. Here he is back in 2001 with Juice who looks absolutely gorgeous!

The money has been left for their future 'upkeep' and although we have seen rather a lot of criticism within the media for the sum of money left to as some say 'just dogs', we think it's lovely. He loved them & wanted to ensure that they are well looked after and continue to be loved now that he is gone without expecting the responsibility to fall on anyone else. We would do the same if we had the funds. And, after-all he had an estimated £16m fortune at the time he sadly died last year and also has left over £164000 to charity - including Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and the Blue Cross. In an interview with Arena Homme + in 2009 he said:

My dogs are the only thing in the world I really trust.” 

RIP lovely soul - we hope you have found peace & I will forever LOVE your beautiful collections! x x

Amy Winehouse 14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011

Yesterday we were shocked & deeply saddened by the tragic death of the dazzlingly talented Amy Winehouse. Yet another one of our brightest sparks extinguished by the darkness of addiction. It is thought today that more likely she died from a seizure after drinking and not an overdose but that these seizures were a side-effect of the damage done by years of such serious drug use. Such a talented & also very young woman - she would have been in my school year - she was also a unique fashion icon with her big hair, cute little pumps and trend-setting eyeliner. I pray she finds some well-deserved peace at last in the big recording studio in the sky with all those other great talents taken from us too early.....Cobain, Hendrix, Morrison, Presley, Monroe, Dean, Joplin, Lennon, Aaliyah, Lisa Left-Eye... Rest in Peace lovely x x

Lion Dog Friday Funny & Flu

Hello Puppy Lovers!! We haven't been updating as much anywhere over the last couple of weeks as I have been looking like this:
with a monster summer-flu! Lols! (I really do have those bunny slippers too! :P) After getting all the orders out have just been soooo tired out that I kept dozing off before could blog/tweet/facebook *blush* But am glad to say am back now with a brilliant Friday Funny sent to me by Lee's mama, Lorraine...

"Subject: Lion

This is the story of a Garage Owner in the East of Northampton who gave his dog 
a haircut.                

He  was sick and tired of thugs breaking into his  garage shop to steal tools, etc.  
So he came up with this idea to give his Woofter a haircut.
He put the word out that  he had a new Mexican Lion that would attack anyone who
to break  in or climb his fence.  
Would-be thieves saw the "Lion" from a distance and fled the scene.

The  dog's  probably trying to figure out why his  head's so hot and 
his arse is so  cold"
Lols! It isn't true of course  but the pic is... the poor lil guy!! But he really does make a pawsome lion!! Hope it didn't take too long to grow back on his little bot! x x

But we did take a minute to check out our American cousins in their Stars & Stripes & here are some of our faves:
