Now here is a glamorous dog! You would think she was born with a silver bone in her mouth, but it’s really quite the opposite. Meet my second grand dog, Violet Buxbaum, a pit bull from the depths of Indiana that my daughter found on the Pet Finder website. Of course she asked me first if she should even adopt any dog other than a Shar-Pei, but from reading all my emails, everyone pretty much knows I give in too easily, especially when an animal is concerned.
At first I was taken back by the mere idea of a different dog in our family, much less the thought that my daughter was in love with a pit bull. Well it didn’t take long—about a minute passed, and we were in the car on a long ride to meet the canine who my daughter already named Violet.
We walked into the Animal Welfare League and Violet was at the door, acting as the meet and greet dog. She was alarmingly a lot larger than she appeared in the copious amount of photos the shelter supplied to us. My daughter took her for a trial walk, but I knew they were meant for each other. With her cow-esque coloring and very feminine looks, I knew Violet would fit in to the new world she was about to be a part of.
Once we cleaned the pee stains off her tail, and recovered from a few ailments, she became the beauty my daughter always saw in her. She goes with her to work every morning and can be seen shopping at all the Gold Coast stores on the weekends. Her picture has been in many magazines, including Elle, Lonny and CS. Violet can also be found on many a blog.
Wherever she goes , she makes friends because that’s just the way she is—she’s most lovable dog I have ever met. Since Violet is in the design world, she has different taste in furniture than her Shar-Pei cousins. When she comes to the store she prefers our sleeker looking furniture. She loves high style and the color black.
Here are Violet’s picks.
- Hope you like my picks! Love, Violet
