We started the idea of sharing the stories of our Ambassadors and Models as a way for us & you to get to know them better; and it has been a joy. It is so wonderful to see how the connection with your dog can make you connect with people all over the world! It really is a magical thing. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do and here we leave you with Bettina's story of how having Bruce helped her reach her true potential :)
" I've been giving a lot of thought to this story...
Ever since I was a little girl I've been dreaming about having a dog. My mom often found me daydreaming and drawing yellow doggies on my homework.
In 2012 I moved to Canada, leaving my family and beloved friends behind, in hopes of pursuing my career in photography. I went through all stages of homesickness, and wasn't sure if I wanted to stay at all. I was lonely, uncertain and unhappy. Then one day I just made the call. That's it. I'm going to get a dog. I'm going to have a family at the other side of the world, stop being sad and really start my own life. And that's how the cutest little labrador puppy, named Bruce, entered my life. That was the moment when I started calling Canada my home, I felt like I really belong here and my business started thriving. All thanks to Bruce. He became my family, my home and my best friend. All in one.
I still to the day tear up a little when I think about this, haha."
