Since we’re coming off the week I left the original Colin at a park 6 years ago, I thought this would be an appropriate #tunartuesdays post. Don’t work folks, Colin was returned to us two days later because I put up missing persons signs in the park. Haha. #tunainterpretations of these two little buddies by @in13pieces

He’s so peculiar.
And I LOVE that about him. 🙋‍♀️🥰😍

Even before marrying my English husband, I’ve always dreamed of visiting Cornwall, so last month we decided to go as a family. We booked our hotel, @artistresidence #penzance, through our favourite travel website, @thepetspyjamas, who are experts in the dog-friendly travel industry. They know ALLL the best places to holiday with your dog! They recommended Penzance for us, which is STUNNING, but guess what Toons wanted to do most of the time...you’re looking at it 👆. Thankfully for him, Artist Residence Penzance was THE COOLEST, so I don’t blame him one bit! For more on our stay there, head over to @thetravelingtuna! #shrivelneck

Today marks the 6-year anniversary of this sign posting, aka “The Unfortunate Day That I Lost Colin”. I left the original Colin at a park, and I couldn’t find him anywhere so I posted up a “Missing Persons” sign and he was actually returned 2 days later. 💃 Moral of the story, if you forget your dog’s beloved toy at a public place, post a missing persons sign no matter how ridiculous it may seem. It works!

My favourite photo of Tuna is of him lying in the grass, making a strange face (of course.) This is the painted #tunainterpretations version of that said photo, and @dawgpainter did a phenomenal job recreating it! #tunartuesdays

This is his “please don’t make me get out of bed. It’s only 4 o’clock” face. Seriously, folks, he’s still in bed. #mondaze

This is their every morning. Piled on top of their dad for cuddling time, and I’m usually somewhere in the cuddle but someone had to take the photo 🙋‍♀️ My sweetest, Ian. You’re a precious gift to all three of us! Your love abounds for our kiddos, and they adore you in return. Witnessing their adoration for you makes me overwhelmed with joy! You’re the kindest husband and father. Thank you for loving us with excellence! We love you the most! #happyfathersday

Due to an unforeseen family circumstance, we are not going to be able to attend @petconofficial next Saturday in LA. I am very sorry to those who were excited to meet Tuna 😢 It makes me so sad to make this announce because I don’t like to disappoint people but in this particular situation, it’s very important that we make family our priority. PetCon is going to be a great event with lots of other amazing animals so I hope that those of you attending have a lot of fun! If you are traveling a long distance to meet Tuna, please DM me.

That yellow hot mess of a thang is Diane. She’s been around since the original Colin and she’s Tuna’s girlfriend. He loves her and Grace does too! Ps: Tuna ALWAYS “growls” when playing with his toys no matter who is playing this him. Grace is not in danger of being bit so please do not express your concerns. That’s his way of playing. I promise. Check out more of their cuteness in his stories.

Last month, we went to NY for the 11th annual @shortyawards and we stayed at @innsidenewyork while we were in town for the weekend. Not sure if I mentioned this in a previous post, but he won the “best animal” category so we went out and celebrated! This was him the morning after the awards show. 😬 He just wanted to stay in the cosy bed but we had to get on a flight to London.

That fine young man with a mohawk and his tongue out is Ernie. He’s the first (someone else’s) dog I’ve ever wanted to own as my pet. He belongs to my friend, @j.cathell, and when I laid eyes on him over 10 years ago, I adored him. Now that I live back in Atlanta, we’ve reconnected and I’ve re-fallen in love with him because as you can see, he’s a lovable weirdo, just like Toons! We will be babysitting him for a week towards the end of June, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. 📸: @jen_wright_photography
