A BKLYN gal who got her second “chance” at being a dogmom again!
I am proud native Brooklynite, which is probably considered a rare species nowadays. Being from Brooklyn is one thing, I also live and work in Brooklyn. Capturing all things Brooklyn inspired me to start an IG account. When I rescued Chance, I took him everywhere and ended up exploring the city through his puppy eyes and my lens. I soon discovered Chance loves to pose and get attention when modeling. Rapidly, (like many new “dogmoms”) my feed filled up with pictures of only Chance and …. POOF! TheBKLYNDog was born!
About the person behind the camera…..
Besides being a wife and a dog momager, I’m a designer, entrepreneur and rescue advocate. I like to switch it up and add other hats every now and again so stay tuned! Making things from scratch has always been a passion of mine. My wedding was practically a massive Pinterest board as everything was DIY! Throughout my own professional career I have worked in Fashion, Architecture and Finance. Working in those fields have prepared me create my own path.
Over the last few years, I found that I had a lot to share on social media. I never thought to start a blog…. but here I am. It makes the most sense to own your own personal space. This is a place to share more of my life in Brooklyn with Chance all while having fun and spreading joy. When you visit the site, I hope you’ll find some smiles, lots of laughs, maybe some tears, but you’ll always learn something new and mostly importantly share the love!
Chance the Rescue
Chance is incredibly affectionate and fiercely protective. He has these expressive eyes that has a keen ability to communicate all his needs in just a look. It’s probably a testament to our bond.
Chance has accomplished so much now at 4 years old. I often take a second to think about everything he has done being still so young. I knew he was exceptionally special when he was already potty trained by 5 months old (with a perfect record to this very day!), off leash trained by 6 months, first went viral at 8 months then again at a year old. He landed his first big commercial gig right before turning 2 years old and now on a TV show under his belt, The Pack on Amazon Prime last year when he was only 3.5 years old. Being the youngest and smallest dog in the whole competition was no easy feat for my little guy!
What makes Chance so special? He is not only my ESA (Emotional Support Animal) but he is my second “chance” to be a dog-mom. Which is why I named him, Chance. After losing our first dog Pepito suddenly to congestive heart failure; Chance came into my life when I needed him the most. He saved me in more ways than one. He is the youngest dog I ever owned but quickly became my soul mate and recently this sweet boy has inspired me to launch our shop!
