Today is a sad day for me. I'm currently living in Austria with my Fiance, I moved here after I fell on some hard times back in Los Angeles. Before I left Los Angeles, I left my two precious dog children SID VICIOUS & DAHLIA RED in the care of dear friends and family. It was a hard decision to make believe me. I wanted to bring them with me, but finding temporary homes for them was what I felt was in their best interest.
Though the two of them had to be split up, they both have been in the care of trusted people who are close to me. I have always had the intention to come back to California within a year, and have hoped to have my kids returned to me.
Dahlia hs been as happy as a pig in mud in her new home with my sisters. But it has been hard to get a hold of the friends who have cared for Sid since I have been gone, and I hadn't been told any details about his well being or whereabouts aside from some vauge info.

So, earlier this week I put out a plea on facebook to my friends back home to help me find out what has been going on with Sid.
I have had this terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach for about a week that something was terribly wrong, and well, lets just say I have pretty on point maternal insticts.
This morning I woke to the terrible news that my sweet baby Sid (10 year old toy poodle), after having been bounced around to 3 different homes in the past 7 months, has passed away. I don't know the details,I was a bit too in shock to ask. All I know is that he was well cared for, but got very sick.
I can not describe the guilt and pain I feel. That pup has been with me through the hardest times of my life, has licked away my tears, and has been the biggest comfort when I needed him most.
Not to mention he was my initial inspiration for Gutter Bones. If it wasn't for Sid, Gutter Bones wouldn't even exist.

So here Sid buddy, this is for you, all of it. You will be missed.

Pit Bulls For The Blind!

Let me start by saying that I am a huge lover of Pit Bulls, and a huge advocate for crushing the "bad rep" that the pit bull breed has developed. With that said, a few days ago I was delighted when I came across a story about The Main Line Animal Rescue, a rescue that is pioneering a new program to help those in need at The Royer Greaves School for the Blind in Pennsylvania. I think what they are doing is great. Hopefully we will start to see some Pits as seeing eye dogs in the future =). The Main Line Animal Rescue will for sure be our next donation recipient!

So here's what Gutter Bones is all about

Gutter Bones is a line of apparel, accessories, and more for our faithful, four-legged, furry friends. Heavily inspired by music, each piece is 100% hand made. We hold strong to our love for dogs, and our love for music. Any band merch we use in our designs, we pay retail value for cause we believe in supporting the music that inspires what we do at GB. We also donate a portion of ALL profits to dog rescues, because sometimes the smallest contribution can save a life. Even if you can't adopt them all, the least you can do is help them get a second chance. =)
