My oldest daughter was going to be a veterinarian. She always loved animals. When Secret first came to live with us, she was so tiny, small enough to fit in the palm of Whitney's hands. She slept in the room with Whitney and cried all night that first day.
Growing a Business is Like Having a New Puppy
You have to come up with a name for both. My first dog leash company was called Celebrity Leashes.
They both require some training. I had to be trained how to use a sewing machine.
Puppies and businesses are unpredictable. I could never have predicted I would love what I do so much.
My youngest daughter, the pastry chef. Jayda, and Secret were BFF's until the end. She was the one who dressed Secret up in her doll clothes, painted her nails, and let her sit at her tea parties. When Secret was about 14 years old, she developed a tumor on her belly. Although, we had it removed, she didn't live much longer. It was Jayda who found her unresponsive at 3am.
My fur daughter. She took me on long walks. She was a fierce, but loving protector. She modeled all of my leash designs.
We are so grateful to have had her in our lives.
