Introducing Charlie Darling

Hello everyone!

Preston and I are now officially Mr. & Mrs. Darling! We have been loving married life so far (although, for the most part, it doesn’t feel too different!).

I cannot WAIT to post wedding pics for everyone! It’s going to be AMAZING!

But, as many of you know, Preston and I had a roommate who moved out (when we got married- very amicable!) but my beloved Harvey was Jeremy’s pup and my heart broke when he had to leave me.

And because I have absolutely no chill and needed to fill the four legged void in my life, we got hitched on Saturday, slept on Sunday, and adopted a dog on Monday.

Yep. We went to an animal rescue, found Charlie, and immediately fell in love with his little scruffy face.


Here’s what we’ve learned about Charlie so far:

He’s a rescue – but I’m not sure from what he was rescued from.

He’s a Morkie Poo – He’s a mix of a Maltese, Yorkie, & Poodle. He’s a mini-mutt!

He’s ALL the colors. His body is a mix of white, gray and apricot. His ears are brown and black, and his tail is black. He’s a calico pup!

He weighs 8lbs and definitely does NOT fit into XS dog costumes.



Charlie’s Likes:

Being held constantly

Getting pet right on his his little face


Perching on top of the couch

Car Rides



Sleeping in

Tennis Balls & his rainbow caterpillar toy

Licking your nose

Growling at the mailman

Running around the dog park

Playing with the neighbor dogs

Basking on the porch

Sitting and sleeping on my shoulder

Wearing a tiny dog sweater

Sitting on my lap every time I go to the bathroom

Stealing hearts


Charlie’s Dislikes

Not getting a bite of your food

When new people are close enough for him to smell but not close enough to say hello

That Mia (the collie across the hall!) is WAY faster than him.

The trashcan

Too tall of grass when playing fetch

When I close the front door with us on opposite sides for any reason

Lawn mowers


What I love about Charlie…

everything. Absolutely everything.
