Sausage life.

door stop

Since becoming a proud owner of my little (literally miniature) sausage dog Oscar, I have struggled to walk past sausage dog related items and not buy them. Like the time I walked past this floral dachshund shaped door stop in Tesco, did I need a door stop? Nope. Could I leave this cutie on the shelf? No way.

 I was over the moon when Brat and Suzie sent me this adorable skater, sausage dog print sweater (link here) It’s so cosy, you’ll often find me at home in leggings, this jumper, my hair in a top knot and Oscar on my knee. Now that it’s August that means summer is almost on it’s way out and I for one cannot wait to embrace the chunky knits, ankle boots, scarves and over sized sweaters. What do you think?


How could I not include a picture of Oscar in this post?! In this photo he is fixated on food, as per usual. This dog has the most amazing personality, I often share what he gets up too on his own instagram account ‘‘ so I don’t bore you all to death with sausage spam on my own / personal account. Feel free to check it out πŸ™‚ I LOVE seeing pictures of your mini dachshunds / any dog whatsoever. Anyone else literally stop whatever you’re doing when you see a dog in the street? I’ve interrupted people on many occasions by shouting ‘awww look at that dog’ whether we are driving, walking, dogs and puppies are my weakness. #crazydogladyforlife

    I have been nagging at my boyfriend about getting a sausage dog for about a year now (I think he'll relent soon!) and pictures of Oscar only fuel my obsession! x

    Oscar is so cute! I wish I had a dog, too!

    Oscar is so adorable, I love that look dogs give you when they want food, it says 'look I'm sitting here staring instead of jumping on you and stealing it, I think you should give me the food now.'.

    I interrupt people too to say 'look at the dog', I can't help it, I'm a crazy cat me dog lady.

    Aw Oscar is too cute! Look at those cute puppy dog eyes πŸ™‚ I find myself picking up little things like that, I don't need them but I can't just keep walking once I see them.

    So cute! And sausage dog themed items are really sweet too. As for stopping when you see dogs in the street- it's often the other way round for me, I get stopped all the time by people wanting to look at my Jack Russell dog! I will be introducing her on my blog sometime in the future πŸ™‚

    I too can't wait for A/W to once again be able to embrace the chunky knits and oversized sweaters, that sausage dog one is so cute! Oscar has the cutest little eyes, I'm not surprised you're so in love with him! x

    Love the door stop, but the original one is even cuter. You have such an amazing dog. I'm just as excited than you about the autumn clothes. I love scarves and knitwear. It gives you such a warm feeling inside.

    Aww I love that Sausage Dog door stop, really tempted to pick it up & put it away in a safe place until we move into our new place, it's soooo cute! Oscar is adorable & I can totally relate to what you said about stopping to admire dogs haha, I've actually screamed out loud a few times before when I've seen another pug, luckily other pug owners seem to be just as crazy when it comes to seeing other pugs & I'm glad you're the same too haha πŸ˜‰

    I was never really excited about sausage dogs, and then I saw Oscar and now I'm in love with his puppy eyes. I totally understand your need to buy nik naks, my own candle obsession is getting out of hand.
