My name is Sheree, I’m 31 and live in Darling downs (Toowoomba)
I started Bonnies Bandanas for fun (after buying Bonnie her own wardrobe and travelling a 6hr round trip to pick it up, I needed to fill it with some doggy products) I taught myself to sew earlier this year - my mum hasn’t seen her machine in over 6months 🤭.
Bambi (pic 3) was my impulse buy from pets paradise in #bankstown back in 2006 when I was 20, after my family had moved up to QLD and I was living by myself in a unit in South West Sydney.
She’s such a human dog and gets heavy anxiety when I leave the house, even for a few minutes, but she would rather stay inside throughout the day and sleep then curl up on my lap for cuddles, she doesn’t think she’s a dog at all. - we have moved from Bankstown to Canberra then to QLD to now where we currently live.
On 28/5/16 Bonnie (pic 1) was born at around 8am that morning she was the last born of 3 from the litter and had to be revived by the vet as she was stuck in the birth canal - Bonnie was given to me as a gift from my bestest friend of 15+ years that I would gladly call her my sister. Before Bon I couldn’t comprehend why people were so obsessed with them, well now.... I have two 😂 and if I could, I’d have many more.
Benson (pic 2) was born on the 10/9/17 a litter of 9 but one didn’t survive 😞. He joined the family 2 weeks ago and has settled in well. Just waiting for the vaccinations to kick in so he can go out adventuring with Bonnie and I.
Before Bonnie I had nothing in common with people, I didn’t want to leave the house to “socialise”, that was until I met like minded Corgi fans and have formed a friendship both personally and online. Bonnie makes me a better person and I challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone, and into a dog friendly zone - where I can be myself and not be judged. 🐾 I treat them like they’re my own children (I don’t have kids) - and wish pupternity was a thing cause I want to spend more time with Benson to get a head start on his training
