Several people have asked how Tipsy Bully got started, whether or not I own a bulldog, etc. So I thought I'd share in a new blog post. This tale begins with Toni (yep, that's me!), a woman whose life was transformed in 2017 by a four-legged friend named Remy, an adorable rescue bulldog. From the moment Toni saw Remy's picture on the rescue's website, it was love at first sight. Remy was more than just a pet; he was Toni's first dog, her companion, and her introduction to the deep, unconditional love of bulldogs.
For two beautiful years, Toni and Remy shared a bond that only a dog lover can truly understand. However, life took an unexpected turn when Remy suddenly passed away from spinal meningitis. Toni was left heartbroken, mourning the loss of her beloved friend, thinking she could never love another dog as much as she loved Remy.
But fate had other plans. A few months after Remy's passing, the rescue organization reached out with astonishing news. The same family that had given up Remy was now giving up another bulldog. Though hesitant and still nursing a broken heart, Toni agreed to meet the dog. The moment she laid eyes on him, it was as if the universe was giving her a second chance at love. This new bulldog, bearing a striking resemblance to Remy, instantly won over Toni's heart with his sweetness. She named him Huxley and took him home, where he quickly became her new best friend and a balm to her grieving heart.
It was through her experiences with Remy and Huxley that Toni's love for bulldogs deepened and her desire to support bulldog rescue organizations solidified. Inspired by the joy, the laughter, and even the tears shared with her bulldog companions, Toni envisioned a place that would embody this love. Thus, Tipsy Bully was born – a whimsical realm where the charm of bulldogs and the spirit of celebration intertwine.
At Tipsy Bully, every product tells a story – a story of a woman's love for her bulldogs and her commitment to give back. From the stylish bulldog-themed drinkware to cozy apparel, each item is a tribute to Toni's journey with Remy and Huxley. And, in honor of her furry companions, a portion of every purchase goes to local English bulldog rescue organizations, supporting the cause close to Toni's heart.
So, as you explore Tipsy Bully's collection, remember that you're not just indulging in a product. You're becoming a part of a story that celebrates love, resilience, and the joyous bond between humans and their bulldog friends. And with each purchase, you're helping to write happy endings for other bulldogs like Remy and Huxley.
Toni's journey with her bulldogs has been a blend of laughter, tears, and unforgettable memories. It’s this journey that has shaped Tipsy Bully, turning it into more than just a brand – it's a heartwarming mission fueled by the love of bulldogs.
