Blog A Day Challenge – The Meaning of Your Blog Name – Day 2

When I first started writing this blog, we had just adopted our gorgeous little boy ‘Rupert’. A 5 week old cute as a button Boston Terrier, who crawled his way into our hearts the instant we met him. 

For anyone who has ever owned a Boston Terrier, you’ll be familiar with the side-of-the-head tilt that screams curiosity, disapproval and bewilderment all at once.

When I was naming the blog I thought about that tilt of the head and what it stood for, and reckoned if Rupert could talk it would be full of sarcasm, disapproval, a smidgen of humour and probably requests for more food. I decided there and then to name my blog ‘Rupert Approves’. Ironically, the older he’s got, the less he does. A bit like me I suppose.

Its all about the Boston

It’s not a secret that I am borderline obsessed with my 2 Bostons – Bella and Rupert. So much so, that this blog was named after one of them. Sorry second-child, the syndrome is true 🙂

Our dogs play a massive role in our lives and for anyone who follows me on Instagram (katenicolekearney) will know – thy dominate most of that as well!

I have found so many cool Boston merchandise items that I just had to share, as well as a few that I have made. That, and of course a few recent snaps of my dogs as well.
