I've dreaded the day I would have to make this post...  Late last week Stella passed away overnight.  She recently celebrated her 13th birthday, and in English Bulldog years, that's a long, full life.  Normally, I'd tuck this wayyyy down, withdraw, and hide my sadness the best I could (aka using humor as my coping mechanism :)).  However, when you make your beloved pet a part of your brand identity, other people besides yourself are going to feel connected, and she was loved so much by many of you as well :)

I first got Stella at 6 weeks old, and she passed just a couple weeks after her 13th birthday.  The photos above are from the first time I met her and the last day she was with us.  As hard as it has been since she passed, I wouldn't give up a single second of the time I had with her and the memories created.  We were best buds for 13 years, and that's like half my life (like I said, let me have my humor :))  It doesn't matter how much you try to prepare yourself for the loss of a loved one, it's never easy.  I'm sorry I didn't say anything sooner, but I needed some time to process it myself.

This past year, she really started to show her age, and I tried to start preparing myself the best I could.  Part of that was knowing I wanted to do something to honor her and do something good in her name.  The shirt you see on the third slide is a design we were going to put out for our anniversary in July/August, but it seems fitting to put it out now and pay tribute to her.  With sales of the shirt, we're going to donate a portion of the profits to a local rescue organization, Bullies 2 The Rescue, in her name.  

If the shirt isn't your style but would still like to do something, there are a lot of rescues that are in need right now, and any of them would appreciate your support.  Stella may be gone, but she will always be a part of Glory Days. We will continue to use her likeness from time to time in our designs - we already had some designs in the chamber that will be coming out over the spring/summer, so you'll still get to see her Again, it's been an extremely difficult week, but thank you to everyone who loved her :)

Our unisex Comfort Colors t-shirt features a looser and more traditional fit.  True to size fit.  Made of a heavyweight pre-shrunk 100% cotton.
