So the original second half of this dynamic duo is my little pug – Abner.
I bought Abner in 2009, a few months after I graduated from Indiana University.
When I decided to move to Germany, I knew Abner would also come with me. There was no question in my mind. Actually the process of bringing him to Germany was very easy (Thank God!).
Over the last year he has become quite the little model. So you can also follow his adventures during my first few years in this new land!
Abner sadly passed away in April 2019, but he still lives on through our adventures!
Bringing Your Dog to Germany
Moving your Dog to Germany is doable, but requires some organization. I have written tons of posts about the subject, so I thought I would post them here.
Adventures of Abner
Abner had a ton of adventures in his little life, check out all of these blog posts celebrating this gremlin’s life!
Ever since Abner passed away, I decided to create the hashtag #100DaysofAbner for Instagram to take a trip down memory lane. It’s been a great way to look back on Abner’s life.
Guys, meet Roxy. After losing Abner, we knew we couldn’t stay pugless for long! Come check out my YouTube Channel for more Roxylicious Adventures!

How I Designed The God Queen’s Cover
Today’s the day, folks! Today I get to finally reveal the cover to The God Queen. You excited? Cause I as sure as hell am. But instead of just doing just a cover reveal, I am also going to give you some step by step tips you need if you also want to work on your own cover.
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. – J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit (1937).
I guess you are wondering where all have I travelled. I decided to come up with a relatively interactive map. Hopefully it will keep growing!
