It means a great deal to me.

It means a great deal to me.

For such a long time I was obsessing to create something that means something to someone and now I realised I should be chasing the idea to create something that means something to me.


If you search my blog and type in 'means something to someone' you will find that I was obsessing over this idea since 2013. That's more than 7 years. We go way back. I was chasing something that was not there and I tried so hard to create that perfect photo and write that perfect sentence and I cried while editing videos all night long. My way of creating was making me work hard, but mostly it made me miserable. And as soon as I showed someone what I did, it was never enough; I always had to top that. In some way it seems like an addiction. Whenever I felt something, I needed more and more and it never felt like I really felt something, but I couldn't stop.

When I needed a push in the right direction, I got a bulldozer, who ran me over and told me that I will never be enough and that I don't have what it takes to serve the people. I pushed it down, but I always knew it was there. It was always there, so I could doubt myself and work harder. When I went to college I never listened to lectures anymore, I had to edit for something I wasn't even proud of.

Then one day, after two hours of me editing a single photo, I asked someone what they think of it. Long story short I was really proud of my picture and they downgraded my work, which, for the first time, it felt fine to me. And I started creating things that meant something to me.


So, what am I doing right now? I am thriving. My work is thriving. Not always in everyone's eyes, but definitely I've grown in my eyes. That doesn't mean I am there yet, but I am somewhere I like being. I am definitely there with the dogs. I am the definition of a perfect dog servant. Goals, if you ask me.

It is happening

Many of you already know that my dogs became Red Dingo Ambassadors and at times I can't even comprehend that. Red Dingo is an amazing brand that creates dog gear and they do it with style. They are known by their recognisable Buckle Bone and I've been using their gear for years.

The fact that Thor and Orca are now officially a small part of that world is out of this world. We are currently working on a project and it is actually exciting. It means more road trips and adventures and just hanging out with friends more.

Since we have a very busy schedule and plans, I decided to share a few cute photos every day. It is like you are there with me then and get to enjoy some of my adventures.







If you want to follow our adventures, make sure you follow me @epremk and @dapper_pets on Instagram. ♥ And if you want to follow this Vizsla cuttie, you can follow her at @spiritofhuntingvizsla.

How do I say goodbye?!

How do I say goodbye?!


The sole fact that I've always been living feeling kinda guilty because I always though that I just wasn't doing enough and wasn't living by my full potential might not come as a surprise. As much as I appear to be the kind of person that doesn't care and stress about how others see me, I have spend hours and days and weeks doubting myself. I've been giving up on this blog slowly but surely for a whole year now. It is not what it has been and it makes me sad. The real reason is I kept this thought in my head that maybe my words aren't worth reading and I was debating if I should write at all or just give up. But how do I say goodbye to this?! I can't. Parting with this platform that has been there for me for so long and helped me to understand so much and gave me opportunity to do things I am doing right now; I just don't see myself doing that any time soon. But it is not fair to those, who have been there for this little world of mine and still are. You see, I am full of guilt.

But guilt aside, I've just been too busy. In the last couple of weeks I've been struggling to live. I guess in a good sense, but it is debatable. Being everywhere and doing everything, never saying no, is what I do all my life. Sometimes I think I am doing too much for my own good and then there are weeks, when I don't do anything remotely productive. There is nothing in between. From one extreme to another. I fill discs with photos so fast these days. My weeks are filled and my anxiety of meeting new people is almost not existent at this point, because I've been busy. I guess hard work pays off. I like to think I can make it in this world, if I only work hard, even if I don't currently have it all. And my photography has definitely skyrocketed.



But this is my comeback. I want to be active here, even if I only post like a bunch of photos with no real content. Just know that maybe my days are filled with me taking up to 2000 photos a day with Thor and Orca by my side, eating something I can grab really fast and sleeping for 4 hours and then drinking my 3 coffee cups in the morning and drive and repeat. My life changed drastically you could say, but my priorities changed and I love my life now and I love where this is going. I have so many plans it is hard for me to comprehend. But still if you want to hang out or collaborate, write me. I am always down. 😉

I'd like to officially welcome myself back, thanks for having me again.

We're right here

We're right here


Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path. – Shauna Niequist


Nothing in this life is half as important to me as them. Sometimes I get annoyed with myself because I say it so much, but it doesn't make it any less true. The funny thing is that people look at them and they see dogs and I see so much more. They gave me a purpose and they gave me opportunities to be happy, to do things, to live a better life, to travel, to love and to be loved. The first thing they teach you is how to tame them, but I am not their owner, we are roommates, we live in coexistence, we lead the same lives. It is the purest form of love and friendship. Others will say I overreact, that it is crazy, not normal, but I just found something inside them no one else sees and I would rather die than let that go. 


The most important thing they gave me is to show me that I am never lonely. Because there is a big difference between being alone and being lonely. And I never had a problem with being alone, because I am very surrounded and my life is a constant motion filled with people. But I struggled with being lonely, even when I wasn't alone, and with them I never have to feel lonely. Their touch is home. You'd have to be a fool not to see that.

Chasing Orca

Chasing Orca


The idea behind Chasing Orca was born a year ago, when I created a profile on Instagram called @chasing_orca. It was a simple idea to have a profile specifically made to show you life of my puppy Orca. Soon after I realised I like taking the same style of pictures in different places and I actually saw that my blog was full of similar photos. I was thinking a lot about this. Is it a good idea? How do I make it work? And then I just said "fuck it" and did it.



The support I received was absolutely amazing. Just in two days I gained almost 200 new followers on Instagram and went from 120 to more than 300! I've never experienced anything quite like that. I got my photos shared all over WEheartIT and met a few lovely people.


All.in.the.matter.of.two.days.




To be honest I am so pumped and so excited to work on this. I don't think I've ever been so driven to do something like this in my life. In the end it is all for my dogs. Everything I do it is for them.

The whole concept was born from the idea to show my dogs the world. And they have already seen so much of it. I dare to say almost as much as I did. I live by these wise words:

IF MY DOGS CAN'T COME, I AM NOT GOING.

Take one box a day.

Take one box a day.


One of my dear passions is bullet journaling. Over the years I've had countless notebooks, journals, to do notebooks, little notepads and similar kind of papery devices. It helps me stay organised, but above all else, I write down my everyday adventures in it that I want to remember, it makes me happy. This one has a lot of pictures in it and plans and notes. And it is not really a secret that lately I've not been the best. Mentally. Physically I've actually been thriving.

I don't feel the best when I am in Mengeš. Deep down I don't like accepting it as my home. I don't have a daily routine or goals here. I just come here to let the three months pass and I can't wait to go back to Koper. It sounds sad, but I like my life by the sea more than anything else. One more good month to go and then I am going back.

But it has been hard. I work hard to stay happy every day and not to be a downer for everyone else around me. Because I know I can be a pain in the ass. Nevertheless, I created this idea that I called 'take one box a day'.

It is basically me planning every day in my bullet journal and then taking one box of problems a day. Today I am actually taking two, because I am brave and dramatic. But I think it is so important for my state of mind that I don't take too much upon myself, when I am feeling this low. So, every problem I solve gives me a weird satisfaction to know I am actually okay and that life is not really that hard. Because life really isn't that hard for me and I acknowledge that. Sometimes I get lost because location is a huge factor for me. It has always been a huge factor, since I moved like 13 times already in 23 years of my life.

So, like I strongly suggest that if you are waging war in your head sometimes, like I do, that you don't  wage it yourself. Talk and write. Writing for me, makes all the difference in the world. And maybe try the 'take one box a day' challenge if you think it might help. I think the hardest part in life is to rebuild yourself, it takes a strong person.
