It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Happy Birthday Pup !

11 years ago, a nice couple of Standard Poodles had a baby, well, some babies. And one of them was this bundle of brown curly sweetness that we brought home with us when he was only 3 months old.
He has been the best companion, best friend, best protector and biggest sweetheart we could have ever hoped for.

He is one of the most well-traveled pups that I know of , having been born in NJ, lived in New York, Florida, Oregon and now Argentina.
He has been to the Hamptons on a regular basis, he is an Eastside Pup who liked Sundays in Soho and holidays in Central Park. 

He enjoyed the summer he spent in the Berkshires and was not averse to moving there and being a Country Pup. But then as fate would have it, he became a Hot Florida Pup for a year, before being a Portlander for a year before becoming a PorteƱo Pup.. He really likes it here. He has made many friends and enjoys the attention and kindness of the Pup loving people here.

He makes me laugh, he comforts me, he "guards" me and he is a great Goodwill Ambassador .. 

Happy Birthday to our Pup .. May he live 11 more years or more ... 


  1. Buon compleanno, Cane di Internationale!

  2. Oh happy birthday, isn't it just fitting it is the first day of the new season? You are a beautiful boy and don't look a day over three.

  3. Hugs and Kisses and ear scratches and belly rubs Pup!

  4. Happy Birthday, dear Pup, happy birthday to you!! (And many more!)

    One of my favorite photos of pup was e-mailed to me when I was feeling "down" during my mother's hospitalization. It was a smart photo of pup in a blue flannel plaid shirt. That pup is one stylish guy!!

  5. Ha ! I have it still... I almost posted it ... my Grunge Pup.

  6. I read these to Pup .. he really liked that he doesn't look a day over 3 ..
    We just came in from the park.. where he got to play catch me and sniff this and run away !!
    It was all great fun and now we are snug in our warm ( it is so cold out !!) home and continuing the party.

  7. I just may have to pump up the AC, start a fire in the old fieldstone fireplace and eat cake to celebrate!!!

  8. Happy birthday Pup! What a coincidence, my dog's birthday was on the 20th. He received lots of congratulations on his Facebook page (and most surprisingly he responded to all of them!).

  9. Sandra, your dog is just brilliant !
    Pup wags his tail when I read things to him but he rarely wants to reply.
    Feliz cumpleanos a su Perro !

  10. What a sweetheart! Happy Birthday Pup!!! These precious creatures bless us so's to another 11!!!
