Alright Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my closeup

We recently were invited to participate in a photo shoot for the hospital’s ongoing efforts touting our group on the website. Hi there, Sam here. Because I’m one dashing looking dude, I volunteered immediately. Here’s a collage of some of the many pics the photographer took of our group. Some of us were so excited (Fergie, the American Bull Dog never stopped wagging her tail while she was visiting with the “Dogtor.”) and others were so happy to get to lay on top of with patients. Even Pepe, the party colored Standard got to met with a cute little girl in the lobby. You should be able to click on each pic for a bigger view. So, who do you reckon is the fairest one of all? Think I’ll get the call from general casting for more closeups?


All of us enjoyed showing off ourselves, and visiting with the people and staff who helped complete our stagings. A big thank you to each and every one of the dogs and their uprights who take the time to visit patients, staff and visitors at the hospital throughout the year. You guys are the best!

Have you ever seen pet therapy at work in a hospital or at a nursing home?


P.S. Sam’s mom here. Many thanks to everyone who left such sweet comments about “Elsa’s coming out” post. One week with us and she’s doing great, has gained some weight to go with her improved confidence and has taken to liking furniture.


Live, love, bark! <3


iMovies and minions

imagesSam here. So yesterday we spent 87 hours trying to upload a video to WP that we made with iMovie only to miserably fail. Technology isn’t mom’s fur-iend on a good day, but on a snowy day…let’s just say it didn’t get better.  Can anyone explain why this kind of stuff has to be such a cluster? Oh well, at least she took me on two super long walks when she couldn’t deal with any more technology. Can you imagine how happy I was to be able to read pee-mail to my heart’s content even though she shivered in the latest spring snow storm waiting for me to reply to everyone’s messages?

For the record, us poodles don’t have owners, we have minions. Now if only mine could produce a cotton-pickin’ video! Sheez. Cecil B. DeMille she ain’t! Here’s hoping your ‘minions’ have a terrific weekend.

Live, love, bark! <3
