Throw Back Thursday….Way Way Back

Here’s a look at our very first post….way way back….

My View From Twelve…that’s inches!

I am Dante Alighieri.  I am three years old and I am a Malti-Poo.  I weigh in at just a smidge over five pounds.  And from the tip of my paws to the top of the fluffy white fur on my head, I am twelve inches tall.

I live with my human Doggie-Momma, in fabulous & warm Coral Gables, Florida. This blog will be typed by her but it will be my observations and opinions on our life (mostly hers)…the good, the bad, the ugly….the happy, the sad…the highs and the lows.  I am her constant companion and no one, I mean no one, two-legged or four-legged, knows her better than me.  No one has heard her laugh so much or cry so hard…no one but me listens to her prayers at night or her affirmations in the morning.

This is our life…from my point of view…from twelve inches.  She may only be five foot five, but she’s a giant to me!  I may only be a dog…but I am her best friend and confidante.  Welcome to our life!  I am Dante Alighieri…The Travelin’ Boy.  Later!

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit

“Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit” is a common British superstition which states that a person should say or repeat the word “rabbit” out loud upon waking on the first day of the month, because doing so will ensure good luck for the duration of that month.  So to help all you two-leggeds out there to have a SEPTEMBER filled with good luck…just look at these pictures of you know who and my friends repeat after us:RABBIT RABBIT RABBIT







Now go out there and have a very lucky, lucky, lucky SEPTEMBER!

Thank goodness for nap time!

Sometimes SHE has to go into the office on the weekends to get caught up on work…and when SHE does, SHE always likes for me to keep HER company. SHE always gives me an assignment…yesterday my assignment was to guard HER iced coffee cup…that was a big assignment ’cause that’s a BIG cup!

Guarding that great BIG cup of HERS is exhausting…thank goodness I get nap time!

Big Boys are brave and don’t get scared…

cats and dogsIf I described the weather last night and said it was raining cats and 
dogs…that would be an understatement.  I don’t think I have ever seen or heard so much rain…no walking or struttin’ last night for sure.   I could tell that all that rain and noise was making HER scared so I decided to climb up on HER shoulder and help make HER feel safe.  I have to admit that after I got up there and snuggled in…I felt pretty safe too…not that I was scared or anything like that.  Remember, I’m a Big Boy now and Big Boys are brave and don’t get scared…but it sure did feel good!  BAYL…
