Precious Pup of the Day for May 1

Name: Kahlua
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female Breed: Bichon Frisé, Poodle mix
Home: San Jose, California, USA
This is Kahlua, our loving family member! She is a five-year-old Bichon Poo. Kahlua loves to go on walks in the park, shopping trips, and visits to her Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Kahlua’s Grandma loves to hide in the house just to hear Kahlua’s little feet run through the entire house to find her, and when she finds her, Kahula will take her to where her treats are located and jump high for a treat! Watching this is a fun treat for all of us!Kahlua also enjoys playing with her toys, but her timing is way off! When you’re getting ready for bed – this is her play time! Kahlua will hop into the bed with one toy, then get another one, and then another one, and wants you to play with her! When you wake up in the morning, the bed is filled with all her toys!!

Kahlua also loves to visit her Great Grandma and her cousins Bailey and Harley in Monterey, California. This photo was taken at Monterey where she enjoys walking on the beach with her cousins. Kahlua is a bundle of joy that makes us not sweat the small stuff in life!

Kahlua, the Dog of the Day

Dog-gone Doggie of the Day for Feb. 14th

Wilson, the Dog of the Day
Name: Wilson
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male Breed: Miniature Poodle
Home: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Wilson is my adopted shelter dog who is the subject of my children’s books, “Wilson Gets Adopted” and “Wilson Learns Manners” – which helps children learn manners, too – and the spring release will be “Wilson and the White House Pups.” I post Wilson in costumes on his website, Wilson Gets Adopted.com.

I found Wilson on Petfinder, I was looking for a small non allergenic dog to be compatible with my two Havanese. He was four years old then, and he is six now. His first book tells, of course, of his adoption, but it starts with his early life – he ended up in rescue because his former owner was an elderly man who got sick, and couldn’t keep him anymore.

Wilson is friendly, loves to be in front of the camera and be on TV shows. As he was a rescue, I thought he might be mixed with Bichon or some other breed, but we had DNA testing done, and he’s purebred poodle! So that proves you can find purebred dogs in rescue!

He learned tricks when he came to live with us, SIT, FETCH, PAW, DOWN, STAY, and he was an apartment dog with his first owner, so my two dogs taught him to go outside. He loves being dressed up – the attention and the treats are part of the deal!

Wilson is a true “lap dog“, if I let him, he would stay on my lap all day! He gives kisses and snuggles. He’s the best.
