Fluffy Puppies Adore the Snow

The Fluffy Puppies, Bianca & Sorcha, love winter in Tahoe, particularly because they adore the snow. Even in their senior citizen years, they act like puppies as soon as their paws touch the white powder, playing and roughhousing, barking and digging. And although it’s a treat for them to jump around our balcony, they have …

Dog Days at Fort Funston

The Fluffy Puppies have always loved going to Fort Funston. Over the years, they’ve gotten less scared of the water, and hence have gotten more dirty on these weekend trips. I’m just grateful that neither of them are into rolling in the sand on their backs like this pup: Fort Funston is always a great …


It’s been a while since I posted a photo of the Fluffy Puppies. Here’s Bianca at her favorite place, Fort Funston. Ever since a dog was stabbed by the owner of a pitbull at Fort Funston, I don’t really want to take the dogs back there until justice has been served. I think the courts …

Happy Holidays from the Fluffy Puppies

Bianca & Sorcha enjoyed the holidays. They got rawhide candy canes and lots of attention from everyone. They don’t enjoy doing their holiday photos, though. They have very little interest in the Christmas tree, so we could only get them to pose by the tree for their holiday photos if we hid a freeze-dried chicken …

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from the Fluffy Puppies – Angelic Sorcha and Devilish Bianca. These aren’t actually costumes, just a representation of their true personalities.

My Best Models

The Fluffy Puppies, Bianca and Sorcha, are my best models. At 5 years old and 75 pounds each, they’re not puppies anymore. But everyone called them Fluffy Puppies when they were young and the name stuck. Now we’ll just consider it their stage name.
