Oberon, an Alaskan Klee Kai pup

The samoyeds have their spitzes, the akitas have their shiba inus, the collies have their shelties, and now huskies have their Alaskan klee kais. No matter what look you like in your doggy companion, there is a size out there that fits your need. For me, I like the larger dog breeds, as evidenced by …

Happy 10th Birthday, Fluffy Puppies!

Bianca & Sorcha turned 10! I can’t believe it was 10 years ago that we brought them home, two cottonballs that looked like polar bears and grew into enormous, well, polar bears. They spent their 10th birthday at our new home, and Teresa & Doug came up from Los Angeles to celebrate and keep them …

Merry Christmas!

From all of us to all of you, have a Merry Christmas! -Sabrina & Andrew -Bianca & Sorcha Ko-Yeung-Bowers (The Fluffy Puppies)

San Francisco: The cool, grey city of love

When people ask me, “where are you from?” and I answer “I was born and raised in the Bay Area.”, they’re usually surprised that they’ve encountered a native. But if you were born here, why would you ever leave? I’ve been spoiled by the beautiful buildings and architecture, the eclectic cultural activity, the liberalness and …

Happy 9th Birthday, Fluffy Puppies!

Today, the Fluffy Puppies turned nine. Every time I think about how old they’re getting, it makes me a little sad and I wonder why people learn to love things that will inevitably die before them. It doesn’t seem very rational but I guess these things aren’t meant to be rational. There’s a line from …

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 …

Best of 2010

#10. Being the assistant photographer to Denise Collier at Lech & Drea’s Wedding #9. Roping in same Denise Collier to go macro shooting in SF’s Golden Gate Park #8. Front row seats to the fireworks above Lake Tahoe #7. Waiting 6 hours for Andrew to finish his half-Ironman to take this shot at the Big …

Bianca

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 …

Just Playin’…

Sorcha says, “I’m just playin’, so don’t take the biting and barking as aggression because if we get in a fight, well, I don’t know how to fight, so you’re going to kick my butt and it’s going to hurt and I don’t want to hurt, so I’d rather you just realize now that I’m …
