On November 4, 2008 we as American people came together and overwhelmingly elected Barack Obama as our 44th President of the US.  This was an amazing day in history for all of us and as you can see the pUPs of the world were pretty excited as well.  The long awaited change that we needed for this country has arrived.  And for those of you who’s support Barack has yet to win, he hears your voices, he needs your help, and he will be YOUR President too!

Sometimes I wonder if I’m dreaming…

I open my eyes and find myself in a soft, comfy bed, not a wire cage. The house is filled with sweet, peaceful silence, not the desperate cries of dogs. And then there’s her. She calls herself “Ma.” After she adopted me I didn’t know what to expect. After years of being locked in a cage, I had lost all hope of ever being treated with kindness, but from the moment she touched me, I was smitten. Whenever she picks me up or strokes my head, she is careful, soft, gentle. She doesn’t grab me. She never hurts me. She feeds me delicious food, as much as I need to feel satisfied. There is always fresh, cool water in my bowl. She actually kisses me. A lot. And sings to me. And lets me sleep pressed against her. I’m not afraid anymore. I have a name, not a number. I am loved now.

– Excerpt from A Rare Breed of Love


I happened to came across this book in the current issue of Modern Dog Magazine and right away I added it to my list of books I NEED!  A heart wrenching true story of Baby, a puppy mill survivor and the mission that she has inspired to help pUPs everywhere.  Baby travels the world as a “spokesdog” and animal advocate to make people aware of puppy mills and hopefully in the process change the laws that help to protect these animals so that more can expericne the happy ending that she was able to have.

Check out the pic below of Baby with one of my inspirations Senator (and future President of the United States) Barack Obama. Baby, like Obama, brings hope to those who may have no reason to hope at all. Lets all do our part to help stop puppy mills.

Visit:  http://www.puppymillrescue.com to see how you can help.  Oh, and don’t forget to check out Baby’s book….. “A Rare Breed of Love” By Jana Kohl


Baby "spokesdog" for puppymill surviovors and Barack Obama

Nature's Best Dog Food

Nature's Best Dog Food

This past Tuesday while walking to work across the street from Bryant Park,  I received a free gift on the corner of 42nd and 6th ave… and no it wasn’t a cab driver yelling at me to “get outa the way”  it was actually something nice.  I was asked dog or cat and when I replied dog I was given a free sample of Nature’s Best dog food along with a $3.00 coupon off of a future purchase.

Now if that doesn’t make you want to pack up your things and move to NYC then the ending to my story just might.  As I was standing on the corner there waiting for my friend, the fashion editor for GLAMOUR Mag was walking straight towards me… and as I am sure she does to many passersby while walking across from Bryant Park, she looked me UP AND DOWN.  Then as she got close, without even missing a step she blurted out cute outfit!  Wow!!!! I got “the look” and approval from the fashion editor of GLAMOUR.  Now I know its not VOGUE or anything, but still I was pretty excited 🙂

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

Gabrielle Coco Chanel

Here at pUPscale we couldn’t agree more with Miss Chanel and with a vintage collar your pUP is sure to be the talk of the dog park for weeks to come.  I came across this absolutely beautiful sea foam green, rhinestone encrusted vintage dog collar over at etsy.com and thought I would share it with you. You check out the listing, click on the picture above.

Vintage has become very popular in the recent years, and why should the pUPs not join in on the fun.  Treat your pUP to something unique, something that no other pUP will have.  Go ahead, show your pUP just how special they are.

*Random Bit of Information: CoCo was a nickname given to Gabrielle Chanel during a Cabaret performance, meaning “little pet”…how appropriate for a pUPscale blog 🙂
