Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month… and since spoiling your pUP is part of livin’ the pUPscale life, why not do a little a little good in the process.

All of the above items are available at The Breast Cancer Site where every purchase made will help fund mammograms for women in need.  Early detection is the only way to save your life.

I think I’m going to get the loofa toy for Frankie and the note cards for me 🙂

Lots of Kisses,



If like myself, you love both fashion and pUPs and you will be just as excited for this documentary as I am. Valentino The Last Emperor premiering at the Venice Film Festival and International Film Festival, is much more than just another fashion movie, its the story of one of the most celebrated designers of our time.  Check out the clip below featuring his beautiful pUGs.

From one pUPpy loving designer to another…. Bravo Valention, Bravo!!!

Lots of Kisses,

A Rare Breed of Love

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

Featured pUP: Pebbles LaRue

Hometown: Natomas (Sacramento, Ca)… and please don’t ask, Pebbles does not personal know the Governator 😉

Lifestyle: A true California girl at heart, Miss LaRue spends her days loungin’ in the sun whenever she can.  Once in the morning and once at night she struts
her stuff through the neighborhood as only a diva could.

pUPscoop: Pebb’s is a rescue puppy and thanks her mommy everyday for introducing her to the pUPscale life! She LOVES french fries…and bacon treats.

Not only is she the apple of her moms eye but shes also a very well taken care of  “grandpuppy”.

Oh and roadtrips are her fave, but she ALWAYS rides in the drivers seat and would probably take the wheel if she could! 🙂

Pebbles and her Cousin Penny

If you think your pup should be featured in “Lifestyles of the pUPscale and famous” email me a pic along with a short story including your pUP’s name, hometown and the pUPscoop on how they are livin’ the pUPscale life.  We might just feature you! Email all info to pupscale@gmail.com

Until next time…

Lots of Kisses,


pUPs for 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 🙂

Lots of Kisses,
