IF YOUR DOGS ARE ANYTHING like mine, they are the most loyal companions, never judging or talking back, always at the ready with a happy wag of the tail, a cuddle, or a chin on the lap to comfort you just when you need it most. They offer us their unconditional love in good times and in bad, with eyes so compassionate that, if they could speak, would say, “I’m here for you.”
Throughout my life, I’ve had the privilege of owning a variety of dogs—purebreds, rescues and mutts, big and small.
In childhood, our family’s Schnoodle (Schnauzer-Poodle mix) was a deft soccer player, always stealing the ball before it made it into goal during our neighborhood scrimmages. Our Maltese entertained us with endless dancing on her hind quarters and slept on her designated pillow, pride of place on my mother’s bed. And in my teens, our Doberman, who was rescued by my brother from a shelter, was a true gentle giant.
While vastly different breeds, sizes and personalities, they all had one thing in common. We loved them dearly. An integral part of our family, they all lived well into their teens.
Fast forward more than 30 years and these days, as a parent with my own family, I’m inspired by my German Shorthaired Pointer puppy Piper and my Greyhound-Saluki mix Duke, an old dapper gent we rescued more than a decade ago while living in England when my children were just tots. We may have saved Duke but he most certainly saved us, with his affection and unwavering loyalty. Sprightly in his youth and an avid hunter who was fast as lightning, today, at 12, he is battling late stage heart disease and severe arthritis. Duke is now enjoying the retired life in the Florida sunshine, lounging his achy bones on his chaise longue by the pool or on the dock watching the boats go by.
Meanwhile, our GSP pup Piper is as energetic as they come and still full of the puppy crazies. Her spark has given Grandpa Duke a fresh pep in his step and a new lease on life, for which we are ever so thankful.
Honoring this companionship, and the immense joy our dogs bring us, I decided to start Posh Dog Life, an online boutique that spoils dogs rotten. They have brought so much delight to my family over the years that I wanted to share that happiness with other dog owners, who feel the same way about their fur babies.
Posh Dog Life features luxurious apparel, collars and accessories that are a sniff above the rest, offering fashion for breeds of all sizes (yes, big dogs can look cute too). Whether it’s for everyday wear or dressing your pooch up for a special occasion or formal affair, our styles will make your dog the envy of the neighborhood.
As well, stay apprised of the latest dog news and trends from around the globe in my new blog, Bark of the Park. It’s featured at the bottom of the home page. You can also follow us on social media @poshdoglife.
