From time to time you will find two sweet, hypoallergenic, non-shedding dogs at the studio, Albert and Panni. Dogs are a wonderful example of unconditional love, joy, happiness and equanimity. They can also teach you the best form for “Upward Dog” and “Downward Dog”.


Panni is a standard poodle and is only 4 months old as of this writing. He has a surprisingly mellow, gracious and wonderful soul. He likes to eat my houseplants, a habit we will break, but for now he looks around all innocent when I catch him. The evidence can be seen on this photo (yeah the plant is stuck on his mouth), but can you be mad? Look at that face!

Albert is a “maltipoo” a mix between a mini-poodle and a maltese. She is the best fetcher in the universe, full of energy, playfulness and fun! She was named after Albert Einstein since she insisted on sitting on the Einstein biography book as a puppy. She has the same hair as the physicist but not quite the same intelligence Even though she is a girl, the name stuck, she is Albert!

Panni is growing up… He is now 9 months old (today is October 19 2011) So I thought it is about time to post some new pictures! Here is Albert and Panni having fun in West Seattle. We usually go for a big-walkies in the middle of the day. Our  path is down to Alki beach and back. Then they get to roam the reception area of the studio till the students come back… and yes, they break the rules and get on the couch whenever Regan is not around… Just don’t tell Regan… 🙂
