SPEECHLESS SUNDAY: Shameless use of a cute puppy!

Industry Observer

Winston the PBGV

I recently visited my dad in Florida and got to meet the latest addition to our family... a cute PBGV pup named Winston.  I had never heard of the PBGV breed before.  Officially it stands for Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, but for me it just stands for adorable!  I noticed how much attention he got from everyone who saw him, so I figured I'd let him work the magic on my blog!  Happy Sunday!

Love! the puppy! I miss my dog. My chickens, however, would not be amused if I got another one and the chicken are easier to care for except for getting a chickensitter when you want to vacation. :-)

Steve, It worked! What a sweet little one he is. I am not aquainted with this breed as yet but he sure is a cutie. " Does my hair look OK? "

Hi Steve, So shameless and sweet. I am not sure I have heard of this breed? He looks so happy and relaxed and a true poser for the camera that is. Thanks for sharing.

Steve, this little one is almost cuter than a Labradoodle puppy!  OK.  Maybe as cute as.

Hi, Steve -

Just cruised through here and saw your dad's really cute dog -- your new brother! 

Is your dad still doing some real estate?  I remember you telling me what an icon he was throughout his years in the business.

He is cute! I want a dog; but I want a great big dog.  Maybe a Lab or German Shepard or  just a big mutt.
