My Favorite Family Pets

I know the 13th Edition of Smile for the Camera is weeks away, but I tend to get busy the first two weeks of the month at work, so I figured I might as well do it now. I was really excited when I found out that it was about family pets. My maternal aunt had the coolest dogs when I was a kid. Pierre was a black poodle and Peppi was a white poodle. There was also Gidget, a female white poodle, though I haven't been able to find any pics of her lately. I believe Peppi and Gidget were brother and sister, and Pierre may have been their father. I can't remember exactly what Pierre's relationship was to them. The funny thing was that the dogs always seemed to be passed around the family. I know Pierre stayed with my aunt and uncle in Louisiana for most of his life, but I think that Gidget once belonged to my uncle's mother, and Peppi possibly did too. Then Peppi and Gidget ended up going with my other maternal aunt and uncle to Michigan to live in the early 1990s.

Here is my profile picture of me and Pierre about 1983

My first cousin, Hope, and Peppi - Sep 1986

Hope and Pierre - abt 1987

Since my fiance doesn't have his own blog, I have to add this pic here. This is a pic of him and his beloved Dan, a wire-haired Vizsla that belongs to his mom. He loves Dan so much that I refer to Dan as his brother. Don't they look so cute? We will probably be getting our own Vizsla when we get married and buy a house so Dan can have a playmate.

Below is a pic of my future niece, Lindsay, and the beloved family min pin (miniature pinscher), Raven, who thinks she is a human. She has no clue she is a dog.
