Hugo Von Ulysses - The Blissful Dog of the Day December 28, 2018

Hugo Von Ulysses - The Blissful Dog of the Day December 28, 2018

HUGO VON ULYSSES - Great Dane of Fable & Lore

Today we are honored to chat with Hugo Von Ulysses, as our most esteemed Blissful Dog of the Day. His odyssey is a fascinating one and he truly lives up to his name.

The Blissful Dog: Tell us, how old is Hugo?

A: Hugo Von Ulysses  Born March 22 2018...….nine months old

TBD: Ah, the sign of Aries. Hugo is the embodiment of energetic confidence, wealth and empowerment. Lady Gaga and Leonardio are also Aries. Aries is always on the go, energetic and maybe a dash of turbulence. We'll see if Hugo fits the Aries mold.

TBD: How did Hugo come to be a part of your family?

A: We are a rescue only family, however when we decided to get a Great Dane, the Dane rescue wouldn't let us adopt as our yard isn't completely fenced.  So we found a great breeder and purchased Hugo

TBD: Hugo was obviously meant to be a part of your family. Destiny. Is he an only?

A: When we brought Hugo home we had an elderly Newfoundland who he tormented the bejesus out of.  She passed a month later. So currently he's an only dog.

TBD: We're a bit prejudiced, as we were lucky to have shared our lives with a very loving and dignified Newfie. We're sure she handled the young Hugo's torment with dignity and grace.

TBD: What was Hugo's latest adventure?

A: Hugo decided he didn't like our Christmas throw pillows and tore them to shreds while we were out.

TBD: Oh my, that is a serious lack of holiday cheer, Hugo, Hugo.

TBD: If you could tell Hugo one thing, and he would understand it completely, what would that be?

A: If Hugo could understand one thing we tell him, it would be that we'll love him forever, always and never abandon him for any reason. He's a member of our family.

The Blissful Dog: Thank you so much for taking time out of the holiday season, and picking up pillow stuffing, to answer a few questions. We're honored to have Hugo as our Blissful Dog of the Day.

Surviving Natural Disasters With Our Pets as Calmly As Possible

Every time we glance at the news it seems there is another weather-related emergency. From fires to droughts to recent hurricanes, it seems it never ends. As we watch people on video abandon their homes with their dogs clutched in their arms, most of us think, “What would I do?”

Philosophical Poo Ponderings | The Solipsistic Dog

Ah, the philosophy of the Solipsistic dog can be debated for hours, as Solipsistic followers are ever-so prone to do. It is one of those "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" type mindsets.
