Monsieur Auguste Rodin

ere, Gentlemen, a Dog teaches us a lesson in humanity.

There were certainly signs, a familiarity, a calling.
Something drew me to Sculpture.

First Prize in Sculpture

In Architecture class I designed new columns for our apartment building at 15 East 10th Street in NYC, something more in keeping with the character of the place. I titled it

after Maitre Rodin's masterpiece.


Painting was ... messy....

Getting a well-rounded Arts and Humanities
Education, I read about Felix Mendelsohn, a composer.

It's not all Theory and History. Baby Frida and I
practice singing "a capella" at The DOGHOUSE during Spring brake.

I also studied Drama:
"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!"
That's Mister Shakespeare, from England.

"Cleanliness is next to godliness" means you must be well disciplined in all you do,
including in your appearance, so I have my special groomer Melissa to "dude" me up.
She takes care of Baby Frida too, as well as Sophie's mainicure/pedicures.

"No pain, no gain!" Yeah, sure! Hate Phys Ed but, if you wanna be TOP DOG like moi, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Gave football a shot but, violent game. Non pour moi, merci! And I can't say I like all those sick VICK and PIERCE goon type. I'll get my execise otherwise....

Tried basketball but I'm too small. I'm a "mini" Schnauzer, you know....
Jumping after all the BIG guys leaves me 'xhausted.

I like climbing in the snow.

Bird Dogging is great in winter too. I'm learning to Bird Dog.

I prefer summer, though. Swimming is SO-O-O-O-O much more my bag!
SO-O-O-O-O much more relassssssssssssss....

Come, Sophie, you'll love it!
