Likes: Sitting regally and surveying her domain. It is the unbearable lightness of being Po. Grandpa "Trapper" and Kent - especially Kent!
Pet-Peeves: Sharing the house; though she has learned to graciously tolerate the "lesser dogs".
Favorite Toy: Needs no toys.
Favorite Food: Rosemary Crusted Rack of Lamb with a Cabernet demi-glace
Favorite Walk: None in particular.
Arrival Story: Po passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 21, 2014 at the age of 18 - that's 126 in dog years! She will be missed every day.
I knew the guardians of her mother, Blue, and assisted in the delivery. The moment Po was born and I saw her wonderful geisha hairdo and white eyelashes, she was mine.
Bio: The smartest dog I've ever had the privilege to know and I've known plenty - all good but not all of them bright. Po was born on Guam where mutts/mongrels are known as boonie dogs. The original dog stock for Guam is descended in part from the war dogs who remained behind after faithful service in the US Military during WWII. The Southern Marianas Sporting Hound (as we like to call them) is a hardy, resilient and intelligent dog. Po's mother was a pit bull/lab/boonie mix and her father an English Springer Spaniel. Po was also born without a tail which is not uncommon on Guam.
