When it comes to dog blogs, none quite do it as beautifully as Serena Faber Nelson’s Pretty Fluffy. From the gorgeous photography (a lot of which is contributed by the talented Sarah Dickerson of Chic Sprinkles) to the inspirational messaging (my favorite being The 13 Project), Serena has captured the dog world in such a stunning and positive way. But she can’t do it alone. Her trusty sidekick Soda is there every step of the way, and today, we get to know her a little better. Thanks for sharing Soda’s story Serena! (And thanks for having me and Mr. Harvey on your blog last month!)
What breed is your dog?
How old is he/she?
How did you and your dog come to be together?
I got Soda when I was just 21. As someone unhealthily obsessed with sitcoms, Soda got her name from Seinfeld, where George has his future firstborn’s name stolen and he tries to get the couple to switch to the name ‘Soda’ in the delivery room. She’s been by my side as I’ve started by career, met the love of my life, moved houses, and everything in between. She really is my best friend. My husband always jokes that once he had Soda’s approval he knew he had a chance with me! I love that now that she’s older, I get to be there for her and the bond we have these days runs very deep.
In one word, how would you define your dog’s personality?
Intuitive – she always know whether it’s time for a cuddle or time to whack you in the face with a paw to get you out of bed!
What is your dog’s favorite toy/treat/plaything?
Soda is a toy-aholic! She loves anything squeaky, and has destroyed many soft toys in her lifetime. However her favourite would have to be the Kong – whether she’s gobbling up the treats stuffed inside or playing fetch she adores her Kong. Now that she’s older she has the purple senior Kong which is much better for her teeth and gums.
If your dog were human, what career do you think they would have?
Bar tender. She’d listen to your problems for days on end, likes to get rowdy, and frankly, with her name, would fit right in. Scotch and Soda anyone?
What celebrity does your dog most resemble?
Amy Poehler. Hilarious, whip smart and gorgeous – but not afraid to be silly.
Where is your dog’s favorite place in the house?
I know this is a no-no but she loves sitting on our bed looking out the window watching the world go by!
What do you love most about your dog?
Every. Single. Thing. It really is amazing that the longer you have a dog, the bigger your heart grows.
Finish this sentence: The love of a dog is_______________.
…a life well lived.
