power (n.) c.1300: the ability to act or do. Strength, vigor, might. From Anglo-French pouair, Old French povoir, to be able.
This makes power the essence of life. And you know what fuels it? Integrity! Well that is what I think. And you know what shines the crest of your integrity? The problems of life. These become tests, opportunities to do the right thing and feel the surge of energy, the confidence and certainty, that comes from that. Or do the wrong thing and learn what a choice for the greater good might have been. It allows you to grow, to become bigger, to become wiser.
Do you know what other word has the derivation, “to be able”? MAGIC! Pupscouts Hollywood Troop #12 will be bringing a little bit of both to you this February when they host their Furbulous Fantastical Oscar Viewing Party Red Carpet Event!
February 22, 2015
We needed a bigger venue with a bigger TV! We have a tentative place, an amazing wonderful place,but I don’t want to announce it until it is finalized.
To Benefit the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation
Pupscouts Hollywood Troop #12 will be hosting the event. The Pupscouts.org are a national organization of fashionesta dogs who like to earn badges and help their community. This will be an Oscar viewing party and red carpet event, with a 1920’s restaurant style fashion show that all attendees can participate in.
The fashion show part of the evening will preview a small grouping of items that I have created for a show that I will be doing March 22 in Palm Springs: Le Chien: Fashion Week El Paseo 2015 to benefit the Desert Humane Society. But any dog who comes dressed can be a part of the moment.
I am an artist. I used to design human clothes for Albert Nipon and Christian Dior. I left that world for adventures in Hollywood, where I eventually became a writer. I first returned to my fashion roots to help save rescue dogs. That has expanded into helping a variety of both dog and human causes. Dogs offer society the loyalty, love, and compassion that our internet-driven world is slowly draining from us. What better vehicle to help get some of that back than adorable dogs in dresses promoting causes? That is my mission, and my Pupscout troop is helping me to accomplish it.
The Pupscouts will also be posting their very own Kickstarter page in conjunction with the event to raise money for AHVMF, so stay tuned for that! Woofie and Bear, with the help of the Darling Miss Coco Puffz, stole my computer! They then rallied the troop, and they are making something quite fabulous! Or should I say furbulous? Look out, world, these dogs are getting it done!
