Our Story Our Team
We are a team of three who wanted a creative outlet that would combine all our passions in life. So, we decided to start a website and blog, To Forgive Is Canine, dedicated to two fluffy dog models, to celebrate our lives, along with sharing dog raising tips and secret recipes. We want this to be a place where dog lovers can find the inspiration for living well with their pets. It has been the perfect blend of design, photography and animals, which makes us very happy.

Vice President - Food & Beverage
Mooshi, also known as Moosh, Mooshoo, Mousey, Mooshloo and Mooshlingy; is our resident reviewer of all things dog. She’s never met a human, dog, toy or treat she didn’t like.
No more a puppy, she still acts like one – we like to think of her as a baby who is never going to grow up! Her favourite pastimes include short walks, long naps, warm cuddles, and chewy toys – but not necessarily in that order.
INTERESTING FACT : She'll do anything for love…and Peanut butter.
Mooshi was the inspiration behind the launch of To Forgive Is Canine and she continues to inspire us daily.
Dr. Pompy Dube
Director - Fashion & Entertainment
Dr Pompy, lovingly nicknamed Pooms, Pommy, Poopy, and Pimpy; is quite the character. Picture a whole lot of energy, love and spunk packed into one tiny, light, fluffy ball.
She might be the queen of the house and afternoon siestas, but really Pompy’s all about play. Seriously, give her a balloon or an empty cardboard box and watch her in action – totally crazy.
Other than plastic bottles and soft treats, her daily favorites include belly rubs, sounding an alarm for visitors, following her humans, and snacking on carrots.
INTERESTING FACT : As much as we hate to admit, Dr.Pompy likes to sneakily eat poop.
Pompy’s silly, loyal to a fault personality has made her quite the muse for her mum’s photography. Her favorite part? She gets paid in belly rubs.
