Pup Clever was born and raised in small town Alberta where he worked as a paramedic and emergency dispatcher before moving to Vancouver to pursue his education as a chemist. As a member of the PAH community, he identifies as a service pup with a strong desire to spread the message of puppy far and wide.
Clever enjoys walkies in the scenic BC forests, spending time with his family, cooking food for friends and family, and live music. He is especially fond of rock and heavy metal, and loves to mosh in more ways than one. An avid reader, his interests include chemistry, physics, astronomy, and food.
Currently, Clever serves the community as President of VAN-PAH, and is involved in the Northwest Puppy and Handler competition. He is Alpha of the OAK Pack, and his two amazing dogs. Previously, he held the title of Northwest Puppy 2018 and ran for IPTC Puppy 2018. He lives in Vancouver with his husband, Pixel.
boypup Yomi is a black shiba inu who loves good food, good company, and a good time. His journey started at the Dallas Eagle in 2015 and since then, he chose to spread the puppy love through education, volunteering, and support.
As a board member of the Lone Star boys of Leather and the Texas Puppy Club, he continues his journey of service and fun in and out of Leather. When he’s not being tied up, beaten, or getting a bone buried, he enjoys anime like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, RPGs (especially Pugmire), and sharpening his Japanese language skills.
Ryan Baehr is the president of PDX PAH, a leatherman, and a community handler. He loves spending time educating and taking care of pups, kitties, and critters no matter how they identify. The only things he loves more than the pet play community is his awesome husband Sir Pounder, his wolf Jarrad, and his leather boy Chris.
As an incorrigible wuzzie, Daddy Mark, held the title of NW Handler 2018. He is a daddy who loves all of the pups and those alike. Currently a groomer of many in the PAH world, Daddy tends to lend his ear and support to those who sit in his chair.
Daddy Mark moved to the lower mainland for school but grew up farm boy in central BC where he honed his handling skills on a cattle farm. Who knew running cattle would lend itself so well to his fetish! Daddy also learned the importance of working as a team with his family, building homes and metal buildings until heading off to College. Daddy still loves promoting education and supporting new and current pups or handlers as they grow into themselves.
Daddy’s spare time usually includes running along the seawall or sweating it out in the gym. As many in the NW Region know, he can be found in the kitchen cooking a meal to entertain guests at his home in Vancouver. Daddy Mark loves to travel and share his experiences with others in different countries and here on his home turf.
