Sir Edward joined the Chicago puppy community in Summer 2016. At that point, though very inexperienced in kink, he quickly found his home and happiness as a Dom in the kink and pup community. Pup play as well as the puppies in Chicago have led him to experience many different kinds of kinks. He enjoys the happiness and healing he can bring to others by introducing them to and training them in pup play.
"The kink community and lifestyle has transformed who I am. As leader of my pack, the strength, peace, and mentoring I bring to those who look up, who choose to give that power to me and submit to me, gives me fulfillment in my life that I have never had. Likewise this community gives me joy l had never imagined."
Outside of the community Sir Edward is currently working as a QA Python Automotion Engineer for a large financial tech company in the loop. This being his first post graudate job after obtaining his bachelors degree from Roosevelt University.
Sir Edward's mission is to introduce anyone who is currious and willing to the lifestyle of Pup Play, to the community, and to CPP. This desire comes from having personally experienced the healing and peace that pup play can bring to those lacking fullfillemnt, purpose, and happiness in their life.
Sir Shadi has held an interest in leather for the bulk of his adult life. He entered the formal scene in 2015 with a run for Mr. Chicago Leather in an attempt to face his fear of public speaking. He is the former 2016 Illinois Leather Sir, and was the first runner-up in the 2016 GLLA Leather Sir contest.
As a goofball of sorts, full-time IT professional, and a major Trekkie, he flexes his virtual intellectual muscles far more often than his actual biceps (unless his arm is turning you into a Muppet). He enjoys challenging the conventional, believing that there is no such demarcation as a final frontier.
Volunteering in establishing OUT! Bowling, a gay social league in the western suburbs of Chicago, has been one of his proudest achievements. You can also find him kicking his heels up with the ChiTown Squares, a long-standing GLBTQIA Chicago square dancing organization. He has also taught several kink classes on fisting, impact play, and consent.
He's an avid giver of scritches, identifying as a pup handler. He hopes to help the pups of Chicago enjoy themselves in a safe space in his new role as Secretary of the Chicago Puppy Patrol
Snuggles has been part of the leather community since IML 2006 and has avidly researched the leather lifestyle ever since. He has been with his Sir, Victor, since before learning about the leather community, but can definitely say that it has strengthened their relationship and also made him a stronger person and pup. In addition to being with him, they have two other wonderful, loving members of their poly family, Solomon and Natali. Snuggles is also co-founder of Chicago Puppy Patrol, Mama's Pup Snuggles, a previous President for Bloomington Kink, a massage therapist, yoga instructor, photographer, website designer, and renaissance reenactor.
A member of the Leather Community since January of 2010, Luph Simien has been exploring and finding his place. Shortly after being exposed to pups, he discovered the Handler aspect of his personality. Through his experiences and with the help of his pup and friends here in the Chicagoland area, he has continued to discover other aspects of himself and BDSM. Most recently, the Master and Daddy aspects of his personality.
Pups have become a strong center in his world, and that dynamic has become the core of his D/s interactions. The love, loyalty, and affection of a pup gives him a sense of place, while providing the guidance, protection and companionship that a pup needs gives him a sense of purpose. These qualities underpin all D/s relationships for him, including Master/slave.
Seeing the large influx of pups moving into the Chicagoland area, he broached the subject with pup snuggles, and the Chicago Puppy Patrol (CPP) was born. He looks forward to developing CPP into an influential and positive force for the local BDSM and leather communities as well as the international communities through CPP’s connection to International Pups and Handlers (IPAH).
