a worthy cause

by | Friday, October 17, 2008 |

i got an email from one of our customers alerting me to this cause that i think is a worthy one.  operation baghdad pups is rescuing dogs out of iraq and afghanistan that have been befriended by our troops. ratchet is one particular dog that is in need of clemency so he can be brought to the u.s. and adopted by the soldier that rescued him (who is currently under military investigation for befriending the dog that saved her life). please sign the petition and pass it on to as many...

because i have very (very) small eyes and my maiden name is “wint”, i have justly earned the nickname “kym squint”. not sure why i would impart such information to you? you might have been thinking i had huge, lovely eyes and i’ve now shattered that image…if that’s the case i apologize. the small eyes really only adversely affect me when i’m laughing. it is not physically possible for me to keep my eyes open when i laugh, which is why when dave sent me a link to this video the subject line was...

over the years dave has become a fabulous photographer - that is, of course, my unbiased opinion.  he originally got into it so he could do the product shots and dog photos for our catalogs but over the years it's become a great creative outlet for him and he really enjoys it.  since he hasn't had time to set up a flicker site to share some of his photographs i've decided to take it upon myself to post one my favorite shots every sunday.  this is a shot...
