all in the family

like jan brady i grew up with an overachiever for a sister (insert cindy, cindy, cindy)…i’ve grown to accept this in my later years which is why i can now proudly pass her talent on to you. she’s an immensely talented artist and has started taking commissions for her pet portraits. she did one for dave & i of kody and sage shortly after kody passed away and i can tell you it warms the cockles of my heart several times a day. if you’re in the market for warmed cockles please check out...

not unlike last spring, here and here, fletcher & watson's hooligan ways once again get the better of me.  those brothers can take me down but they can't take me out. ...

permanence

by | Tuesday, September 23, 2008 |

i think buddha hit on something when he said nothing is permanent. our pack number which we thought was a firm 14 is apparently firm like an old piece of celery

• we believe in hemp, conservation, and the pursuit of lessening our footprint on the earth
• we believe in the commitment, love and boundless spirit of dogs
