Let’s face it. Holiday shopping can be extremely stressful. Especially when you have that person in your life who seems to have everything. You search high and low for something that's unique, but ideas seem to be void. You desperately want to get them something meaningful but usually come up short, usually grabbing something off the shelf.Read More
Several years ago we brought home our second dog, Cooper, from a local Chihuahua rescue. He was adjusting nicely to his new home. One night my wife and I had an evening out, leaving my mom to watch my two young children and two dogs. We left some instructions for my mom about the kids and the dogs, and went on our way.
We arrived home late that evening...Read More
I spent this past Saturday at the Dog Walk of The Dead event (think Halloween family event complete with dogs and people in costume). There was the Weiner dog who was a hot dog, a corgi who was a Game of Thrones dragon, skeleton dogs...Read More

I will never know such a burden or call myself, but I readily acknowledge that they are to be thanked and praised for their selfless, and often dangerous work.Read More
For this post I’m sharing about the inspiration behind the Girl Scout - Chihuahua.
This one reaches back to some of my earliest memories. I have a sister who is 3 years older than me. All through elementary school, she was a part of the Brownies and Girl Scouts. My mother also helped in her troop, so I would be taken along.Read More
For the next several posts, I’m going to be giving you an inside look into my new series “Uniform Pets”. I’ll be sharing the insights and inspiration behind each piece.
The series as a whole came about as I was thinking about how we identify and categorize, specifically, dress code pertaining to jobs/organizations, as well as breeds of pets. We know a police officer in a crowd of people because we’ve identified their uniform.Read More
