I know it may sound trivial in everyday life but when your life revolves around your 4 legged friends it is good to have personality that isn't necessarily going to throw you a curve ball when you come home and you aren't really in the mood for much conversation. Or the line of questioning is just a matter of a couple of tails wagging and the occassional lick, lick lick of the face. This are times when I am grateful for the simple life. Simple in terms of I have 2 little f
It's raining cats and dogs! What?
OK...that would hurt a lot if I or anyone went outside in this weather and got pelted with a bunch of cats and dogs especially if they were the size of a Lab or Retriever. I guess the small ones would be the calm before the storm and get ready for the big guys. So, I asked myself what does it mean and this is what I came up with.

After his dog Santina of 21 years (yes, 21 years) passed away Mr. Barones took on a project after learning about the number of dogs being euthanized from over populated shelters. Mr Barones would paint 5500 portraits of dogs that have been euthani
Wisconsin Puppy Mill Map
This years pet expo was amazing! I saw a lot of different vendors with every type of dog picture, t-shirt, statuary, blankets, pillows, homemade needlepoint. You name it they had it and it was wonderful to see all the different ways people were celebrating dog culture. But with all the good and wonderful stories and images came the reality of what is going on in the world of dogs when it comes to "where do they come from"? Here you will see a map of Puppy Mills in the stat
I might say genius...others might say
This moment has taken a while but worth the long hours it has taken to finally arrive at a new design ready for print. I have several but this one is special because it is a bit unusual to use braille as a t-shirt design. Or at least I think it is unique. I have never seen the symbols used to define a cause or simply a word that celebrates dogs. Why you ask? My answer is simple. No matter the letters or symbols you use to define or spell "dog" it is a celebration of dog
