We are all uncool project

Social media is a funny thing.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and connections Maggie and I have made due to social media.  Our circles of friendship and support would be much smaller without social media.  But the internet definitely isn’t our whole or ‘real’ life, and I admit social media can turn even a charmed life… Read more →

Dog Artist on Instagram

The dog world is wonderful, crazy, energetic planet populated by passionate, inspiring, caring humans and their equally amazing dogs.  I could write a book (maybe even a multi-volume set) on the things I’ve learned from my Adventures with Maggie, from personal growth to eye-opening events.

When other dogs are begging, barking and gobbling, she’ll turn her nose up and drop the treat on the ground. (Fortunately, she’s not at all selective about tennis balls; she loves them all equally.) I… Read more →

Our non-traditional, small-scale, very-much-American Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving usually conjures up visuals of long tables covered with harvest vegetables and a giant turkey, surrounded by family members crowded inside to escape the end-of-autumn cold. But we live in Los Angeles, where our weather averages 78 degrees in November, and my family is anything but big. As you might expect, our Thanksgiving here is definitely not traditional in… Read more →
