Bow Wow Wow Yippee Yo Yippee Yay...and a gift too!


While perusing the February issue of House Beautiful, I took note of the comments of editor in chief Stephen Drucker. He asks the question; " Of all the things you own, what would make you smile when you come through the door?" For him, it's a Ron Galella paparazzi print of Twiggy on a London stoop in the 60's.

For me: It' my dogs.

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like;
and I'm sure he understands,
when he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;
then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
but never a friend like that.

W. Dayton Wedgefarth








The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
Samuel Butler




Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love, faith, and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.

Roger Caras
