On Sunday afternoon Goldie and I were taking our usual walk on the campus of Occidental College, enjoying the warm, sunny weather, when she stopped to poop. She assumed her normal crouch position then suddenly started screaming with an intensity I’d never heard from her before. At first, I thought one of her dew claws…Read more Rough Times for My Dog Goldie

It was pretty warm, so it felt more like Stroll Your Mole, but it was fun and sooo rewarding. Our team, Adopt Me Rescue, raised $14,101! I want to thank all of…Read more Raising Money for Rescue Dogs

Last year I randomly chose the sloth as my subject without realizing…Read more A Smiling Sloth Says it All!

When a friend suggested I put some of my holiday ornaments on Etsy in December, I never expected people to buy them, especially since there are already a gazillion super cute items there. I've been giving my ornaments away for more than 10 years, and hadn't considered selling them,…Read more Keeping it Simple with Lucky Sean O’Sloth
