Product Review: NutriSource Soft & Tender Lamb Dog Treats offered us the opportunity to try Nutrisource Soft & Tender Lamb Dog Treats. It's hard to say no to treats! We use them for training and just plain living (Elka is particularly fond of her post-potty treats and her bottle return treats), so it's nice to try a variety of treats with good ingredients, made in the USA!

Black and White Sunday October 12 2014

So in my Internet wanderings, I found this website, , which said it had "image processing utilities". Okay. Like what?

Well, they've got an ACII image generator, which didn't work out so well with this particular picture. But the oil painting generator? Nailed it!

I mean, in a lot of ways, I guess it still just looks like the original picture (I selected the "medium" brush for this one. If you come back on Wednesday, you can see a picture with the "heavy" brush!)

Goodbye, Summer

Elka and I have different perspectives on fall. 

She likes pouncing at the leaves when they blow. She likes sniffing around leaf piles, because to her, they must just be this magical collection of smells.

Chelsea at Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus

I saw this all-natural girl on the Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus Facebook page and had to share! She just blew my mind.

Chelsea is 2 years old, natural ears and tail, black and tan. She was picked up as an underweight stray, and she's blind. But everything about Chelsea is what I love about the Doberman breed! Remember BRAINS and beauty!
