About Me

Twenty years ago I asked a Tarot card reader what would I be doing when I was 50. She replied, “I see you doing something so wildly creative, it defies a job title.” Only recently did I realize that was a slick way of saying, “I have no idea of what you’ll be doing.” But that prediction kept me charging ahead to the fifties with zeal and anticipation. Now that the future is today, I’m ready for anything!

Jerry, the Grateful Dog

We didn't set out to find a dog that looked like Watch. But dawg, if Jerry doesn't resemble him.

Jerry is one of two Weimaraner/Chesapeake puppies who was rescued from a neglectful setting by two sisters. The name "Jerry" was chosen by Wyatt and Mike, the latter of whom idolized Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. (Sharp-eyed Deadheads will note the collar.)

Day by day, inch by inch, Jerry's growing more comfortable and is beginning to fill out. And still calls answering our "Puppy Wanted" ad are coming in. I wish I could take them all!
