Beautiful Black Bear

It is time to not only say farewell to this blog, but also to yet another beloved pet.

Black Bear, our wonderful resident communist, passed away on December 3rd. He appeared to have had a stroke and fell asleep in my arms in the afternoon sun. He never woke up, and while his passing wasn't entirely peaceful, he left this world like a gentleman. He is with his sister Junior now.

We miss our Commie :(

As if losing four members of our animal family in 8 months wasn't enough, Teyla, our four-year-old Aussie was suddenly paralyzed. One minute she was playing fetch and the next, she couldn't move her back legs and could hardly move her front right. We're 99% sure it was an FCE, which is a stroke-like event in the spine. She has been doing her best to recover, and we're doing all we can to help her, but the chances of her coming back 100% are slim. If any dog can beat the odds, though, it's our warrior Toot!

I'm starting a new blog over at Wordpress for anyone who cares to join me. I began this one as a place where "fans" could receive news about our fan films, but since we haven't made many of those lately, I decided it was time to move on to a place with a bit more of a streamlined format.

Here is the link to my new blog:

I hope you are all well!
