"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Must Love Dogs

LA is a really big place, and many people move here without knowing anybody. The park nearby has "Adopt a Friend" every other week where they trot out shelter animals; the cutest puppies, the smallest kittens, the great with kids older dog....all proudly wearing neckerchiefs.

Having a furry companion in LA is something I've wanted for so long, I even tried not shaving my legs to see if that could somehow compensate. It didn't. And our apartment lease agreement prohibits pets.

So....what to do?

Live Puppy Cam!

This is actually the same breeder who had this same camera set up in her home last year. She had streamed it from the internet so that when she was out, she could always check in on them. And it became a huge hit.

You'll see why.

Even if it's just a few puppies in a separate window on your monitor, it still makes life in LA a little less lonely.



  1. Also, you have Spaz. And no, I don't mean ME.

  2. You can always dive AAAALLLLL the way to Santa Monica to play with the adorable Schatze, if you'd like! She'd be so happy to meet you!

  3. You can come visit my Ella and her friend Preston any time you need a dose of therapeutic puppy love! I hope you can get your own dog soon. They're the best.

  4. Shibas are my favorite!! Oh great. Another thing to check on daily ;)


Play nice.
