and now we need a great dane.

My friend, Katie, snapped this photo of C and Cooper the Blue Great Dane of My Dreams at last night’s Yappy Hour; mostly for photographic evidence of the significant size difference of their craniums. If there was a competition for giantest of heads, Coop would take the trophy and all the glory. Doak — who is completely oblivious to his own large stature —  typically prefers the company of little four-legged friends; he likes his weenies tiny,…

a cute doodle gif to start the week

Brace yourselves, I’ve figured out how to make animated gifs in Photoshop. As if I needed any more motivation to cover this blog in photos of Doak. ETA: Here’s a helpful tutorial if you want to make some gifs yourself! It covers several versions of Photoshop.

tied up in knots

Some Doodle has an appointment at the salon tomorrow. We always like to snap a photo or two of him in all his shaggy glory for posterity before the annual summer shave-down. Come Wednesday, he’ll look like a new man. I’ve been on the fence about this tied shirt business for a while, but now I’m kind of almost on board.

His name is Otto, and he’s the sweetest little 14-week lab mix you ever did see. I proceeded to fill a memory card with snaps of him and the Doodle, and developed a mild case of puppy fever over the course of the afternoon. Those tiny paws get me…

the countdown is on…

… to our big move! We have just about a week left in our current shop. {Can someone puhlease tell me where June went?!} They’re moving our walk-in flower cooler next Saturday afternoon, which is the last major piece of the transition. We’ll spend the next seven days packing boxes, moving a few more pieces of furniture, and organizing the new space. Oh, and maintaining our regular hours and trying to keep things business-as-usual so…
