I’ve seen 3 happy snowball fights on the way to the office. Good to see SC kids enjoying snow.

Does Your Dog Love You?

Don’t read to the end if you have had dogs like my Schaefer or now Willie and Waylon in your life 🙂 You love your dog. Does your dog love you back? Is the love that an owner feels for her dog reciprocated? That’s the question that a group of Swedish and Danish researchers wanted …

The Four Quarters of My Week

I was talking about calendars and work weeks with a friend earlier and I tried to explain how my convoluted brain processes the week. I don’t like to think of time in terms of hours or days. Rather, I’m much more productive (and happy) when I can segment things into their proper places in the …

My Jerry Maguire Moment

I’m writing this while sitting at the bar waiting for takeout from my fav pizza place dive in my old/new city of Columbia. This time it feels more permanent.

Missing Sylvia

It was hard enough to lose Schaefer back in September, but it’s also hard to look back at all the great pups I’ve had the privilege to share a few years with like Sylvia Blue (the infamous 3 legged husky): Miss that old smelly dog these days.

Here’s To the Worst Dog Ever

Schaefer and Sam in Connecticut | Flickr – Photo Sharing! To say he was a good dog is a far stretch. However, he was the best friend a young guy growing into a man could have. Ever since that first cold winter in Connecticut for grad school, I’ve had my troublesome buddy to keep me …
