Hey, We’re Walkin’ Here!


To say they “walk together” is incorrect. While they technically traverse the block at the same time, they do so with distinctly unsynched personality and energy levels, leaving me in the middle trying to keep their leads untangled.

Shadow’s all about slow and steady and sniffing out all the latest news on the street, marking where appropriate and finding the perfect place to poop.

Ranger’s still too young to have anything to do with patience. Instead she’s all about soaking everything in simultaneously and forgetting it just as quickly — all the while ripping up and down front and back and sideways along the length of her 15 foot radius of freedom.

Shadow’s seen it all. Ranger ain’t seen nothing yet.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
