Dawgz On The Stairz

As our renovation project nears closer to completion (still some 3-5 weeks out), we’ve begun letting dogs Ranger and Shadow up into the second floor for lookabouts, and to get them more comfortable with the (still-unfinished) stairs. Ranger has the legs to allow a smoother more refined traversal, but Shadow with her stunted stems demonstrates a somewhat more unorthodox method of galumphing down the steps, finishing things off with a stair dive at the end that fully skips the starter step, but she sticks the landing. I score it a 10!

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."
