This blog is about dogs [cur-dogs, stockdogs, pit bulls], and also about wild birds, mountain lions, earthquakes, reptiles, wildfires, water policy, graphic design, architecture, food, farming and good reads, with occasional posts on the jagged and the shiny.
I live in Southern California with some border collies, a young cur-dog and an even younger cur-dog. My wonderful old pit bull Bounce died on March 25, 2011 - best dog ever. Like most of my dogs, she came from the excellent local shelter. [To see more pound pups, check out the Pet Harbor widget in the opposite sidebar.]
California native: family's been here since the 1800s.
