Q

Anonymous asked:

Where do you get your griffons? They are adorable

A

Thank you! They are absolutely the greatest dogs ever. Chunk, the black one, came from an incredible, amazing, loving woman named Renee Westerhuis, in Arroyo Grande, California. She runs Precious Paws Brussels Griffons, and breeds them. But she’s not like any other breeder you’ve ever known. Her dogs are her family. They all live in her house, sleep in her bed, and She loves them and cares for them like She would a child.

When Chunk came to me at 10 weeks, he was the most healthy, well-adjusted, loving, yet confident dog, because he had been raised by such an incredibly doting and adoring woman. I know this because i visited him twice at her house when he was a puppy, before he was old enough for me to take him home.

Griffs are the best breed of dog ever. I will own them all my life, and will always return to Renee to get new ones. I didn’t with Sprout (my fawn colored dog) only because I just saw her one day on the street, in a basket, and immediately fell in love). I recommend Renee wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Good luck!

The dream ring … someday.

Existential series, limited edition. Ponderances for the hand, by @lovinganvil

The text on the ring is a condensed version of a passage from Fratricides, a novel by one of the artist’s favorite authors, Nikos Kazantzakis, and reads:

death i do not fear you
and suddenly he felt free
what does it mean to be free
he who does not fear death is free
is there a great joy no!

This ring is available now at lovinganvil dot com. Please support this incredibly gifted artist because she is not only an incredible talent, but she is also a uniquely kind and generous individual.

Coco is indeed a truly rare find.

Mom! I’m dying of thirst and that dumb tortoise is hogging ALL the water! This is so unfair! #chunk #missy #diplomatically #brusselsgriffon #griffonbraxellois #griffy #griff #griffsofinstagram #griffoftheday #griffstagram #grifflover #petitbrabancon #tortoise #landtortoise #deserttortoise (at Mum & Dad’s House, West Hills, California)

Missy.

I’d named her after a girl I’d met at sleepaway camp, who’d had a long mullet, was kind of a bully, and was probably one of my first girl crushes.

Missy the Tortoise was just one of countless tortoise my Mum would bring home to live with us during the twenty-some-odd years she worked first the Los Angeles Zoo.

I guess people who’d keep these bizarre animals as pets weren’t very careful or watchful, allowing for their frequent escape… and, for whatever reason, once found, these guys got turned in to the zoo, rather than the pound. From there, they usually ended up back at my place.

Although it was always my Mum who’d play nurse to the tortoises when they were sick and dote over their eggs when nesting, and eventually the babies when hatched, I was always their favorite human.

I know this because their favorite food is rose pedals. Especially the ones that grow on my Mum’s prized rose bushes. Oh the sacrifices that must be made for the animals we love. The risks aren’t quite as high these days, now that my Mum isn’t around anymore.

Missy is our last tortoise. For a while there, we had so many at once (Missy, Tank, Flower, FooFee… ). That’s a lot for a half acre yard. Especially when they fight. They’re fast!

I hope Missy lives forever.

Good morning, boys. #lakings #gokingsgo #toyotasportscenter (at Toyota Sports Center)

Soooooo, this just happened. Yup, just kicking it at the Toyota Sports Center, waiting for my Los Angeles Kings to start practicing, and in walks one of the greatest Kings of all time, Luc Robitaille.

People who can just look straight into the camera and take a selfie are so lucky. Whenever I take a selfie, my eyes go all crazy, and I end up looking autistic.

Very frustrating; dammit. (at City Of Sherman Oaks)
