Perfect Imperfection

Our Summer weather is unusual this year. Below-average temperatures have been the norm the past few weeks. I've reveled in the cool mornings, soaking them in as we approach September, our hottest month of the year.
We've even had a few thunder storms pass though, leaving us with decorated skies but moving on before opening up into scary rumbles. These are the storms Kona and I like most.

Kona continues to work her recall on the trails. It's a marvelous accomplishment for a pup who was once too scared to look towards me while she scanned the scary world.
We tackled mini-training sessions and big-mini hills.
More and more, we're the most perfect, imperfect trail team ever.

Imperfections are what make life interesting.

You always have such beautiful sky photos.

Good to see you and Kona back on the trails. Enjoy your cooler weather! Perfectly imperfect is the best way to be.

Perfectly imperfect is the best! I see no leash on Kona during that recall - You must be making huge progress!!!!

I'm happy for your cooler weather. Maybe, just maybe, it'll stick around for September.

Happy things are going so imperfectly perfect!

I’ve enjoyed exploring your site! I too am a dog lover. I’m also a filmmaker at Columbia University in NYC and recently made a short romantic comedy about a guy who thinks his dog can talk. It’s called, "Dear Dog, I Love You", and it stars a very special rescued dog. We plan to use the finished product to raise support for shelters and the rescue process.

Because of your interest in the dog community, I wondered if you might do a post to your readers on your site or facebook about my film. We've already shot the movie, but need some assistance with the post-production and therefore have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds.
This is a special film because it stars the up and coming dog actor Paul Newman. A few short years ago, Paul Newman was found tied and starved in an abandoned garage. He was rescued by Suzanne Fitch of Mid-Atlantic Basset Hound Rescue, where he was matched with his wonderful trainer and caretaker, Karen. Now Paul Newman is one of the smartest and most talented dogs I know.

Please check out the trailer and campaign here:

Because of his amazing story, we think this is a great opportunity to draw attention to the animal rescue community. As mentioned above, once we finish our film, we hope to share it with shelters and the rescue community in hopes that some of the proceeds made from the film can help take care of dogs in need.

I understand if you don't do these sorts of things on your website, but would appreciate any little shout out you could give. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide any further information for you.
