Photography is a passion of mine but I do have a life and other interests. I am also passionate about my family, animals, and life in general and yes, sometimes that means some quirky stuff. I wrote a column on Examiner.com for seven years and with their recent closure I've been transferring many of my old article's into the blog.
So here you'll find a little business, a little personal, and a little bit of everything in between. It's all just a bit of a mish-mash here but I hope that you'll enjoy the images I share, what you read, and will return often.

Puppy with chemical burns makes miraculous recovery
Clay: Puppy on the mend at Caruthersville, MO Humane Society
A little over a week ago a seven week old puppy was found wandering alone on a road in Pemiscot County, MO. On his head and face were severe chemical burns judged to be about a week old and left untreated, his whole head swollen from infection. It’s unimaginable the pain he had endured.

This young male Pit Bull puppy, now called “Clay” was taken to the Caruthersville Humane Society. There he has been received treatment and is reportedly doing well. Animal Abuse officer Karol Wilcox says “It’s amazing everything this pup has overcome. We just didn’t think he was going to pull through. But after seeing what a loving little thing he was and his desire to live, we had to give him every chance possible. We just know this little guy is alive for a reason and meant to do something with his life.”
