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.

Court date set for Carrie Statler over death of Xavier

In early December Rough Road Rescue was alerted to two dogs left abandoned on a Brewer, Mo. property. Upon arrival one dog was found already deceased.

It was later discovered that the deceased Boxer was owned by Carrie Statler of Perryville, Mo. Statler was charged with animal neglect for the death of Xavier. A Jan. 28 court date has been set.

Eye witness accounts say that the dogs had been left unattended for some time and were not receiving regular feedings or water. A recent winter storm had left temperatures near zero.

Necropsy reports showed that Xavier had died from malnourishment, dehydration, and exposure. Lack of care and nothing more than a wooden box for shelter left Xavier unable to produce enough body heat to maintain in Missouri's frigid temperatures. He died cold, hungry, and alone.
