The organization that rescued my dog Nemo is under a lot of financial pressure. A number of very needy dogs have come along in a very short period of time. The video above details just some of their current hard-luck cases. They've started an Indiegogo project to find some help.
Who the heck keeps abandoning these giant white dogs, anyway? The sheer number of dogs that end up at the Great Pyrenees Rescue of Northern California is bewildering. Regardless where the dogs come from, the team at GPRNC takes them in and gets them the best care possible. Watch the video, the stories Randy tells about these dogs get me every time.
Nemo is one of the puppies in their video. He came from the Necco litter and was super sick. It took a LOT of love and care to get him to me.
Nemo is amazing. I just adore him. This gentle, caring dude has added so much to my life. Nemo is with me nearly always, I think I'm driving the BB Ingenuity event coordinator crazy asking to get him in. He guards my daughter when she's in the tub. He thinks he can sneak into my bed, but he can't sneak anywhere, he's massive and a goofball.
If you are in NorCal and think you can handle a Pyr, please talk to them. If you can help foster dogs, please talk to them. If you can contribute a couple dollars, please do. I did.
Great Pyrenees Rescue of Northern California has launched an Indigogo project to raise $8k. Please help them.
(p.s. the art print rewards are done by the friends who introduced me to GPRNC, Nadine and Jason of Cloudforest Design)

Brew Cutlery raised over $20K on Kickstarter to make these handsome, heavy (150g) utensils with integrated bottle-openers in their handles; the backers who got the early sets are effusive in their praise of the look, materials (18/8 stainless steel) and craftsmanship (each piece is hand-finished). Not cheap, though: $50/set.
