Adventure Dog

Well Spinner and I have done a ton of hiking lately. Here's one from our very very steep climb up the Appalachian Ridge behind our friends Chris and Mick in Ashville.

Snowed In!

Well who would have thunk it. Snowed in at Fletcher for the Golden Retriever nationals. Karen and Rushy did great - first place in STD and only a tunnl entry from the same in JWW.

Swamp Collie Coffee

Well, a new little venture starting up here - Swamp Collie Coffee. I finally decided to jump into the roasting business. Spent so much time brewing the perfect cup I guess it made sense to start roasting it as well. Here's a quick snap of the sample roaster at work. A fine Guatemalan on its way.
