About six months ago I decided that I needed to get a bit of a life outside of design. Of course when a calling is your profession, it’s hard to ever really get away from it. But I did try, really. I had always wanted a dog, but never really took it any further than an idea. But since the time was right to start something new, Tamara and I did a lot of searching for the perfect breed. When we finally got to the “W’s” we knew we had found it. A weimaraner of course. Only after joining the Weimaraners (Pool) at flickr did I realize that you’re never that far away from designers. There are a lot of designers out there with weims as best friends. I never saw the connection before, but now it’s really obvious.

I’m not the only person that’s made this connection. Callie Neylan (a recent MFA graduate) makes a similar observation in her post Dogs and Modernism. She comments that weims are the only dogs that she sees in magazines like ID, Dwell, Design Within Reach etc. It’s hard to argue the point, they are the best breed out there. I’m being slightly biased of course, but when you have a dog like Maddie smiling back at you, it’s hard to argue.
