Being the adventures of a young pup whose primary interests are Dehners, Wescos, and Carolinas
Essentially, this is a place for Bootdog ('atsa me!) to publish his writings on boots, uniforms, dogfolk, and just about anything else that strikes his fancy.
Well, Santa's Slave Auction (produced by Alameda County Leather Corps) was a rousing success. While I didn't manage to raise quite the sum I raised last year, I am still quite proud to have contributed to the $4,000 we raised for In Memory and SAVE. Thanks to everyone I bootblacked for, and to those who bid on my basket and bootblacking services.
SPECIAL NOTE: The mistress who purchased my bootblacking basket pointed out that a couple of items were missing from the basket. I haven't heard from you, and I want to get those items to you, but I have no way to get in touch with you. Please e-mail me.
I also want to thank everyone in the South Bay for allowing me to help raise funds for Pam Hunter. For those who aren't aware, Pam was in a car accident in October and is facing a lengthy recovery; a group of people in the South Bay (SM Odyssey and SCCLA members in particular) decided to raise money to provide support for Pam (particularly covering her rent) while she recovers. Again, I am proud to have played a teensy, tiny part in raising those funds, and I'd just like to thank everyone who let me polish their boots, as well as those who stopped by just to give me belly rubs.
Ain't been able to work much on the site lately. It amazing how not being stranded in a hotel room in a foreign country can really eat into your web-building.
I'm still working on essays regarding the Hanky Code and "The New Puritanism" (and I know you're all just drooling in anticipation for them). Also, my Uniform and Bear pages are in some serious need of revision (they're the versions I had on my old site, and they don't quite match my new format).
