Into the Wild

Matt Johnson Articles

I finally watched Into the Wild tonight and naturally it really got me thinking (hate it when movies do that). The main character, driven to escape “society” goes on a quest to find happiness. The movie chronicles this quest as goes from abandoning the most sacred human relationship, family, to isolating himself in the depths of the Alaskan wilderness. At …

Dar's Cat

Matt Johnson Articles

While meandering through the World of Warcraft the other day I was chatting with a paladin by the name of Dariath, more commonly referred to as Dar. Dar was complaining about one of his cats who meows/heowls constantly because she is in heat and it keeps him up all night. This led to a discussion of the many other things …

Party with the Anteater

Matt Johnson Articles

For the longest time I’ve been getting emails that chronicle the life of Pua the tamandua. I am extremely impressed by the relationship that Pua and his owner have. Not only do they two go on many adventures and have a fantastic relationship, but its all available for us to read and watch. Pua & Tamanduagirl are living proof that …

‘Tis the Open Season

Matt Johnson Articles

Have you ever witnessed the first day of hunting season in a small Montana town? Me neither, until this weekend. While visiting some friends who have recently relocated to Libby, Montana, I had the great opportunity to witness an entire town of 2500 people wearing orange like it was green on St. Patty’s day. Which I don’t blame them for, …

Wild Animals in the Garden

Matt Johnson Articles

As Scott mentioned in his blog, we dream daily about the many ways we can have animals be integrated as a part of our lives. I often ask customers what pets they have at home and am repeatedly baffled by the response I hear too often that they don’t have any because they live in an apartment. In my eyes …

A Mother’s Best Friend

Brittani Articles

Being a mom is much more fun and rewarding than I ever could have imagined. When Bass reaches for me to pick him up my heart nearly swells with love for the little imp and I have to look around and double check that it is really me that he wants to love and not someone more worthy standing behind …

Hello Friends! So I am not an electronically correct person. It took me a year to figure out my smart phone and now it is falling apart and I dread the day that Matt makes me get a new one that I will have to spend hours agonizing over how to check my messages and which picture should be on …
