"Some People Call Me The Space Cowboy"
"One of the few ways a Jackalope can be caught is by leaving out a bottle of whiskey, as it is the Jackalopes sustenance of choice. It has also been said that the jackalope can convincingly imitate any sound, including the human voice. It uses this ability to elude pursuers, chiefly by using phrases such as "There he goes! That way!" During days of the Old West, when cowboys gathered by the campfires singing at night, jackalopes could often be heard mimicking their voices."
Sam Schechter, with Buster
"I currently have two dumb cats who think they're super
smart (both rescues, Kiwi and D'Artagnan) and my family's
first dog, Buster, a French Briard, recently passed away a
couple months ago, but we saved him from a kill shelter
mere days before he was to be euthanized. We had him with
us for 17 short years and was loved dearly! The photo
attached is from when he was 13 and still as spry as when
we first got him (I'm the one awkwardly perched next to him
on the rock)"

A portion of the proceeds from this artists work will go to Homeward Bound Dog Rescue.
