You've Got Mail and Stimulating Stumpy (#5)
Stumpy recently received a calendar from our friend
Stella over at Carny Dog
Thanks Stella! Your assistant takes some GREAT pictures! We love the calendar! Is that sweet June baby you or a relative?
I decided to turn the envelope into a "Stimulating Stumpy" opportunity and stuffed it with her favorite chicken jerky.
You may remember that on January 26 Stumpy was honored to be inducted into the "Would Have Made A Great Carny Dog" on the Carny Dog FaceBook Fan Site. Susan, Stella's personal assistant has posted some great pictures of Elite Road Dogs. You should check it out!
I found Susan and Stella a couple years ago,I think. My insatiable appetite for discovering/traveling America led me to a series of her photos documenting all things Carny. I've since discovered her interests are not limited to dogs and the midway. Susan documents threads of American life through her photography and writings. Pitcherlady, is a good place to start, if you're interested. I'd be hard pressed to attempt to define Susan's work. She's conscious. She's aware. She's paying attention and she cares!
Thanks, again, Susan and Stella!
