A sad dog day

Guinness HeadshotAll dogs are special – but our black lab Guinness was really special.
He came to us via a breeder in the UK. He was 3 years old at the time and he had had some medical issues that we never got all the background on.

For the past 10 years he has been an integral part of our family and was strongly bonded to Beverly. He traveled with us to Utah, to Oregon, and loved going to Mavericks (a beach near where we live). Like all Labs he loved to eat, sleep, go for walks, then eat some more.

Unfortunately old age, and maybe some of his preexisting conditions, caught up with him. Guinness’ last day was March 11. He will be missed beyond words.

Santa Clara Police Blotter for April 12

If you are going to give a false name, probably should make sure it does not already have a warrant out on it.

Warrant Arrest – Misdemeanor

An officer conducted a vehicle enforcement stop in the area of El Camino Real and Kiely Blvd. He contacted the driver who provided him with a false name. The false name came back with a warrant hit. The driver was removed from the vehicle and arrested. When the driver realized her attempt to hide her true identity may land her in jail, she confessed and told the officer her real name. Unfortunately for the driver, she also had two outstanding warrants. She was arrested for the warrants and for providing false information to a police officer.

Connor’s photos go national

Sports Journal Logo

For the past several months Connor has been one of the staff photographers shooting Bay Area sports for The Sports Journal. He has shot the SF Giants, the SJ Sharks, and the SJ Earthquakes.

The Sports Journal is primarily web based, but they do publish a physical magazine. In the October 2015 issue an article titled ‘Drafting a Dynasty’ about the SF Giants included one of Connor’s photos !!. The pdf of the magazine is here, His photo is on page 57 of the magazine (or page 29 of the PDF).
I could not find a permanent link to the specific issue, so if the Oct issue is no longer available on-line, drop me a line and I can send you the PDF. 

Way to go Connor !! Hope this leads to more awesome photo opportunities.
