The day the Super Bowl trophy came for a visit

Eric with Vince Lombardi Trophy

This can be a lonely place. Not usually, but when it’s a week away from the Super Bowl and yours truly is the only one who isn’t losing sleep over the excitement of an Indiana team heading to … Miami is it? … one can definitely feel like a square peg. And so I turn…

Bye-bye, Holidog

We are fast approaching what is probably the huggiest weekend of the year. It's closing weekend . The last two days of the season. And Brendan is going to make this one last. This sweet little fellow's aunt entered this photo in our Facebook Fan Page Photo Contest. They win two one-day tickets for 2010….

“Hi” from Shanghai

Holidog in Shanghai

They got me. Again. You may remember this story from a few years back. The Gravity Group engineers pulled off a clever ploy by sending a little beanie-version of Holidog around the world (literally) on a “voyage.” For months they sent anonymous photos and emails; we never figured out who was behind Holidog’s jet-setting ways….

Joy to the World

A wonderful grandma named Joy sent us this story and photo: Attached is a picture of my granddaughter. She is two and is in love with Holidog. (I only got this picture by telling her I was sending it to Holidog). She was having a little trouble with the idea of "potty training" and I…

“Who dat?”

Kevin emailed us with this darling story earlier this week: Earlier this evening my 18-month-old grandson and I were looking at the computer. I opened the Holiblog page, and Owen pointed and recognized the picture of "Ha-d-dawg" and "Sorry Sam" (we will work on the "f" sound before next summer's trip). He then pointed to…

Mea gulpa

Have you ever made a teeny, tiny error — and gotten clobbered for it? Happened the other day. Around here, we take our hard hats seriously. When construction is ongoing, the hats are on. And the swath is wide. Heck, even the Big Guy wears one. (You thought I meant Will, didn't you? Well, he…

The dog days of winter

Woof! Poor pup is encased in ice. Bless Rick (our graphic artist), he sent me this photo from this morning. I’d just cranked up my space heater, trying to talk myself into heading out into the park to find just such a photo.

Holidog: Unleashed

Well here we are; another Groundhog Day. No shadow is good news. Just like we got a year ago on Brown Dog’s Day. Those reports from “Holidog’s Voyage” were a kick. In case your memory needs refreshing, we started receiving emails from Holidog back in July of 2005. It seems Holidog was inspired by The…

Puppy love

Korey, one of the four Gravity Group guys, likes to stay in touch. Right before the holidays he wrote to tell us that Lord Chadwick had just become Lord Dadwick. You’ll be pleased to note that all four of those super-intelligent, wildly creative, admittedly geeky engineers are tender-hearted family men. Here’s the latest missive from…
