After watching the Red Penguins Documentary about the NHL’s brief foray into Russia in the 90’s I ended up on an eBay adventure to acquire this beauty.

Hugo has determined that this is the most comfortable way to watch TV with me.

Today Tak celebrated turning 14 by having his first surgery. He is now short one front tooth and had an approximately golf ball sized mass from his neck.

To protect his stitches he will be wearing his bespoke sock hat for the next couple of weeks.

I thought briefly about having ambitious afternoon plans…

Then Luna snuggled in on the couch with me so it’s nap time.

More often than not Hugo is lazy but every now and then something will really catch his interest.

I am excited to finally be able to talk about what I have been up to at 1Password for the last year!

Today is siblings day again and after a year of quarantines it has sent me through photo memories of my brother and I.

Who needs two beds when you have a BFF like Hugo.

Just received my new office decoration this morning compliments of @IneffectiveMath’s HockeyViz

Two days in a row Tak has attempted to avoid Luna by helping me with my meetings.

After the taste of spring last week Luna seems to have fully embraced hibernation until summer.

It has been a decade since this experience and given the state of social media I cannot really say this person was wrong.

Luna and Hugo are putting up a united front of warm snuggles after I made them go outside this morning in “feels like -18°” weather

Fresh muffins!

The dogs are enjoying the sunny, spring like, weather after their afternoon walk.

As is tradition #SelfiesWithoutGrant

Bitcoin and other crypto currencies are the face of Silicon Valley’s hubris.

Poorly addressing problems that don’t really exist and crushing the environment to do so. All in the name of generating value for the early adopters, yet another form of gate keeping in tech.

The evolution of an afternoon nap in the sun. ☀️🐕

In a house full of dog toys these two will always fixate on the same one, can’t risk missing out.

Hugo’s super power is the ability to make sure there is a pillow in the right spot for his sun snoozes

Today Luna made a show of the fact that she has no patience for the cat.
