This is that weird first post where I should probably write some kind of long, ambling dissertation on what it means to us, as artists, to have some sort of patronage to enable us to continue our creative output. I won't bore you with that. Instead, I'll just go ahead and say a pre-emptive "thank you" for signing up to support us. Or, if you haven't already done so, I'd like to go ahead and ask that you please sign up to support us. If you don't, you'll probably feel guilty about not doing so the rest of the day. Can you walk around with that guilt on your shoulders? Eating away at you like guilt termites? No, of course you cant. No mere mortal can resist the subconscious pain of the guilt termite. 

At the very least, enjoy these photos of our dogs and think about how they'll have to eat the really cheap dog food from the 99¢ store that's probably laced with weird chemicals if you don't support us. 

Oh, you don't like dogs? What kind of person doesn't like dogs? Well, you're entitled to your opinion, but you should still feel guilty about the 99¢ store dog food.

Again, thanks for any amount that you can give. We sincerely appreciate it, even if we don't understand why you don't like dogs.
