So I hear this faint little attempt at a bark, softly behind me. I turn around to find Gary in a bit of a pickle. He got caught, and, opon reflection, one would hve to wonder how long he waited for someone to notice his dilemna. June, 2005.

“Sidepipe Sleeper”


The little man gets worn out and konks on his side. July, 2005.

“Gary Breach”


Yet again, Gary got himself in a pickle, long enough for J2 to share a good laugh over the whole ordeal. August, 2005.

“Gary Photoshoot”


As shot by Mark Kohlman at the Coal catalog photoshoot at the DDC Factory Floor, November, 2005.

“Gary Profile”


Stoic and proud. A profile in courage, literally. Shot by Goo. February, 2006.

Your website is sweet. And I don’t mean as in, “No way, Dude, that’s so sweet…” I mean sweet as in the yummy chocolate milkshake kind of sweet.

I love love love the photo titled €œAll The Things We Gary.€

I’ve been seriously thinking about sharing my life with a furry animal and this breed is quickly climbing up my list of possible companions. What a perfect looking pup!

I love doxies. Gary is no exception. I have been on the hunt down for one of my own. I haven’t found Steve yet, but when I do I will let you know.

How damn cute Gary is! I have three of the little buggers at home and raised two litters of them. I could of been that crazy non-fury mother of Gary’s but the difference was I wasn’t pregnant! Thank god…..So Gary is to precious for words. Our Doxies are: Oscar the main dude “Grandpa”, Lily the “Fertal Myrtle” and Patches the “little big man”. We love all little stretches! Great designs and we need some stuff for our gear, okay dear?

First, I stumbled onto a video of you lamenting America’s cultural downward spiral as illustrated by the motel sign story, and I thought, “right on!”. Then I saw your designs on this site, and they’re fantastic… but it was the Gary pages that prompted me to write. You portray the little dude with the sweetness and humor that speaks to fellow dog lovers. Nothing like the perpetual innocence and unconditional love of a furry little beast to remind us of our humanity… and, that 1 goofy little dog + 1 camera + Photoshop can equal hours of fun.

My miniature dachshund has done the same sleeve trick before too. Poor little things.

Posted by: Girl on 08/07/09 at 10:54 AM

He is absolutely precious … I have a dachshund/beagle mix name Charlie who seems to amuse me just as much as your Gary. She is a trip and thinks (or rather KNOWS) she is the prettiest dog in the world.

I love reading these and hope to hear more about Gary :)

Would love to link to draplin.com for you as well!

Thanks for all that you do!

Love these photos of Gary. I have a red doxie called Mike, and he’s the best furry friend I’ve ever had. “Sidepipe Sleeper” looks SOOOO familiar!
