In the last issue of the eZine, I asked if any of your four-footed friends shared your shop with you. All I can say is thank you for not starting out your many email responses with “Well, duh!” Apparently, woodshops are havens not only for woodworkers, but for their pets as well. I can’t say I am surprised. Pets have been enriching people’s live for thousands of years, and they are amazingly adaptable. Even so, I have to say that I was touched by the comments many of you sent about furry-faced shop buddies, past and present. You can read some of them for yourself in our Feedback department.

P.S. And here is my 11-year old English pointer, Gilly. She is also accomplished at sleeping in my woodworking shop.
