As evidenced by our album cover, t-shirts, koozies, music vid, and whatnot -- we, at Team NEAR BEER, are big fans of Canis lupus familiaris, aka DOGS. We like cats too. Hell, we are fans of most animals. Animals teach us how to be better humans.
Edna, the wiley bow-legged Boston terrier who graces our album cover was my bud. A strange dog indeed. But a great one. I adopted her in 2006. I didn't know much about her prior-to-adoption life but she had a solid list of health issues and behavioral quirks that seem to point to a less than happy existence. But with patience and love, Edna became my loyal and farty best friend. It was not uncommon for the two of us to stay up late, listening to Bruce Springsteen records. She was a big fan of The River. I'd drink a beer. Give her a head scratch. And she'd snort and fart and nustle up for more. She brought so much joy into the 13 years I got to spend with her. I am a happier person because of Edna. She has since shuffled off this mortal coil but lives on in my fond memories and in the NEAR BEER artwork.
Anyhow, there are so many animals in need. Please adopt. Please support organizations who do the good stuff to find animals loving forever homes.
