We’d be remiss if we pretended that Meatbagz was just a two woman show. Because it’s not. We’ve got a whole, fabulous supporting cast, and no, we’re not talking about our husbands, suppliers, fellow artists, or local post office.
We’re talking about our dogs.
This is Curry, Mack’s little sausage of a rescue. Granted, she spends most of her time buried under the covers dreaming of warmer climes, but she’s always up for a good cuddle or two while fresh prints are drying. Plus, Kate likes to chase her around saying “You little sausage! Curry, you’re a little sausage!”
She doesn’t seem to mind too much, because even she knows she’s a little sausage.
This is Daisy, Mack’s other mutt. Daisy enjoys chasing squirrels up trees and laying in the sun. She’s no sausage, but we’ll tell you one thing: she is by far the favorite pup on our friendly UPS man’s route. Bitter Phil (we call him “Bitter Phil”-he likes it) brings her bones, pig’s ears, and other treats when he comes and drops off fresh Meatbagz at Mack’s. Daisy wags her tail and acts happy.
They have a very complex relationship (and she helps balance out the fact that we’re making Bitter Phil deliver big, heavy boxes of bags on a regular basis).
And last but certainly not least, this is McCoy. Actually, he’s Mr. Steve McCoy Esq., but he’s a pretty easy-going guy so he’ll answer to just McCoy. He’s Kate’s buddy. He’s been known to draw customers to ye olde Meatbagz booth with his innate sweetness and dreamy brown eyes. Oh, and he enjoys kicking the soccer ball around when Mack and Kate have been stuck working inside too long and need some fresh air.
Sure, they may be canine and they may be unpaid, but they’re still members of our crazy little company and we couldn’t (and wouldn’t want to) do it without them.
