Give ‘em hell, Slidell! Or, at least, make ‘em think you’re going to. We all know though that beneath that tough exterior of furrowed brow and frown, you’re really just one big softie. Throughout this project, I found myself thinking a lot about the contrast between how a dog looks and how a dog loves. I’ve discovered time and time again working with animals, that it mirrors that of humans. I wonder how different our world would be if we fought to see beneath the tough exteriors of one another and, rather than backing away, decided to press in.
