The word "convicted" has dual meanings. 1. The act or process of finding a person guilty of a crime especially in a court of law. or 2. A strong persuasion or belief. I know the first definition all too well - being a convicted felon a number of times over. I have never felt convicted... Continue Reading →



Our page does something really cool. Each month it gives me a synopsis of insights about how the page is "performing." The one stat that continues to amaze me is that consistently we reach over 1.1 million people every month. It doesn't mean we have 1.1 million followers, but our 40,000 followers continue to share...

Spiritual Gifts

Sometimes, keeping up with L O N G bois and the House Hippos page can feel like another full-time job. Whether it's uploading pics and videos, updating my store to offer new items, creating things like calendars and soon to come - stickers, writing blogs, or just trying to interact with fans, it's a lot....

So, I've been begging Jeffrey to write a blog post for months. He finally did and I'm not even in it. 🙄 But, I figure if I share it and you all see how great his perspective is, maybe he'll keep writing and eventually dedicate a whole one to me. 🙃 Life is so surreal... Continue Reading →

Apricot Scrub

Have you ever had a memory so vivid that each time you’re reminded of it, it’s like you’re immediately transported back to that exact moment? Every time I take a shower and wash my face, it’s like déjà vu. It’s not squeezing out a dollop of face wash onto my fingers, or rubbing it into... Continue Reading →

Our Purpose

When I started this page and attached group last year, my sole intention was to share our dogs with the world. Quickly it became much more than that. People started sharing their dogs, families and stories with us and we became a little community. I handpicked a few people that were most active in participating... Continue Reading →
