St. Louis (KSDK) -- You've all heard of six degrees of separation, right?  In St. Louis, it's two degrees, and this story is proof.  I was walking dogs with my friend Jean in Kirkwood.  Jean told me about falling in love with a Bernese Swiss Mountain pup she had seen walking the week before.  We ran into that pup.  His name was Hank.

Pretty soon, Hank and his human parents were joining us at Jean's house for a puppy playdate with my two dogs Roy and Clyde.  Hank's parents Dana and Brett invited their best friends Ryan and Lisa to join us with their dog, Alpine.  Jean's neighbors Jim and Debbie came over with their dog Rocky.  We met  Jim and Debbie's daughter and  her puppy Neptune.  That puppy play date led to this story!

You know how dog lovers are.  We got to know one another.

Abby Fair, 30, is an ethereal beauty with dreadlocks as long as she is tall.  Abby told us she was a textile artist. She took us to her parent's basement and showed her work.  WHOA!  Beautiful!   But Abby didn't know how to sell her work, so we all stepped in to help.
