Ron and Amy live in the Northeast with their two children, Rory and Tess, and their gigantic white dog. They enjoy spending time with their family and advocating for animal welfare and literacy causes.

Armed with an old camera he'd received as a gift, Ron took pictures of his dog and some city squirrels.
