A Dude enjoying the transition from Dude to Dad. A self-proclaimed Neo-Hippie and The Dude of the House for a young family of four, an ever-growing herd of animals, a blossoming landscape, Earth-friendly living, all sorts of household projects, and a healthy addiction to surf.
As a prerequisite to his Dude and Dad status, the Dude is required to “know best,” or at least “act as if,” to ensure Dude’s world doesn’t spin off its axis, and we can all enjoy navigating through the adventures along the way. This clearly doesn’t mean that the Dude actually does know best…but don’t tell the kids; they still believe it. Mrs. Dude is a different story; she’s on to the charade but does a great job letting the Dude think he knows best…gracias Mrs. Dude.
PS – The Dude is an ordained Dudeist Priest. So, if you have an upcoming wedding and are in need of a minister with absolutely no experience, a loose moral code, and a laid-back perspective, he could be your guy….for an unbelievably large fee, of course
Double PS – The Dude is also a card carrying member of Beard Team USA, so your wedding could be blessed with fabulous facial hair worn by a true professional…just saying…that huge fee could be well worth it.
The true brains (and beauty) behind the Dude. Motherly sage with an instinctual understanding of how to cooperate with the natural rhythms of life.
Lover of all things pink and glittery. Can’t pass a flower without asking “Can I pick it?” A close second to the Mrs. as the true brains behind the Dude.
The newest arrival to Casa de Dude, and arguably the cutest. The Little Dude spends his days learning life’s finer points from the Dude and trying not to poop on himself too much.
Marley (aka Marles Barkley, Marles, Mar Mar, Bubba)
The Dude’s right-hand man and the epitome of Dudeness. Marles can chill for days on end.
Beans (aka Beaner, Beanerina)
Part chihuahua, part pit bull (not really) and all man. Beaner isn’t the brightest pooch, but what he lacks in smarts he more than makes up for unadulterated happiness…dude is just happy to be alive, and he’ll prove it by spinning in circles at random.
Bella (aka The Hyena)
The Hyena is some sort of giant chihuahua hybrid with the instincts of an escaped prisoner. She will eat anything in her path and will run for days.
Tuck & Franklin
The windowsill mascots are hands down the quietest and easiest to please members of Casa de Dude.
