In Memoriam

Speck – a/k/a The Manager

Speck, the original shop dog of Cracked Vessel Vintage, greeted every customer by flopping onto his back, giving them the opportunity to rub his belly. And what an opportunity it was.

Speck was as mellow as they come, with people, dogs, and even the occasional cat (very occasional – he and Cowboy share the DNA-deep dislike). He had a personality like no other, and our connection was deep. He followed me daily through the streets of Old Torrance. My furry shadow.  Beautiful Speck left us on January 18th, 2016, traveling beyond this world the way old puppy dogs must. He will be forever my soul mate and sweet baby, and forever the muse of Cracked Vessel Vintage.
