Spoiled Fur Child

Mack is a seven-year-old stud muffin. Nikki and Dannow rescued him from JR’s Pups & Stuff – All three of us highly recommend it!

When he is not helping out with the family business, you can find Mack curled up by the fireplace, sunbathing, or covered in all the blankets. Mack’s favorite foods are cheese, bacon and peanut butter, but really any treats are always welcome!

Supportive Wife

Nikki helps The Pintoon behind the scenes. This includes maintaining the website you are currently surfing, curating the social media posts you give a thumbs up, and cheering on Dannow.

On weekdays she is the Marketing Manager for an incredible local Wisconsin company, and tries to spend every chance she gets with family and friends.

Her favorite mammal is Mack, and Dannow reluctantly accepts this fact.
