First, let me explain the name...
"Uncle Ed" isn't my real name, it's a nickname. One day in the dog park my dad called me "Knucklehead." A woman nearby misheard him and said, "Is your dog named Uncle Ed?" Ever since, my mom and dad jokingly refer to me by this name.
I have various other nicknames, including Sensei. My mom says I'm deserving of this name since I teach kindness.
This is me in NY this past Thanksgiving. Such a handsome guy... Don't you agree?
