Tom Kemper is most well-known as a pioneer and early leader in the community of green, or, sustainable businesses. He began Dolphin Blue, a triple-bottom line business that provides only environmentally responsible and socially-enriching products, in 1993. Kemper is widely acknowledged as a deeply committed entrepreneur, whose primary intent is to leave our planet in better condition when he leaves her, than when he took his first few breaths here in 1953.
Hank the Cowdog lay cold and lonely on the side of Texas Highway 281, when, early on the morning of January 9, 2010, Kemper found the adorable puppy, Hank, huddled against a large boulder, shivering and scared, having just been dumped from a car, whose occupants gave Tom the greatest gift he would from then on, have ever received.
Hank is an amazing and exceptionally gifted canine athlete, who is so laser-focused on catching a flying disc, that he makes Tom look better at throwing the frisbee than he really is. The pair has tossed and fetched in excess of 50,000 flying discs over the past six years, even making their combined appearance (against all odds), in the 2014 SkyHoundz HyperFlite Canine Flying Disc World Championships in Chattanooga, TN.
