Here's a commission I just finished.
It's for a new baby in California.
I also make this size for dogs and cats.

The girl dogs and I have 6 houseguests.

All six give really good houseguest.

Two humans, four dogs.

This is Snitch (left), Scudder (right), both rescues.

Scudder is my favorite male friend of all time.
I'm not joking!

They belong to my friend Mary Ellen.

They're in the neighborhood for agility trials in Tampa.
Two GREAT dogs owned by a GREAT friend.
Scudder is a MAD dog. Master Agility Dog.
Snitch is on her way if Mary Ellen can get her to focus.

The other human is Ann.
Her dogs are Tag and Tenor, border collies.
Tag is in the top ten in her size in the nation.
Tenor is on his way.
Photos soon.

Six glorious gorgeous barking dogs.
Great laughs.
Great food.
Great prosecco and wine.

I'm one very happpy host with the most.

When I picked her up December 23, 1989, the breeder handed her to me in a christmas stocking.

Single best thing I've ever done for myself.

I am eternally grateful to my friend SUSAN for finding her in the great state of Connecticut. Must be something about that state. Lotta love coming from there. (show Cielo to Liam please, she was born in Stamford)

In my car she would only ride in the rear seat, drivers side. If we rode in a friends mini van or station wagon, she would only ride in the way back.

I bought a station wagon thinking she would love riding in the way back. Wrong. Would not ride in the way back.

Eleven years of suprises.

I'm so glad I've had all the feelings that come with love.
