I'm all set to lay down some colors on canvas in my new art studio with my best buddy, Beau.  He wasn't too sure about stepping inside, but a couple of treats changed his mind.  Next thing I knew he was lying on the new bed I bought for him t...

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY, BEAU!

A blythe spirit--this is the same happy face I saw smiling at me through the chain link cage at the shelter on 10/17/2009  Today is my basset Beau's 5th "Gotcha Day." Five years ago today I found the most wonderful dog in the world at a high-kil...

DOG PARK BULLIES

Oct 16, 2014

On October 10, 1995, I lost my dear basset hound, Dolly, unexpectedly to Thrombopathia, a rare hereditary bleeding disorder no one knew about at the time. Seeing the spark of life extinguished in those beautiful cinnamon eyes, like someone turned out a bright light in a room, affirmed to me...
