Our neighbor’s dogs, Willa, Sparky and Gussie.

Our neighbor’s foster dog, Cody. Cody was adopted. He is a big sweetie, and helped us through.


Our Foster dog, Ice, Husky and Akita.

After 5 weeks, we officially adopted Ice, April 30th.

Big guy, sweetheart, blue eyes on squirrels.

We lost this beautiful fellow last week.
He was very sick: diabetic ketoacidosis
He was failing very quickly. He was drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot more than normal and throwing up a lot. Poor guy. We did the hardest thing, and chose euthanization. We could not bare to see him suffer any longer. No real cure that would work for him. It all happened so fast.
We are heartbroken, it will take us a while to get used to this empty house. He was a beautiful dog with many fine qualities. He was also a very difficult dog in many ways. We gave him the best life we could. He was 10 years old. Thankfully the end was a peaceful sleep with us beside him, in his own home.we miss him so much.

The last couple of weeks have been surreal. Fires everywhere.
Found these paintings I did in 2002.
Where did the animals go in the fires?

I hope it is OK, this IS off the internet.
I don’t know who they are.

Found this pic of little Mr. Tuff-Tuff.

It is a weird time to have a show, but if you are in Portland, the gallery is set up for social distancing, and very inviting.
You can also see the show online @ Guardino Gallery, and if you have a chance to take a look—either way, I hope it will make you smile.
Thank you!
I hope all is well with you.
