More Open House info...
This is Jack. His Mama won the drawing for a free mini portrait (5" by 7") last year, and now she has a sweet little keepsake for years to come. You could win a mini portrait of one of your pets if you stop by my open house next Saturday, Dec. 2nd:
So, maybe you won't win the portrait, but maybe you'll win a personalized paw print pendant (available with a dog paw print, cat paw print, or horseshoe print). It would look like this:
Still don't think you'd be a lucky winner? Well, not everyone can win all the time, but I still have a little something for you just for coming by (at least for about the first 30 people or so)...just to say "Thanks for coming by."
I hope you'll consider stopping in...Saturday, Dec. 2nd....11 am to 4 pm...contact me for directions.
Two years, four years...forever
It was two years ago today that we lost Teddy, and just over four years that we lost Sophie. I think about them and miss them everyday, as well as all the other dogs and pets I've had and lost....
I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in loving a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time?
We give them back to you, dear Lord,
If you're on my email list, your email invitation will be arriving in your email box very soon. If you're not on my email list and you would like an invitation (that will include the address and directions, let me know and I will add you to my list, or just send you an invitation.) While it is an opportunity to shop for pet lovers on your gift list or for yourself, it's also (and mostly) a no-obligation invitation for you to come by, say "hi" to me and the pups (and Art--the husband and the paintings...) and grab a cookie or two. I also have a nifty little gift for the first 30 or so friends to stop by. So please add this to your calendar, and I hope to see you the first Saturday of December.
