PJ the Service Dog

11 x 14 in, oil on linen canvas

PJ is a sweetheart who's a service dog in training. You can see a bit of her trademark yellow cape. Through Canine Companions for Independence, volunteers work in their homes with puppies provided by the organization. When the dogs are about 15 months old, they go to a Regional Training Center for more advanced training. PJ will be graduating soon to the next level.
Good luck PJ!

I was lucky enough to come across a woman walking her two collies at the farmers' market last summer. This collie flashed a smile for me as I was taking her picture!

The Observer

Jester is in training to be a guide dog for the blind. So far he's been more of a class clown but I'm sure in time he'll reach his true potential and graduate with flying colors!

As we pack up the decorations, Oscar is hanging on to the last vestiges of the holidays by wrapping himself in the Christmas tree skirt. It's sad to see the holidays end but exciting to think about what the new year will bring!
