"Maija", you wanted an update on Chase, so here it is...
I am pleased to tell you "Chase", a.k.a. Drippy, no longer bites, is walking and gives lots of tail wags and kisses:)
He had me very worried, as well as the staff at my vets office, for he did bite on several occasions.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than an unsocialized animal who is terrified by everything. Did you know that fear is the very root of an aggressive dog.
Chase's name was originally Drippy. The vet techs at my vet's office named him, after he came in. He was soaking wet and drippy, when he was brought in, after a car had hit him.
Really excited, for I will get to see & learn about all the wonderful new art products they have.
Not only do I not have to teach, I will get to be a student for a change and will learn, what is new and exciting in the industry.
& I have been asked to teach at the "Creative Soul Retreat" in Melbourne, Australia next year!!!
Yes, I have busy schedule and a medical condition that has been tiring me out a bit more than usual, but have to earn a living just like everyone else and doggies to feed:)
If you wonder who cares for them while I am gone, we will soon have a page up on the website that introduces you, to those who help me care for the animals.
Then, the "after Bernie got ahold of him" photo - that confident stance, the eyes full of love, and the smile! Just like all your dogs look at you.
Your energy and commitment leave me in absolute awe, you make the world a brigher place,
you get the best photos of your dogs! it must be that they know with you they are finally safe and loved, and well on the way to a happy life.
skittles looks especially dear, she looks and sounds like our dog that we adopted from a rescue 5 years ago. shy and nervous at first, she's a much more confident girl now, but she still always wants to know where i am and quietly follows me around the house. talk about unconditional love! i hope skittles and all your sweeties find wonderful homes.
you're a real gem to do what you do. have fun at ranger!
Wish I wasn't so far away those conventions sound amazing....
