BoW WOW!!! Dogs RULE!!!
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance,
The wise man grows it under his feet.
-James Oppenheim

The picture of me in the field was taken last summer, unbeknown to me..
How time flies....

But with every year, we move forward and continue to do more.
Can you believe it has been 8 years now I have been doing resue...

Check out the current issue of "Bark Magazine", page 18, for an art project auction that will benefit "A Place To Bark" in November on the 15Th, 2008.

I have always been a huge fan of "The Bark", this is a very special honor for us here!!!
Hoping the small feature will bring more awareness to "A Place To Bark", and our ongoing efforts to be part of the movement to become a, no kill nation.

Web page to advertise our art auctions will be up soon!!!
BoW WOW!!!

If you go to the website and click current issue, you can click on "Artists unite to help a great rescue group" the link will bring you to our website !!!
I know I am rambling on about this, I'm just thrilled!!!

This fabulous video featured below was created by: Rebecca Lansdowne of Art Paw.
It showcases the artwork up close and personal. Also included is a very fun interview with artist Jill Beninato of "Sit Stay Smile Photography", who hosted the art collaboration & put the books together painstakingly by hand. She is a non stop work horse, donating time to the animals in need, doing her art and being a full time wife, mother and dog mom on top of all of that!!

An AmAZing art book project, 13 artists were asked to create 14 pages for this book project.
These were the very talented ladies that participated:

Jill Beninato of "Sit Stay Smile Photography"
Linda O'Neill of Abby Creek Studios
Jamie Pflughoeft of "Cowbelly Photography"
Leigh Jackson of "Noisy Dog Studio"
Anne Leuck Feldhaus of Anne Leuck Feldhaus Studio Ltd.
Manon Doyle of "Hoochie Poochie Studios"
Moira McLaughlin of "Dream Dogs Art"
Melissa Langer of "Pug Notes"
Rebecca Lansdowne of Art Paw
Nicole Mlakar-Livingston of Nicole Mlakar-Livingston Photography
Wendy Crumbley of 2 Dog Studio
Kathy Weller Wellerwishes Pet Portraiture
& Me:) Bernie Berlin of "The Cre8tive Eye Studio" (not as talented but humbled to be asked:)

Each artist received their copy of the book and an extra will be auctioned off on e-bay November 15, 2008. Web page coming soon!!
Each artist did their interpretation of the theme "Dogs Rule" in the media of their choice.
The book is 8x10 inches in size, with canvas board covers to protect the artwork enclosed.
These a few pictures of the many pages in the book.

Photography by Jill Beninato, because Bernie is always too busy taking care of the dogs and othewise wouldn't post as much, if not for her wonderful friends helping her out:)

A very special "Thank YOU" to Jill & the Amazing artists who created this book, Bark Magazine and to all of you that read this..
