  1. I am signing up because I totally understand where you are coming from. We lost our dog a few years ago and my husband says he can’t live thru the loss of another dog.
    But, I have a family member that had some brain issues this spring who is leaning on his dog for support. And, i am sending this notation to the family. Maybe something will come of it!
    Great approach for attracting new clients. Good luck. cree scudder

    • Hi cree, thanks for stopping by my website. It is amazing what dogs (and cats) can do for people. Just looking at them gives me a lift, and painting other peoples animal companions lets me spread the joy.
