My esteemed Veterinarian and I just bartered (her idea, which makes it doubly nice) for a couple of years of vet bills for my darling dog rescued two years ago and by my side as I write this. She is so smart and accommodating and I am the Alpha dog in our pack, so that makes it very nice. It is good to have the background of dealing with horses for 20 years. Teaches a consistent and loving approach without being too harsh or too milktoasty. Actually feel that parenting and raising animals has a similar approach: consistancy with love, setting boundaries, giving responsibility and rewarding with praise/treats/pats.
She chose a 12 by 16 that was so recently painted that I didn't get a photo of it. (landscape) And, she also chose a 16 by 20 still life that I did at Dena Wenmoh's near Marble Falls on a plein air paint out. And, this last of the owls.
