PLUS, A Special Opportunity to have a life-size head and neck Pastel Portrait of your own dog done by noted artist Andrew Kenyon. His work is treasured by one and all, and his ability to catch the essence of the dog (whichever breed he paints) is well known and appreciated by all who have seen his work!
There are wonderful auction items that have been donated for this event in memory of a beloved person or animal:

This beautiful 14kt Gold Golden Retriever Gaiting Through a Heart Pendant with a 14kt Gold 18-inch Companion Chain and also a lead-free adorable and so realistic Pewter Golden Retriever Puppy Statue has been donated in loving memory of an artist who fully captured the beauty and spirit of our beloved breed, Virginia Perry Gardner, generously given by Ana and Julien Goulet of the G&G Studios in Rhode Island.

Sky's Helpful Hints!

Protect Your Best Friend!

The   Rosemary Farm, an incredible Horse Rescue/Sanctuary Program in upstate New York shared this idea in a recent posting. Just insert the word dog/cat or other companion animal in place of the word horse in the following message and it is relevant for all people with companion animals.

"Please if you own a horse (dog). Take out a life insurance policy dedicated to your horses' (dog's) care after your death. Put a trusted friend on the policy or reach out to a trusted rescue program"

With funding in place most rescues can make a place in their program for your beloved dog. Different states/insurance companies have varied regulations. Please take a moment and review the following article about protecting your pet after you die and pass on this resource information to others. .

"Thanks for reading my tips! If you have one or want us to answer your golden questinos, email mom at j
