Commissioned Custom Dog Portraits: Man's best friend is indeed the dog!
They love us unconditionally, play with us, celebrate with us and stick with us through thick and thin. The recent movie Marley and Me comes to mind when thinking about the hijinks a dog adds to your everyday life.The benefits of these furry friends to their people is proven and documented again and again.
Land mines kill 20 people a day in the middle East. The mines are deployed for $3.00 each and it costs $9,000.00 US dollars to send a dog to sniff out and retrieve these killers. The victims are often innocent children.
Afghanistan is now learning from our soldiers how to train their own dogs for this task. These dogs are more accurate then machines. They know the difference between scrap metal and explosives.
Dogs alert families when a child's blood sugar falls to dangerous levels during the night and the family is asleep. The monitors don't always pick up the signal but dogs, usually labs or golden retrievers, are reliable and consistent. They are trained to smell for the sweet smelling breath of a child who is in danger.
Dogs help with depression. When caring for a dependent living creature your attentions are diverted from sad thoughts. Since art soothes the soul and our dogs are part of the family--do not leave them out when adorning your walls with portraiture.
What could be better than a custom commissioned dog portrait?
PS: We love cats too!
