Your work is so wonderful! I love the picture of Zeus the dog. He has big brown eyes like my dog Shadow Dante. Just about the same size, too--although Shadow is a chihuahua.
I'm doing a virtual blogging trip through the USA, trying to link to a blog or two in all 50 states. I'm going to link to you as one of my Ohio blogs!
Sue, I wish I could have been there..How was the turn out?
Thank you mom2fur. I think the portrait of Zeus resembles a chihuahua too.

What a great idea to blog all 50 states! Thanks for including me.

The Critter show went well-- lots and lots of people! It was fun and got to enjoy lots of art and music-- what could be better than that!

Thanks for asking!
