FROM BOTTOMS UP: "Light and Dark (Amber)" and "Amber," both 6" x 8", portraits of a Golden Retriever Therapy Dog. One painting will go to my client and the other one is up for grabs ($324 plus s&h, or only $291.60 plus s&h if you are a returning collector). Inquiries may always come to me.
It's phenomenal what a pet can bring into your life, but then there are special dogs like Amber who go well beyond what a regular animal gives. Therapy dogs are a calming and healing presence. They help individuals cope with trauma, provide comfort during hospice care, encourage quiet children to come out of their shells, bring smiles and unconditional love to those in nursing homes, even act as a surrogate set of ears for reluctant readers. There's no end to the good that a therapy dog can do, and Amber here is going to work miracles during her life.
