Meet Rocky.  He’s a Red Tick Hound and Beagle cross.  That combo makes for a handsome dog, huh?  This is a painting I did for his “mother” to use at a fundraiser her rescue group, Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland, held recently…and of course, she gets to keep the portrait of her charming boy.  (I’m going to put a link to the Beagle Rescue website on this blog…look for it on the right side of the page.) 

There are so many wonderful rescue groups working in just about every community across the country.  I’d like help out all of them, by adopting dogs and by donating money and time, but I’m only one person and I’m close to my maximum allowable (by my husband!) number of dogs.  So, I donate custom pet portrait gift certificates to rescue group fundraisers as often as I can. 

Connecting with Rocky’s mom was pure serendipity: she ordered some shampoo from my other website and she mentioned she was involved with dog rescue.  I volunteered a portrait and the timing was perfect as they had the annual Beagle Bash coming in just a month.  And guess who the high bidder was?  Yup, Rocky’s mom…so I will be painting Rocky’s “sister”, Carly, very soon.
