This is one of several ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) I am giving to a friend. He has many rescue dogs, one of them a bloodhound named Calhoun.

If you would like a tiny portrait of your dog,cat  or other pet on an ATC, I can create them for a $5.50 donation for each card.


1) Go to our “Donate” button to make a paypal donation.
2) In the notes/comments area, please list any specifics you would like for each card. ex: breed/color of dog or cat,with a red bowl, chasing a ball, sitting down, etc., or let me know if you’d like to be surprised.
3) If more specifics are needed, please email me at before ordering.
4) Only 1–3 animals per card,please. These are tiny, and can get cluttered easily.

Sweet Seniors: Bubba.


Bubba and his sister, Cissy, were part of a litter of five puppies that my stepdad found in an abandoned trailer. He looked after them until they were weaned, and he tried and tried to catch the mother dog, but couldn’t. Finally when the puppies were old enough to be away from their mother, he took them all. We adopted out three, and kept two. Two were returned. The two sets of littermates are well into their teens and have their share of old-age problems,but they are all very sweet puppos. This is Bubba, who was always the most robust of the group, but now failing vision and joint issues slow him down a bit.
