Why is this important? Because I have found that the more you give, the more you get in return and the return always out numbers the giving part.  That is why I like to not only give monetarily but also by love giving of myself.  My way of saying thank you to all the hard work and volunteer time spent caring for animals in need. Recently, I was asked if I would like to donate something to the non-profit organization Labrador Life Line. I was honored to help and I do love Labrador Retrievers.  I told them that I could donate a pet painting, so this cute puppy is my next pet portrait which will being donated to this non-profit organization. I pride myself on giving back!  My heart usually goes with the dog!  I truly love helping non-profit organizations that volunteer their time to help these wonderful creatures have a better life.

I try to do this on a regular basis. Last year I donated a pet portrait to the “The Big Give of San Antonio”! See the Golden Retriever Ricky that was donated to the “Big Give” in a previous blog here. This time it will be for Labrador Life Line!  A nonprofit organization (501c3) of volunteers created to assist Labrador Retrievers in need. They do this by assisting eligible Labs, whether owned or in rescue, with medical treatment or other special needs that will enable the Lab to live out his or her life surrounded by people who love them. If you’d like to find out more about this orgranization or read some of their success stories thus far, you can stop by their website at: http://www.LabradorLifeLine.org

Each February/March, they hold their Heart Dog online auction that has proven to be very successful in helping them raise funds for their work throughout the year. This auction is their biggest fundraiser and they rely on these auctions to carry out their mission.

Making some progress!

I started this pet portrait that is now a work in progress. This baby is being painted on an 9×12 gallery-wrapped canvas in acrylic.  I will continue to work on her this week to have her ready to send by the end of the month.  Please stay with me and watch my progress.  At the moment, her undercoat is the only part I have painted.  Such a fun study of a chocolate lab puppy!
