After years of having family and friends encourage me to market/sell my artwork, I had one friend that gave that one suggestion to push me on over the edge to branch out and start my own web site.  That suggestion was to start a web site with all the things I have learned over the years about our four legged furry companions.  Art for Paws is my medium to use my art work  to facilitate and promote the value of our companion animals, coupled with tips on their behavior, training, toys and just plain all things dog.  My goals for Art for Paws are to create high quality original artwork for the sale and enjoyment of all who purchase it , while supporting  education for and about our companion animals.  Education is a vital tool for not only enriching our own lives and those of our companion friends, but is also the key to
ending suffering of our homeless four legged friends and reducing the numbers of pets surrendered to shelters every day

Daffy's Soup Kitchen I was small and had a nervous problem around people.  That may be because of the mean kid that threw rocks at me.  
I stayed with that family for probably three months.  I'm notvery good with time.  I had to sleep outside under a car.  It wasn't very comfortable and I was lonely.  Pretty soon,there wasn't very much food for me anymore.  I had to gofrom house to house trying to find something to eat.  Thenone day, I saw a man working on a house in my neighborhood.  I saw him eating lunch every day.  Eventually, I had to gosay, "Hi."  From that day on I got free lunch and didn't evenhave to work that much.  All I did was bark at the occasionalperson walking by.  My job lasted about  a week and then the job was finished. The man was cleaning up and packing to go home.  It started raining really hard and the man was in the house, so I ran to hide under my car.  Then, all of a sudden, the man ran from the house and got in his truck to leave.  I didn't know what to do. Should I stay? Should I run out to say "goodbye"?  Then I saw the man start to drive away.  I was so sad and depressed.  Then I saw the truck stop.  The door opened, and the man whistled for me to come get in the truck.  I guess he could use my help on another job...."
