Dog walk, etc.

Took our dog for a walk the other day.  That doesn’t sound all that exciting, people walk their dogs all the time.  But, you see, we have a “tightly wrapped” dog who is now doing a lot better on Prozac.  Now, some of you may find this troubling, medicating a dog.  Our dear Moxie, was rescued off the L.A. streets and we adopted her from the OR Humane Society.  She is a Schnauzer mix and a real love.   We have an acre fenced yard and every two hours (she lets us know within 5 minutes of the time) we exercise her by hitting tennis balls from one corner of the yard to the other.  She sprints after the balls until she finally lies down, tongue hanging out, showing she is done.  This goes on from morning until evening.  Because of this high energy, Moxie has not done well on a leash in the past.  Did I say she also “talks” loudly?   So, back to the walk.  Moxie had to go to the vet to get her shots updated.  There is a note in the chart warning the vets that she is “mouthy” and needs to be muzzled during exams.  The vet asked me about Moxie’s teeth, not wanting to experience the “alligator mouth” as she called it.  She did a lot better this time, didn’t bite and less talking.  After the vet, we went for our walk around Oregon City.  We took a trail that looked down on Willamette Falls, beautiful.  Moxie only growled at 2 men who were smoking, she growled and then sneezed from the smoke.  Moxie and I walked 3 miles, beautiful day and the Prozac seems to be working!

So, I have had a great art season.  I participated in 9 art shows and also have my pieces in the Three Rivers Artist Guild Gallery now through the end of December.  I learned a lot, that was the reason for the heavy schedule.  I wanted to find out what I should do in the future, both in the shows I do and in the work I do.  I also met some wonderful and inspiring people along the way.  I have learned so much from fellow artists and from the public.

The studio is clean, the kilns are prepped and I am ready to create.
