I began the Dog series after rescuing my dog Toby. Quick as he could chew through a carpet, chair, or sneaker…is how quickly he became a member of our family. The truth is…. he trained me not to become attached to any object. Kitchen chairs? Shoes? Shirts? Who needs them when you compare that to the important things in your existence? Like having a slobbering beast to greet you after a long, hard day of life.
