About The Canine Connection
The Canine Connection is the expression of a life-long passion for pets and people and the utter conviction that animals and our pets in particular, give us a tangible picture of unconditional love. While we strongly believe that pets are magnificent beings apart from humans, they also serve as an effective bridge for loving people. Did you ever notice how badly you feel when someone fails to acknowledge your dog when he  eagerly wags his tail so vigorously that he's practically dancing? On the other hand, when a guest properly greets your four-legged companion, you almost breathe a sigh of relief; it is mysteriously very personal! We at the Canine Connection marvel at this often missed opportunity to love people. So you can expect us to genuinely connect with your dog and to do everything in our power to see that you are 100% satisfied.

This is little Tido. He belonged to a dear friend, but his precious life was cut short. I really enjoyed working on his portrait. I wanted to give his owner all that I could on this 6 x 8 inch piece of paper. So, I drew him as large as the paper would stand and did not stop drawing until I could see his soul.
Anubis was another soul whose life ended prematurely. He was dearly loved by a very special former student. Tido's owner sent this photo via cell phone, and purchased his portrait as a surprise tribute.
This is Bella. She belongs to an empty-nester who raised three boys. Needless to say, she is very much the center of her mommy's life. The finished portrait was huge (approximately 30 x 36). I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to draw such big eyes!
This is Rory, sporting the signature fall of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. All spiffed up in time for the holidays! I love my loyal clients and miss their furry babies greatly between grooms.
