You'll find a new group of images in the Gallery. I've been donating painting of the K-9's in the Sheriff's office. Wake county is lucky to have this group of dogs and their handlers, and as I finish another portrait, I'll add it to the Gallery. These beautiful animals are well (and humanely) trained to find lost people; track the bad guys and aid in their arrests; find cocaine, meth and other drugs, plus explosives. The dogs are often at as much risk or more than the deputies. So far I have met 2 Bloodhounds,plus a number of labs, shepherd dogs and Malanois. Each of the dogs has a dedicated trainer/handler deputy, and lives with its handler and his family. All of those I have met are friendly, energetic and playful, when appropriate, and very focused when need be. I had at least 2 people break into my house and studio last summer. So I am doubly pleased to be able to say thank you to the Sheriff and his team in this way. And if you are interested, a deputy and his dogs are frequently available to meet and greet. Just give them a call!
