I wanted to update everyone that has asked about Bella my dog. She starts her 3rd week of Prozac tomorrow and we should know soon if it is working. So far no side affects that I can see.

It takes 3-6 weeks to kick in, so I have to be patient. I will update after we know something.

In the meantime this is how she is when I am home with her LOL.

In other news I have been painting, daily, and hopefully I will have new photos to share soon, perhaps tomorrow.

Over in my ETSY shop I am having a Spring sale, 15% off all items for the rest of March and all of April. I may be adding new paintings to the list this week if I can get the photos taken, so check in often. To get the discount just type in SPRINGSALE when the coupon window comes up at check out.

Spring has sprung here, but no flowers yet, just a few leaves on trees and a bit of grass.

The skies sure are blue though :-).

Life is grand.

Happy Saturday! XOXO

It is SUCH a gorgeous day (& I haven't left the apt yet!)
Thankfully the days are longer! If you've got a good owner, the life of a dog always seems appealing... eat, sleep, walk, affection... all sounds good.
Looking forward to seeing your latest artistic endeavors, and glad to hear you had a wonderful B-day!

aw Annie, Bella seems at peace when she's home with you. I hope, eventually, she'll find inner peace even when she's alone.

I'm so happy you're painting every day! yay! I miss it.

Big hugs...and a belated birthday wish for all things good!

Annie, have you heard of TTOUCH?

This is the South African link

We have just started it on Digby and are amazed at how much it calms him. We took him to a trainer because he is so boisterous and difficult to handle with visitors or on walks. She introduced us to TTOUCH. It also helps with fear of thunderstorms and separation anxiety.
