Default K-9 Carnival/Training Op



Ion and I chillin' at the local kennel club's K-9 Carnival. I was asked to come and do caricatures of dogs as a local artist. Figured it was a fantastic event to bring Ion to and let him experience more people, dogs, and distractions. Absolutely no one believed me that he was only 10 months (even those who know when he was born), the most common remark was how mature he behaved. We were working on him not ducking away from a hand over his head as this will happen ALOT in therapy work, so I took advantage of all the kids. He was a little ace, and i even got my first invitation for therapy work once we are certified. It was an awesome day!

Looks like a fun event :-) I love the idea of caricatures of dogs and hope they went over well. What types of things go on at the carnival?

It was a busy day starting at 9 and going til 4. There were agility demos, flyball demos, a rally course set up for fun, dog games like a hot dog toss, the therapy dog group was there (Ion and my teachers who were thrilled to see him there), micro-chip clinic, a couple of local stores with shops set up, and a pet psychic. My caricatures went over well, as I hear better than last year due to my speed. Last years artist was slower and pricier. I worked low cost and quick.

This was the kind of sketching I offered--it's an older poster, but gets the idea across. It's Ash and Parker.
