Help find Teddi Sue!!!

If you live in the Auburn, Washington area, PLEASE keep an eye out for poor Teddi Sue...who has gone missing, when her owners car was stolen with her inside!

Here is the link to the Dogster blog it was originally posted on:


This is D’Ann and my heart is aching terribly. Teddi Sue and I took a trip up to Washington State this past weekend, intending to be home on Monday afternoon. On Monday morning I filled my car’s gas tank, and then stopped to eat a quick breakfast before beginning the 5 hour drive back home to Eugene from Auburn, Washinton. I left Teddi Sue in my locked car, a 1990 white Toyota Camry, in her crate. I had covered the crate with a blanket so that it could not be seen if anyone were to look into my car. It was a sunny day up here, but not overly warm. I ordered my food then went out to check my little sweetie to make sure that it wasn’t getting hot in the car. I got my food and then went back to check her again before I ate. The temp. in the car was comfortable and she was content. I went in, ate my food and paid. I had last checked her no longer than 15 minutes before. When I went out to begin the 5 hour drive home to Eugene, my car, with Teddi Sue inside, was gone. The Auburn police took the report and have issued an alert to look for my car. I am totally devastated and worrying about my baby girl. The police have asked me to remain here in Auburn for the next few days, because if my car, and/or Teddi Sue, are found, it will probably be within the following 2-3 days . I am doing all I can think of to get the word out and look for Teddi Sue. I will let you know, or phone a pal to let you know (if I don’t have computer access) if I find out anything about my darling little girl. Please, please, please pray for my Teddi to come back to me. Thank you. - Mommy D’Ann

Any thing you can do would be wonderful! Any information can be gathered at the AUBURN POLICE DEPT.

Thank you for your time and your kindness.

Ava + Grayce

Here is my latest portrait. Ava Isabella (the Italian Greyhound) and Grayce (the Miniature Pinscher). They are the beloved furbabies of Megan, who also runs an animal rescue, K9 Concierge (see links on the right...).

They are both great dogs, and Grayce, who is trained as a service dog is also a hero. They had a brother, another Min Pin named Tyson, who was ill and one night the carbon monoxide levels rose to an extreme level in their everyone slept, Grayce was able to detect a problem, and dial 911 for help. Unfortunately for Tyson, he didn't make it with a weakened immune system, but this portrait celebrates the two adoptive sisters that help comfort and bring joy to their owner/mother.

Ode to Odin

Well, here is the portrait that started my revelation/revolution of creating Pop Dog Portraits! Beloved Odin, a lab/sheppard mix who crossed the bridge earlier this year. This was my first commission, a christmas gift for parents of Odin's owner Nicole.

I knew Odin, and he was a great dog, beloved family pet and is dearly missed by all. Here's celebrating his life! My ode to Odin.

I'm in Sway Magazine!

Sway was there! Here's a shot from the Spring 2007 issue of Sway Magazine...a local Canadian magazine that's provided free around city newspaper boxes.

They were at the Colour-Blind Gala this past January at our opening! This summer's show is not one to be missed! I will be posting all the info soon! It will be at the end of July/early August in Toronto's Distillery District, in conjunction with the annual Caribana Festival.
