I love to express my creativity in a number of ways, including my artwork! I love comic book art, pop art, and I hope my dog tags reflect that!

I rescued my first Golden Retriever in 2005! He changed my life for the best! 

Then in 2014 my mom adopted a Golden Retriever puppy. Months later, she was diagnosed with cancer and not too long after that she could no longer take care of him, and I took him in.

Four months after I took him in she passed away. As I was going through some of the stuff in the bedroom, I came across a metal dog tag in the shape of a heart with the words "bless and protect me" engraved on it.

Of course, it became a charm on Dudley's collar so he'd always have a piece of his Grandma close to his heart.

My St. Francis of Assisi tag is not only for my Dudley, but it's also to honor my mom and her love for dogs and all animals! And I create dog tag art in honor of her!
