When I woke up this morning I heard them, a yawn-like howl and a series of sneezes. Illness? No. The Ranney studio now has two long-haired Chihuahuas clamoring for attention and running us around like we're the pets. It was Daralynn's birthday on the 1st so I helped her bring her dream of having a Chihuahua gang to reality.

Pedro, our oldest dog, has been taught to sneeze on command. He's so good at it that if you're ignoring him (or painting) he'll sneeze until you give him attention. I know, it's adorable. Pablo, our newest dog, opens wide and yawns for attention. They don't play yet but today they sniffed at each other without showing their teeth. Progress and success with dogs, like with art, comes with patience and hard work.

Say cheese!
