"Old Dog Dawson" Single Greeting Card
"Dawson came into a big shelter as a "stray" but we guess he was put outside when he wasn't wanted anymore - he has obviously been well cared or and used to being part of the family. He didn't move from his bed at the shelter for 5 days, didn't get a vet exam or behavior assessment and they thought he was too old and crippled to move. That made him an Old Dog Haven candidate, but he pranced out of the shelter and into the volunteer's car with great relief. He's very healthy for his advanced age, though he has arthritis in his back and hips that limits his activity, but he's completely deaf and has that "old dog bark" when he wants to communicate. Dawson clearly is drawn to gentle school-age kids, will slowly march alongside with his head under their hand and a big smile on his face. We would love for him to have a "job" being a child's best friend but he is most welcome here for the rest of his life."
This is a single Note Card plus envelope printed with the image of a Colored Pencil and India Ink painting by me, Melody Lea Lamb. For this greeting card I've also incorporated computer generated graphic design for the background. The Note Card is printed from my Epson printer with Archival Ink on Archival Paper with a Matte finish. These cards are rated to last close to 100 years without fading (if kept out of direct sunlight). Each card is signed and dated on the back. Your card measures 4.25 inches by 5.50 inches, (when opened they are half a sheet of letter size card stock) My signature, title, and website are printed on the back. Blank inside. I print your card fresh to order, please allow one extra day of handling time for the ink to cure. Each individual Giclee Greeting Card is sealed in a Cello-Polypropylene sleeve to further protect it until you are ready to give it to that special someone, or if you wish, put it in a frame. I mail your card in a rigid mailer via first class mail in a rigid mailer. Search A4C (Art For Critters) here on Etsy for more artists whose work is dedicated to animal charity!
