Pet Portraits – Chloe

Dianna with Dog - photograph - artist with dogAugust 2011 was quite a busy month for Dianna as it  challenged her physically and emotionally.  Nature decided to stop in and say hello several times — pulling her out of her studio but also giving her a lesson and a new perspective!  What more can an artist ask for!

One of Dianna’s dogs became extremely sick.  She has two Chinese Shar Pei’s – Chloe and Edge.  They truly bring BIG fun and JOY into her life!

Anyway, little Chloe ended up getting very sick for three weeks with Shar Pei Fever (FSF). For those of you unfamiliar with the disease, it’s a build up of amyloids/protein deposits that attack vital organs causing episodic high fevers and severe abdominal pain. In Chloe’s case it was her liver.  Dianna had many sleepless nights caring for her – administering IV fluids every 3 hours and hand feeding her ‘mush’ when she would not eat –  in fact there were times when she wasn’t sure she was going to make it through the day.  Good news is….with lot’s money spent at the Vet and a whole lotta love she’s feeling better and now has a daily cocktail to return back to health!

It’s moments like these that have inspired Dianna’s Pet Expression collection.  Our pets bring us such joy, love, and remind us what is important in life.
